OMAK, WASH. MARCH 17, 2020 - After much consideration and out of concern for the safety and health of customers, employees and the community, 12 Tribes Colville Casinos has made the necessary decision to temporarily close all three casino properties (12 Tribes Resort Casino in Omak, 12 Tribes Mill Bay Casino in Manson, and 12 Tribes Coulee Dam Casino in Coulee Dam).
The closure will take effect at 5PM on March 17, 2020 and will last through April 1, 2020, in accordance with the guidance and practice of the State of Washington.
“The Colville Tribal Federal Corporation’s primary mission is to serve and enrich our communities,” said Colville Tribal Federal Corporation Chief Executive Officer, Kary Nichols. “The health and wellbeing of our team members and our patrons, as well as the larger communities in which we work, is paramount to that mission.”
12 Tribes Colville Casinos have followed guidelines set by the CDC and local health authorities amid concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak and have worked with Tribal health authorities to take appropriate action regarding the spread of COVID-19.
“Despite dedicating additional resources for sanitation efforts and limiting certain aspects of our operations, it is apparent that the correct response to this public health crisis is to do our part in slowing its progression,” said Nichols.
