Turtle Creek Casino & Hotel and Leelanau Sands Casino & Lodge will open Friday, May 29 at 8am. Officials say there will be several new safety measures, including increased sanitation protocols, health testing measures for guests and employees, and social distancing safeguards. 

Masks will be required of all guests, and smoking will be allowed only in outdoor areas with a COVID-19 reentry procedure required. Temperature screening will be mandatory of all team members and guests prior to entering the property. Anyone with a temperature greater than 100.4 degrees will be asked to return home to recuperate. Plexiglass health shields have been installed in close contacts areas.

Capacities will be limited to 350 guests at one time at Turtle Creek and 125 guests at Leelanau Sands, with entrances monitored and controlled by security staff. One-third of the gaming machines will be active and with seating removed to encourage safe distancing, and a limit of three guests per table game, with every other table open for play.
