Grand Casino announced a voluntary, temporary closure of casino operations at Grand Casino Mille Lacs and Grand Casino Hinckley that started at 4 p.m. Monday.

The initial plan is for a 14-day closure, but conditions will be reassessed before a firm reopen date is announced. While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at either property, Grand Casino sees this as a responsible, proactive decision that places the well-being of its associates, guests, and local communities at the forefront.

While the casinos are closing to the public, Grand Casino plans to leverage its resources to continue to serve the community. As a part of Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures’ Adopt-a-School program, the casinos will provide lunch to students in need who attend public schools in Onamia, Isle, Hinckley-Finlayson, McGregor, and Nay Ah Shing lower and upper schools. In addition, the casinos will help the Mille Lacs Band community.
