We know many of you are eager to visit Treasure Island Resort & Casino and are wondering when we will reopen. We are just as eager to welcome you back and are actively working on a reopening plan that will keep everyone safe and healthy.
While we do not yet have a specific reopening date, we are preparing and getting closer to making that decision. The Stay-at-Home order issued by the Prairie Island Indian Community will expire on Monday, May 18, the same time Minnesota’s order will expire. That is an important first step in reopening Treasure Island Resort & Casino.
Most importantly, we will not reopen until we are sure that the measures we will have in place protect both our guests and our team members. Your health and safety, as well as that of our team members and the Prairie Island Indian Community, remains our top priority.
There will be changes and not all areas of Treasure Island Resort & Casino will reopen at the same time. However, we are confident that we can provide the experience and service you expect, while prioritizing your safety. In case you missed it, our reopening efforts were recently highlighted in a WCCO TV news story.
We miss you greatly and look forward to the moment that we can welcome you back to The Island.

There is no greater priority than the health and safety of our guests, team members and Tribal community which is why, based on updated information regarding COVID-19, we’ve extended the temporary closure of Treasure Island Resort & Casino.
As you know, the situation continues to evolve, and conditions will be reassessed before a reopening date is announced. During this time, team members will be furloughed and medical/dental/vision benefits will remain active. We encourage you to stay home, stay well and join us in doing our part to help limit the exposure of COVID-19.
We will keep you updated through our website, email and social media channels. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. Please stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you back at The Island soon.

Treasure Island Resort & Casino will close temporarily beginning at 9 p.m. on March 17, 2020. The closure is intended to help slow the potential spread of COVID-19 in Minnesota and is expected to last for at least two weeks, after which time the situation will be reevaluated.
We are taking this extraordinary measure to protect the safety and well-being of our guests, team members, and Tribe. Given the latest community mitigation guidance from state and federal health officials, closing Treasure Island is the best course of action.
While we have confidence in our already rigorous cleaning policies and our enhanced mitigation efforts, which included closing large sections of the casino, health officials now say that shutting down gathering spots is what is needed to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Temporarily closing the resort & casino is how we can responsibly help.
During this closure team members will continue to be paid. Health benefits will still be in effect. As we navigate this uncertain period, we will continue to follow appropriate guidance from state and federal health officials. We want to thank our team members, guests and partners for their patience during this challenging time.
