DURANT – The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma announced last week all Choctaw casino locations plan to resume operations on June 1 with increased health and safety measures. This includes all Choctaw Casinos & Resorts as well as Casino Too locations (travel plazas).  This target opening is contingent upon key health indicators.

“Our priority of health and safety first, everything else second, has guided our actions and decisions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and now also serves as the focal point of our recovery vision within the Choctaw Nation,” Chief Gary Batton said. “We are putting all of the recommended safety measures in place to ensure that our casinos and businesses are ready for our guests when we open in the coming weeks. We are taking every precaution necessary to keep everyone safe.”

The following are a few of the Choctaw Casinos and Resorts safety and health measures:

–     Sanitation wipes will be located throughout the gaming floor.

  • Occupancy levels will be limited to protect the safety of our associates and guests.
  • Acrylic separation panels will be installed at transaction areas.
  • Associates on property will be required to adhere to personal sanitation standards, including wearing a required face covering.
  • Masks will be available, but not required for guests.
  • Gaming positions will be reduced where necessary to promote safety.
  • Table Games will be limited to every other seat, and tables in play will be staggered.
  • Additional sanitation stations have been made available around the properties.
  • Amenities within the property will have occupancy limitations, such as shops and restaurants.
