Agua Caliente Casinos to Reopen May 22
The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians will re-open its casinos in Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage at noon May 22 with ‘Play it Safe’ measures in place at both properties.
The re-opening will occur after a more than two-month voluntary closure in response to the Tribe’s March 17 state of emergency declaration on the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation and in an effort to help fight the spread of the coronavirus.
“Upon re-opening, our Tribe’s top priority will be to create and maintain the safest environment possible for everyone who interacts with our facilities, including guests, team members and vendors,” says Tribal Chairman Jeff L. Grubbe. “We have spent the past two months re-evaluating the way we do business in this new environment. We have changed our perspective and have improved upon our business practices. Our guests demand and deserve the kind of care and attention that goes into providing the highest quality experience.”
The Agua Caliente announcement to re-open comes just one day after the Riverside County Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution fully supporting tribal governments to re-open business safely and help jumpstart the local economy. Morongo Casino Resort & Spa, Spotlight 29, and Tortoise Rock casinos announced May 19 that they would be opening May 22.
