Things will look a bit different when our doors open, and we will be reopening in phases. The phased reopening follows the guidance of public health professionals.

Here are just some of the actions we are taking to keep you and our team members safe. Please see our website for a list of what actions are being taken at each Odawa Casino property to ensure safety:

  • We are taking temperatures before anyone is permitted to enter any of the properties. Team members and guests with a temperature above 100.0 without exception will not be permitted.
  • In following CDC guidelines, Team Members and Guests are required to wear masks at any of the properties. Guests are encouraged to bring and wear their personal masks. Guests wishing to enter the Casino that do not have a mask may obtain one from Security or the Players Club at either Casino, or the front desk of the Hotel while supplies last
  • All properties will temporarily be non-smoking. Designated outdoor smoking areas will be marked.
  • We are following social distancing practices everywhere. Watch for specific reminders throughout all properties.


We look forward to seeing you soon!
