Mohegan Sun in Connecticut planning temporary closure to the public

16 March 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Connecticut Governor’s office and The Mohegan Tribal Council are in discussions on the closure of Mohegan Sun to the public.

During the period of closure to the public, Mohegan Sun will take the opportunity to focus on cleaning and deferred maintenance. In the interim, Mohegan Sun has decided to take additional actions property-wide which include the temporary closure of the Race Book, Wolf Den, Poker Room, Earth Hotel Tower, Seasons Buffet and novelle as well as the slot machines and vast majority of table games in the Earth section of the casino. All guest, charter and line bus transportation is also cancelled in the interim.

In the Sky section, where gaming and other amenities will continue until the temporary public closure, every other slot machine will be temporarily deactivated as an additional social distancing measure. The spacing and spreading out of seating for this purpose will be in effect as well for the remaining table games in this section of the casino.

“Working closely with and taking guidance from Mohegan Tribal Health officials and State and Federal health authorities, while continuing to increase the overall safety of our guests and team members, Mohegan Sun today announces significant changes to our operations,” said Jeff Hamilton, President & General Manager of Mohegan Sun. “These are difficult times the state and nation are facing, and as such, they bring about difficult decisions for Mohegan Sun and Mohegan Tribal leadership.”

In the past week, the resort has made preventative enhancements on already stringent standards, including rigorous cleaning procedures across property. Mohegan Sun has also announced continuous large event cancellations and postponements.

Temporary closures that are set to be taken immediately include:

• Race Book

• Wolf Den

• Earth Tower hotel

• All slot machines in the Earth section of the casino

• Poker Room

• The majority of table games in the Earth section

• Summer Valet

• Autumn and Summer Essentials convenience stores

• Seasons Buffet & Earth Food Court

• novelle

• Kids Quest / Cyber Quest

• Bow & Arrow Sports Bar and all floor bars in Casino of the Earth

• Winter Player’s Club Booth

• Bobby’s Burger Palace

Valet parking for Casino of the Sky will remain open in the interim, as will gaming in this section, which now operates with enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocol. Mohegan Sun is actively monitoring developments, evaluating and adapting as needed. Daily communication between Mohegan Tribal officials and the State of Connecticut Governor’s Office will continue as these unprecedented circumstances are being taken very seriously.
