Miccosukee Resort & Gaming Center temporarily closes

22 March 2020

Miccosukee Resort & Gaming Center announced that it will temporarily close due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Below is a statement posted on the casino's website.

"At 6 p.m. on Sunday evening, the Miccosukee Resort & Gaming will be closing its doors since first opening 21 years ago in 1999. While not considered an essential business establishment in the eyes of the government, we considered the finances of our staff as essential and wanted to keep our doors open for as long as we were able alongside the remaining businesses permitted by the counties.

Although under no legal obligation, and while some businesses remain open, we have decided as a sovereign nation that for the safety of our remaining employees and our loyal guests, it is best to encourage individuals to practice social distancing by removing ourselves as one of the possible destinations from their list.

The Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida has worked diligently towards the safety of our staff and our amazing guests. At the start of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic we implemented even more stringent safety standards than already required by all our employees; simultaneously asking all employees having any symptoms to remain at home. We have been closing various departments while asking those that can to work from home. All employees of the Miccosukee Reservation unable to work from home have been asked to stay home while continuing to receive their regular rate of pay.

We have not had any cases of the COVID-19 pandemic within our community of employees or guests and are confident in the measures that have been implemented thus far. Thank you to our hundreds of employees and thousands of loyal guests. We can’t wait to be back serving both the South Florida community of customers and our incredible employees."
