Great news! Harrah's Cherokee and Harrah's Cherokee Valley River have announced a gradual reopening of both properties starting Monday, May 18th by invitation only.
Officials said both casinos will have extensive health and safety precautions in place for the safety of employees and guests.
Officials said areas such as the gaming floor, hotel and some restaurants, where social distancing can be practiced will be the first to open, with significant limitations on occupancy. Areas where social distancing is not possible, such as the spa, valet, poker tables, buffet, and concert venue, will remain close until deemed safe to reopen.
Before their shifts, the casino said all employees will complete a screening, which will include a questionnaire and temperature check. They will also be required to wear a face mask while on duty.
We'll continue posting more updates regarding invitations, and safety precautions on our Facebook page and website.
