Fort McDowell Casino reopens its doors today

15 May 2020

Fort McDowell Casino is reopening today. The Arizona casino has implemented new social distancing and other policies to ensure the safety of guests.

Below are a few or the new guidelines posted on the casino's website:

Thermal Cameras and Device

  • Points of entry will be limited to allow our security team to conduct non-invasive temperature checks utilizing handheld temperature scanners and thermal cameras
  • Anyone displaying a temperature over 100.0°F will be taken to a private area for a secondary temporal temperature screening
  • Any Team Members or guests confirmed to have a temperature over 100.0°F will not be allowed entry to the property and will be directed towards appropriate medical care
Physical Distancing

All resort outlets will comply with or exceed local and/or state mandated occupancy limits. You will notice us using the term “physical” distancing instead of “social” to implore you to keep distance from those that have not traveled with you to the property.
  • Plexiglas Shields: Plexiglas shields will be installed at service counter areas throughout the casino, hotel, restaurants, pool and back of house areas.
  • Floor Decals: Guests will be advised and directed to practice physical distancing by standing at least six feet away from other groups of people not traveling with them while standing in lines, using elevators or moving around the property. Floor decals have been installed throughout the property to guide you.
  • Physical Layouts: Restaurant tables, slot machines and other physical layouts will be arranged to ensure appropriate distancing.
  • Team Members: Team Members will be reminded to practice physical distancing by standing at least six feet away from guests and other Team Members whenever possible. In addition, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be provided to protect Team Members (see below). Back of house Team Member flow patterns will be rearranged where possible to ensure social distancing.
Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer dispensers, touchless whenever possible, will be placed at key guest and Team Member entrances and highly frequented areas, such as driveways, reception areas, hotel lobbies, the casino floor, blackjack tables, restaurant entrances, meeting and convention spaces, elevator landings, etc.
