Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel to close temporarily

13 November 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Pueblo of Santa Ana and the Tamaya Enterprises Board of Directors (TEI) have chosen to temporarily close Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel due to increases in the spread of COVID-19 throughout the local community. The closure will take effect beginning Saturday, 14 November, at 3 a.m. and can be assumed as temporary.

“During these unprecedented times we’ve chosen to do our part to slow the spread of this virus,” said the Star’s CEO John Cirrincione. “We have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 spreading between guests and employees. At this time, we are most concerned about the projected increases in the spread of COVID-19 during the upcoming holiday season. Given these circumstances, we believe a temporary closure and ongoing assessments are the most prudent courses of action.”

TEI Chairwoman Melanie Martinez explains, “It’s imperative that we all take the necessary safety precautions, such as social distancing and wearing a mask, to limit the spread of the virus and keep our Pueblo community, guests and our employees safe.”

In addition to the closure, the Star is also working closely with the state’s Department of Health to identify anyone who may have been exposed to the virus.
