17 March 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Confederated Tribes of Coos Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians of Oregon Tribal Council directed the casino management to begin implementing plans to temporarily suspend all operations at the Three Rivers Casino and Three Rivers Casino Resort.

“These are very uncertain times and tough decisions have to be made to ensure the health and safety of our tribal members, team members and guests”, said Doc Slyter Tribal Chairman. Both Three Rivers Casinos are proud community members and are doing their part to help contain this virus and ensure everyone’s safety. We will cease all Gaming, Hotel and Restaurant activities on Tribal property by 5:00 p.m. today, March 18, 2020 for duration of two weeks and plan to reopen April 1st.

The Tribe will provide emergency paid leave and benefits for casino resort employees during this temporary closure, and will continue to monitor the situation nationally and locally. Updates on casino operations will be posted on the casinos’ website,, as new information becomes available.

This direction from the Council is consistent with national and state guidance to reduce large gatherings as part of all efforts to curb the trend of transmission of COVID-19 during this global pandemic.
