Osage Nation Will Test Employees For COVID-19 Before Returning To Work

Apr 30, 2020

Before returning to work on May 11, Osage Nation employees will be tested for COVID-19.

A memorandum from Director of Operations Casey Johnson stated that as a quote "precautionary measure" all employees returning to work will be tested for COVID-19 at the Wah-Zha-Zhi Health Center in Pawhuska.

The directive for testing includes all 500 Nation employees, but not casino employees. The testing will take three days and will go in alphabetical order.

Osage Nation Gaming Enterprise has not released a date when they will reopen their casinos.

Johnson also said that May 11 back-to-work date could change depending on what happens with the virus.
