Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is back open. The casino officially reopened to the public on Tuesday.
"We can’t wait to welcome everyone back to Fantasy Springs,” said Chairman Doug Welmas.
The casino has been closed since March 17, when the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians issued a State of Emergency due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The tribe has since amended the order, allowing the tribe to enter phase one of reopening.
The casino has put in place new health and safety guidelines to protect guests, employees, and the community from coronavirus exposure.
“Like many businesses, the coronavirus pandemic forced us to reconsider every aspect of our operation, with the primary focus being the health and wellness of our valued guests and employees,” Welmas continued. “As a result, the Tribal Council decided to err on the side of caution in terms of the timing of our reopening. We will continue to act in the best possible interest of everyone involved during each phase of the process."
Some of the guidelines requested from guests include temperature screenings, mandatory face masks, social distancing, and entering and exiting from one entrance of the resort.
Additionally, each department in the casino has adopted individual procedures based on recommendations from the State of California and Riverside County, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Food & Drug Administration (FDA), and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Phase two of reopening the casino will include in house dining, larger hotel capacity, retail outlets, bowling and live entertainment reopening.
