Grand Portage Lodge & Casino Reopening Plans
At Grand Portage Lodge & Casino, the health and safety of our guests, employees and community is our highest priority. Our recent closure has been in close alignment with the COVID-19 response from Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and Minnesota health departments. While the reopening of the Canadian border has been delayed, we will be reopening one week later than originally planned. Our new reopening date will be Monday, June 29, 2020. In these days of uncertainty, we must remain flexible and fluid with the ability to adjust to change.
As we plan the gradual process of reopening our economy and returning employees to work, we have taken measures to combat the potential impact on our resort and facilities.
“We have missed hosting our guests and we look forward to when we can begin creating new memories together”, said Beth Drost, RTC Chairwoman. “Things will be a little different when we reopen, with new measures in place to ensure that our guests and employees remain safe.”
In addition to our usual high standards of cleanliness, during the closure, the property has been thoroughly deep-cleaned and sanitized, and enhanced health and safety plans have been developed with guidance from public health officials.
