13 March 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Sycuan Casino Resort announced today that the organization is taking several additional precautionary measures throughout the property amid coronavirus concerns. Sycuan’s top priority is the health, safety and security of its guests, team members and the surrounding community.

After thoughtful consideration and closely monitoring developments, Sycuan is taking the following swift action to further protect its guests and team members:

- All concerts and events in Live & Up Close theatre and Heritage Event Center will be postponed through at least the end of March
- Beginning Saturday, March 14 there will be a temporary closure of The Buffet until we feel it is safe to reopen
- Beginning on Monday, March 16 there will be a temporary closure of select food and beverage venues including Bull & Bourbon, Elicit Bar & Lounge and Hangry Slice until we feel it is safe to reopen
- Sycuan’s one-year anniversary celebrations on March 27 and 28 will be postponed
- Retreat Pool & Cabanas will postpone the opening of the outdoor pool venue and upcoming pool events
- Bingo is postponing all major events in March, removing chairs for a safer distance between players and deep cleaning bingo stations after every session

“We are taking every precaution to protect our guests and team members and are fully committed to the health and well-being of the San Diego Community at large,” said Robert Cinelli, General Manager, Sycuan Casino Resort. “We have a dedicated team who is closely monitoring updates and we will continue to make quick and necessary changes as more information becomes available. Nothing is more important to the Sycuan family than the safety of our guests and team members”.

Additionally, The Sycuan Tribal Council took immediate action to ensure that none of its team members will be negatively affected by the temporary closures.

“To offset any negative impacts our team members may potentially experience due to the extenuating circumstances of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation Tribal Council has approved immediate changes to our employee leave policy,” said Cody Martinez, Chairman, Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation. “It is important to us that we ensure the livelihood of our team members as schools are being closed across the county and as we choose to take the precautionary measures listed above. The changes include, but are not limited to; two weeks of paid leave with no impact to paid time off for any team member who has been displaced by temporary closures and additional measures for team members who have fallen ill or have been impacted by the care and custody of their children. We would like to thank our team members for their patience and understanding as we work through this unprecedented circumstance. We will get through this difficult time together.”
