Oklahoma sees casinos announce reopening plans

15 May 2020

Apache Casino Hotel announced that it will begin reopening at 10 a.m. on 21 May. Health and safety remains a top priority for the Oklahoma casino, as it implements new safety measures.

Some of these measure include:
  • Initial reopening hours are from 10:00am to 2:00am daily. (The casino will be closed from 2:00am to 10:00am in order to deep clean.)
  • The property will be open in phases, with some gaming machines, food outlets and other amenities, not open in the initial phase. Food outlets will open with limited menus and seating.
  • Points of entry will be limited. Only the two front entrances for guests.
  • The property will be 100% smoke-free, with no smoking or vaping allowed inside, until an undecided future date.
  • All team members and guests will be required to wear a face covering that covers both the nose and mouth. We strongly encourage you to bring you own face covering. A limited number of masks will be available for purchase.
  • All team members and guests will be required to have a non-invasive temperature check at the door and be asked some brief health screening questions. Anyone who states that they feel ill or has a temperature over 100 degrees Fahrenheit will not be allowed inside.
  • All guests will be requested to briefly lower their face coverings for age and identification purposes. Further proof of identification may be required by providing a physical ID card upon request.
  • Guests will need to practice 6-foot social distancing from other guests not in their group, while standing in lines and moving around the property.
  • Occupancy levels will be reduced to maintain enough social distancing.
  • There will be frequent deep cleaning and sanitizing of all public spaces with an emphasis on frequently touched surfaces.
  • Plexiglass barriers have been installed throughout the property.
  • Signage on health and safety, sanitation and social distancing are located across the property and frequent overhead announcement will be made on these subjects.
  • Slot machines, casino chairs, restaurant tables, bar chairs, and other physical layout changes have been made to provide as much distancing as possible between guests.
  • In most cases, every other slot machine will not be available for play or to sit at, except where safety barriers are in place. Slot machines will be routinely cleaned and sanitized and have visible logs of cleaning schedules.
  • Live table games will be limited to 2 or 3 players per table until new divider barriers are in place. Chips and table touch points will be routinely cleaned and sanitized.
  • 4-person maximum occupancy on elevators.
  • The hotel lobby, pool area, business center and fitness room will remain closed in the initial phase.
  • Valet services will remain suspended until further notice.
  • All team members have had health and sanitation training.
FireLake Casino in Oklahoma will follow suit just a day later. The casino will begin reopenong on 22 May at 10 a.m. Below is a Facebook post from the casino outlining the rules to the reopening.
