But the WinStar World Casino Hotel will remain open, according to an online statement.
“While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at WinStar World Casino and Resort, we have determined it is in the best interest of our patrons and employees to temporarily close the casino, all retail stores and all casino restaurants ... to slow the transmission of this virus,” according to a statement posted online Monday afternoon.
Casino officials said Fun Town RV Park at WinStar, WinStar Golf Club and WinStar Golf Academy will stay open. And they said the Legends Bar and Grill will stay open, but service will be limited to 50 guests at a time.
“Thank you very much for your loyalty and your understanding as we navigate this difficult time,” the casino posted.
WinStar already postponed several concerts and performances, including Brad Paisley until Aug. 29 and Adam Sandler to a date yet to be determined.
This comes after several casinos in Las Vegas temporarily closed their doors, also to try to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
Choctaw Casinos & Resorts in Oklahoma, meanwhile, rescheduled a Carrie Underwood concert for Sept. 11 but, as of Monday afternoon, was keeping the casino open, according to a message posted online.
The Choctaw message said officials are reminding employees about washing their hands and are cleaning and are increasing the number of times each day they disinfect casino surfaces from slot machines to table games.
