The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe announced Monday that The Point Casino will be closing for two weeks starting Wednesday at 2 a.m.
The tribe also mentioned in a press release that the closure will be “reevaluated as necessary.” Tribal-owned restaurants will also be closing but will have take-out options available. Other tribal entities like The Point Hotel, Gliding Eagle Marketplace, High Point cannabis shop and Kountry Corner will all remain open with protocols in place to encourage social distancing and enhanced sanitization. The deli inside the Gliding Eagle Marketplace will temporarily close but is offering preorders with take-out only.
The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe previously announced they will begin limiting operations of tribal government on Wednesday. Essential services, including Health Clinic testing related to COVID-19, will remain available for tribal and on-reservation community members.
There are currently no positive tests of COVID-19 among the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribal community, the release states.
