The Colville Tribal Federal Corporation announces three casino closures due to COVID-19

17 March 2020

The Colville Tribal Federal Corporation announced that its Washington casinos -- 12 Tribes Resort Casino, Mill Bay Casino, and Coulee Dam Casino -- will be closed beginning at 5 p.m. on 17 March through 30 April.

Below is a statement from Kary Nichols, CEO, Colville Tribal Federal Corporation:

The Colville Tribal Federal Corporation’s primary mission is to serve and enrich our communities. The health and wellbeing of our team members and our patrons, as well as the larger communities in which we work, is paramount to that mission. As such, we have continuously followed guidelines set by the CDC and local health authorities for business like ours amid concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak and working with Tribal health authorities to take appropriate action regarding the spread of COVID-19.

Despite dedicating additional resources for sanitation efforts and limiting certain aspects of our operations, it is apparent that the correct response to this public health crisis is to do our part in slowing its progression. Therefore, the CTFC Board has made the difficult decision to temporarily cease operations at our 12 Tribes Colville Casinos beginning at 5:00 p.m. on March 17, 2020. This includes all three casino sites in Omak, Manson and Coulee Dam through April 30th, in accordance with the guidance and practice of the State of Washington.

We will keep our loyal guests and team members updated about this temporary closure, including any change in the date of our reopening, through our website and on Social Media. Please check our website at for additional news.

This is a difficult time for all of us, and we will continue to support our team members, patrons and communities during this crisis. And, to the first responders who are navigating through these tough times we thank you for your support, leadership and compassion.

We look forward to seeing all of you soon.

Kary Nichols, CEO
Colville Tribal Federal Corporation
