Why are casinos allowed to operate? 150 150 Sonoma County Emergency and Preparedness Information

Casinos in California are owned by tribal governments and are built on tribal-owned lands. State and county public health officials have worked with the sovereign governments to reopen casinos as safely as possible, while keeping infection rates under control.

Local casinos have reconfigured seating at slot machines and gaming tables and require face coverings for guests and employees. Guests will also have their temperature scanned at the doors. As with other business sectors, customers aren’t allowed to visit if they are sick or if they’ve been in contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus.
