OKLAHOMA, USA — As casinos across the area prepare for returning customers, the Cherokee Nation has laid out plans for how it will safely reopen.
The "Responsible Hospitality" plan was released Monday (May 18) by Cherokee Nation Entertainment.
The plan addresses entertainment operations protocols including casino gaming, food and beverage offerings, hotel, retail, golf and live entertainment. It outlines procedures for physical distancing, enhanced cleaning and sanitization, and noninvasive temperature screenings for both team members and guests. Those with a temperature in excess of 100.4 F will not be permitted to enter the building.

Cherokee Nation Businesses operates 10 casinos across northeast Oklahoma, including Roland, and has 7,700 employees.
