North Star Mohican Casino Resort in Bowler to reopen
Friday 22nd May 2020
BOWLER - The North Star Mohican Casino Resort will reopen Tuesday after closing for more than two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The casino, which is run by the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians, will reopen at 8 a.m Tuesday with adjusted hours and offerings and additional safety protocols, according to a news release from the casino. It closed its doors March 21.
Once it reopens, the casino will close daily from 3 a.m. to 7 a.m. for deep cleaning. Bingo, table games, the RV park, buffet and self-service drink stations will remain closed, and all shows, entertainment, conventions and events in May and June have been canceled.
Entertainment beyond July is being evaluated and scheduling will be based on lifting social distancing restrictions, according to the casino.
Everyone who enters the casino will have their temperature checked and must wear a mask. Smoking will not be allowed inside the casino. Areas in the casino have been reconfigured for social distancing and the casino will provide hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.
"The health and safety of our guests, employees, and the community is our top priority," general manager Michael Bonakdar said. "As part of our commitment, we want to reassure the public that the North Star Mohican Casino Resort team has been diligently planning and implementing processes to ensure we are doing our absolute best to mitigate any potential spread of COVID-19 upon reopening of the casino, resort and its amenities."
