Native hotels and casinos on the Navajo Nation will stay closed through June 7th. The Navajo Gaming Board of Directors approved an executive order from the Office of the Vice President Friday, to extend the State of Emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout the casino’s closure period, every team member at Navajo Gaming has maintained their health care benefits extended to them through Gaming’s self-funded program. Navajo Casinos and hotels have been closed since March 17th due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, all casinos and hotels have gone through a deep cleaning and disinfecting. The closure order could be extended if the pandemic has not subsided by June 7th.
