COVID-19 FAQ

Dear valued guests,

Yá’át’ééh! At Navajo Gaming the well-being of our guests, team members and communities continues to be our priority. We do look forward to welcoming you back soon and have taken steps to provide a trusted space in which you can enjoy the same fun environment that you have come to expect, with the same friendly service you deserve.

While we get everything ready for your return, we want to take this opportunity to acknowledge that there will be changes to how we operate, and prepare you for them.

Please maintain social distancing, and keep at least six feet apart if standing in line. We will limit the number of people that can be in the casino and the travel plaza to under 50% of maximum occupancy. Our slot games will be restricted to every other machine, and the number of players per table game will be limited. Buffets will remain closed, and our other restaurants will have more spacing between tables and party sizes will be limited.

Upon entry to any of our four casinos or the travel plaza, a non-intrusive temperature check of all guests and team members will be taken. If you exhibit any of the symptoms for Covid-19, please stay at home and those whose temperature is above 100.4 °F will not be allowed entry.

Our team members will be wearing masks that cover their nose and mouth. In accordance with CDC and Navajo Nation guidelines and mandates, we will also require guests entering our properties to wear a mask.

If you need a mask, we will be happy to provide one to you.

We will increase the frequency of cleaning and sanitation of all public areas and high touch surfaces. Sanitizing wipes will also be available to guests to use at their convenience.

After any hand-to-hand exchange with a team member, the guest will be offered a small bottle of sanitizer lotion.

Our team members will be required to wash their hands frequently for at least 20 seconds. We encourage our guests to do the same.

Extra hand sanitizer stations are being added throughout the properties.

These new practices are for your safety and peace of mind, and for the welfare of everyone that visits any of the Navajo Gaming casinos and travel plaza. We will continue to deliver on our promise of excitement, entertainment value, and friendly staff during these unprecedented times. In the meantime, please follow the guidelines set forth by our health and public officials. If we all do our part, we will be able to reopen our properties and get back together again safely.
