REDDING, Calif.- Win-River Resort and Casino is back in business this weekend, but things will look a bit different than they used to.


After being closed for over a month, Win-River Resort and Casino is back open.


“It’s great to be back. I’m glad that the casino is back open again,” says Angel Cruz, who lives in Redding.


“We felt like we were ready to open with our reopening plan based on all the social guidelines that have been passed from the federal, to the state, to the local level, and our plan we feel exceeds any of the plans out there right now,” says Gary Hayward, general manager of Win-River Resort and Casino.


Since opening, the casino has implemented certain safety changes. Before going inside, people must have their temperature taken and wear a mask.


The casino has also placed a number of hand-sanitizing stations throughout the floor, there’s limited food service, no alcohol is served, and there’s plexiglass barriers.


“So we’re allowing two people per machine in case somebody has somebody with them to keep that social distancing element in place,” says Hayward.


In addition, the casino is allowing limited capacity of up to 700 people, blackjack tables are off limits, and cleaning and sanitizing procedures have been ramped up.


“As soon as somebody gets up, the machines are wiped down,” says Hayward. “So we’re making sure that before someone gets on the machine, it’s wiped down and that’s just taking place continuously.”


The manager says all safety measures put in place is to keep their employees and guests.


Win-River Resort and Casino is the first Indian casino to reopen in the state.

We began the new week with plenty of sunshine and heat around northern California, but more heat, more wind and more potential fire danger are ahead for our area.
