Kalispel Casino will be closed for at least two weeks

16 March 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Due to the increasingly alarming growth of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Kalispel Casino and the Wellness Center will be closed to the public for at least two weeks out of an abundance of caution, effective today, March 16, 2020. While the recreation facilities will be closed, the health clinic, tribal day care and Kalispel Market will remain open to serve our community.

The Kalispel Tribe of Indians cares deeply about its guests, employees and our community. As conditions are rapidly changing in these uncertain times, we believe it’s incumbent upon all of us to take responsibility for social distancing to protect the health and safety of our community.

We understand the anxiety everyone in our community is facing around the spread of COVID-19. If you have concerns about exposure or symptoms, regardless of where you believe you might have been exposed, please contact the Spokane Regional Health District. More information is available on their website at https://srhd.org/news/2020/learn-more-about-coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19.

We also understand the massive impact this closure will have on our employees and their families. The Kalispel Tribe has generously offered to pay all Team Members for the two weeks that we are closed. While our hope was to remain open for business to continue serving our guests and allowing our employees to earn a living, our circumstances have now changed. We believe a temporary closure is the right thing to do. We all owe it to our community to protect the healthcare system and its resources as we navigate this complex and rapidly changing situation.

Our Tribal leadership team is meeting around the clock and will continue to communicate additional information to you as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, we highly encourage everyone to follow the CDC’s social distancing policies and practice self-isolation as much as possible as we weather this global storm.
