Miccosukee Resort & Gaming reopens after COVID-19 pandemic

MIAMI, FL – At 9 AM on Sunday morning, May 17, 2020, Miccosukee Resort & Gaming will be reopening its doors after the temporary closure in late March due to COVID-19. At this time, there have been more stringent safety standards set that all patrons and employees will be required to abide by.

In order to enter the facility patrons must be 21 years of age or over, are required to wear a mask at all times and be subject to a temperature test prior to entry. There will be no smoking permitted inside the facility but there will be specific smoking areas outside. If the temperature test is too high, the patron will not be allowed to enter the facility. There will be one designated entrance and one designated exit to ensure the 25% capacity of the facility. Additionally, there are disinfecting wipe dispensers installed throughout the facility for wiping down each machine after use.

There will be multiple areas of the facility that will reopen but several will remain closed in order to abide by social distancing standards and to avoid social gatherings. The gaming floor will be open to the public with every third machine available for play. The other areas that will remain open are the Empeeke Aya Deli, the cafeteria, the hot dog stand, the service bars and the gift shop. The gift shop will have masks and gloves available for sale.

The areas of the facility that will remain closed as of now will be the Hotel, valet services, Bingo, Poker, Empeeke Aaweeke International Buffet, Bravo Bravissimo, Café Hammock, Cypress Lounge, Martini Bar, Pa-Hay Okee Salon & Spa, Club Egret and the teen arcade. 

At this time, all employees returning to work have tested negative for COVID-19 and have been trained on how to properly prevent the spread of the virus. Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Miccosukee Resort & Gaming asks any employee or patron who is exhibiting symptoms to please remain at home for the safety of all other employees and guests. Miccosukee Resort & Gaming is very proud to be able to serve its South Florida community once again.
