Two Ojibwa casinos announce reopening dates

25 June 2020

Ojibwa Casino - Baraga is going to reopen its doors on 29 June, followed shortly after by Ojibwa Casino - Marquette on 1 July. Both Michigan properties will follow the below guidelines to ensure safety of guests and employees.

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) & Temperature Checks: Masks must be worn anytime a guest isn’t seated at a slot machine. Smoking will be permitted only when seated at a slot machine or in designated areas at each casino.
  • Health Screenings: Ojibwa Casino team members and guests will be required to undergo a simple health screening each day, including temperature checks, prior to entry. All temperature checks will be done with an infrared thermometer not requiring personal contact. Temperature readings of 100.4°F and above will require a secondary temperature check. If the secondary check is also 100.4°F or above, entry will be denied for a 24-hour period. Instructions (following CDC recommendations) for next steps will be provided as well.
  • Barriers: Clear vinyl or plexiglass barriers have been placed between staff and guests where possible to further minimize the transmission of germs.
  • Hand Sanitizing: Hand sanitizing stations have been installed on the casino floor and are readily available throughout the facility. We recommend that you thoroughly wash your hands frequently in the restrooms, following CDC recommendations.
  • Health Concerns: Any employees and/or guests not feeling well should stay home. Vulnerable individuals with weakened immune systems should take special precautions per federal recommendations and consider not visiting until the pandemic has passed.
  • Social Distancing: Please maintain six feet of social distancing between you and other guests or Ojibwa Casino staff members to ensure your safety and the safety of those you come in close contact with. This includes while moving throughout the casino or standing in line. Follow the floor decals for queue lines. We will monitor the capacity on our gaming floor to ensure that there is ample room for social distancing at all times.
  • Watch for Signage: Floor decals and signage regarding social distancing and safety guidelines will be clearly visible.
  • Slot Machines & Table Games: Slot machines will be thoroughly and regularly cleaned throughout the day. If at any time a guest would like their slot machine sanitized, they can push the Service button and a staff member will clean your machine. Seating for slot machines will be configured to meet social distancing requirements. Guests will be allowed to remove their masks while seated at a slot machine and playing if they so desire. They may also remove their mask while smoking at the slot machine or while dining/drinking in our restaurants or at the bar. NOTE: Table games will remain closed at this time.
  • Rewards Club & Cage: Please wear a mask and maintain social distancing when transacting with the Rewards Club or the Cage. Read signage at each location for details.
  • Gaming Promotions: To enforce social distancing, there will be no large drawings, tournaments, or other promotions/special events for the time being. We will announce upcoming gaming promotions well in advance. Rewards Club monthly mail offers will be resumed in a staged process. See Rewards Club for details regarding ongoing promotions and offers.
  • Entertainment: Live music, entertainment, conventions, and banquet services will remain suspended temporarily. We will post updates as we have them.
  • Restaurants & Bars: Please adhere to six feet of social distancing and wear a mask while ordering. Please place your order and take a seat at a table or at the bar. Your order will be brought to you in disposable containers. Leave your disposable items on the table when finished dining. A staff member will bus the table and sanitize it. In each of our restaurants and bar areas, a heightened cleaning and sanitizing protocol will cover all high-touchpoint areas including service counter, trays, drink stations, seats, tables, etc.
