PORTERVILLE, Calif. — The Tule River Indian Tribe Tribal Council announced in order to protect their staff and they community, they will remain closed through the start of June.

This is the second time the casino announced it will extend its closure since the initial announcement on March 18.

The Casino’s closure is one of several steps the Tribal Council said it has taken in recent weeks to address the imminent health threat of COVID-19. In addition to closing the Casino, Tribal Council asked employees and guests as well as tribal members to “please continue to shelter in place” as requested by the State of California and the Federal Government for the health and safety of all.

The Tribal Council said did not make its decision lightly, recognizing the financial impact the extended closure would have not only on the Casino, but also the Tribe, as well its valued employees.

Tribal Council looks forward to reopening the Casino as soon as possible. In the meantime, its overarching message is: “STAY SAFE, STAY HEALTHY, WE CARE.”
