Avi Resort and Casino suspends operations again

29 June 2020

(PRES RELEASE) -- Avi Resort & Casino has announced it will temporarily suspend all operations of the casino and hotel as of midnight 29 June 2020 until 10 July 2020. As a result of the suspension, the 4 July fireworks show will also be canceled.

In an abundance of caution to protect the safety and health of our community and our Avi Family, Avi Resort and Casino will temporarily suspend operations. The decision came after a planned Covid-19 retesting of over 400 team members with a few team members having positive COVID-19 test results. In keeping with our core values of ensuring the safety and health of our team members and guests, we believe a few is too many today. Additionally, the significant rise in COVID cases in the local area is of utmost concern. The suspension of operations will allow a thorough evaluation and cleaning of the entire property. As well as, address COVID-19 positive results in the future.

"These are unprecedented times and our commitment to the well-being of our community, tribal members, team members and guests is our highest priority.” said Brian Cook, General Manager of Avi Resort and Casino.

We will use this closure to re-examine every aspect of the operation. This includes disinfection procedures, social distancing measures, health checks, testing protocols, masking and how best to protect workers and everyone who visits the property.

Throughout the suspension of operations, we will continue to monitor updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Nevada Gaming Control Board, both the Nevada and Arizona Department of Health Services, and will update our safety protocols and procedures as necessary.

FOR OUR HOTEL GUESTS: Due to our temporary closure, all hotel reservations for arrival dates up to July 10, 2020 will be canceled and fully refunded. Once we reopen, we welcome you to contact reservations to rebook your stay. All guests with existing reservations affected by this suspension of operations will be given a comp on a future trip.
