The Tohono O’odham Nation says it’s less than two weeks away from reopening its casino near Glendale.

The tribe says its three southern Arizona casinos and its Desert Diamond facility in the West Valley will all reopen at 1 p.m. on June 5.

The reopenings are to happen in phases and not all services will be available right away. The tribe says casino capacity will be reduced to allow for social distancing. 
Operating hours will also be limited, so crews have time to clean.

People wanting to go inside casinos run by the Tohono O’odham Nation will have their temperature taken, be given masks and required to wear them.
