Staying away from other people, staying at home, is critical for individuals who have tested positive for Corona Virus-19. It is difficult to stay at home but it is important because this CoVID-19 is transmitted person to person. Masking your face is imperative and requires taking responsibility and will take discipline. We are truly all in this together, so help our community by really isolating yourself at home if you are CoVID-19 positive.

The closure of the Indian Head Casino occurred this evening at 5:00 p.m. Reopening will occur as soon facility is safe for guests and employees.
