A quick list of latest Phoenix-area casino safety measures as COVID-19 cases spike

Some Phoenix-area casinos are tightening safety measures as Arizona’s COVID-19 cases climb. 

Several Phoenix-area casinos, including Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino, Gila Rivers Hotels & Casinos and Fort McDowell Casino, reopened immediately after Gov. Doug Ducey lifted his stay-at-home order in mid-May.

Other casinos, such as Desert Diamond Casino West Valley, Talking Stick Casino and Casino Arizona, opted for later reopenings. Talking Stick Casino and Casino Arizona reopened on June 1, and Desert Diamond Casino West Valley resumed business on June 5.

Now, some of the casinos that quickly reopened have announced they will implement additional restrictions and protocols.
