Suquamish Tribe closes Clearwater Casino Resort to prevent spread of COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Suquamish Tribe announced Monday that its Clearwater Casino Resort will be closing for two weeks.

The casino closure goes into effect at 12 a.m. Tuesday and the resort will close at 11 a.m. Tuesday. The move was taken to protect the health of both guests and staff, according to the tribe’s statement.

“In keeping with our values and traditions, we believe it is important that we collaborate with other regional governments in acting decisively to reduce the spread of the virus,” said Suquamish Tribe Chairman Leonard Forsman. “Epidemics have taken a terrible toll on our people historically, and we believe acting to protect health and safety of our guests and staff is the right thing to do.”

The tribe is currently working on a plan to assist employees and will continue monitoring the situation closely.
