The number one priority for Odawa Casinos is to keep our team members, the community and guests safe.

Extensive planning has gone into opening the doors again and we look forward to your return!

In an effort to maintain a safe environment for our guests and employees, Odawa Casino may utilize an electrostatic sprayer in conjunction with CDC/IHS cleaning and disinfecting guidelines. The use of this machine will be reserved for high traffic guest areas which will be closed to the general public while in use. Any employee operating an electrostatic sprayer will be required to wear protective glasses, mask, and gloves. Upon completion of using an electrostatic sprayer the employee will remove the PPE and wash any exposed skin with soap and water.
There will be health and hygiene reminders throughout the property including the proper way to wear, handle and dispose of masks and face coverings, gloves and PPE. Electronic signage will also be used for messaging and communication.

Our employees have been given clear instructions on how to respond swiftly and report all presumed cases of COVID-19 on property to the Health & Safety Coordinator who will report to the Health Department. Employees are instructed to stay home if they do not feel well and are instructed to contact a manager if they notice a coworker or guest displaying or complaining of a cough, fever, shortness of breath, chills, a new loss of taste or smell, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or other known symptoms of COVID-19. Employees and guests who are exhibiting any of the symptoms of COVID-19 while at the property are instructed to immediately notify their manager (employees) or security (guests). A certified EMT will be on site 24 hours per day during the initial reopening period.
If we are alerted to a presumptive case of COVID-19 at Odawa Casino, we will work with the Health Department to follow its recommended protocols.
