Corona Virus - Red Wind Casino Update
The Nisqually Red Wind Casino and Medicine Creek Enterprise Corporation, as guided by the Nisqually Indian Tribe, are electing to extend the closure of our Tribal Gaming Facility, planning for tentative re-opening on Tuesday, April 14th pending further review as the date nears.This decision was made in recognition of recent proclamations by the Tribe to close the reservation boundaries and institute stay-at-home orders to the tribal members and residents of the Nisqually Tribal community. The Casino, as one of the largest employers in Thurston County, and as a locals hospitality business on the I-5 artery, understands that its contributions to influence the conditions of the pandemic is of the highest priority for the public safety and well-being of our tribal community and those communities around us.
To effectuate change and contribute to flattening the curve of this infectious disease, we will continue ongoing monitoring of this pandemic, monitoring dates of stay-at-home ordinances of both the Tribe and State, staying connected with other Tribes and Washington Indian casinos, and make the most responsible decisions we can to help the situation improve.
We look forward to the day we can resume business and open the doors to our valued guests and for our team members to return in full force to what we feel is our second home and second family. During this time, we hope to do what we can to help our team members, tribal communities and guests stay updated and informed. We do miss the lively and entertaining day to day operations but we are sure with this added effort, we will be back open one day soon to offer our outstanding service, fun and great food in the weeks to come.
Thank you for your understanding through the closure.
Cheebo Frazier, General Manager
