A Message From Mohegan Leadership
First, we hope that you and your families are safe and well. The past few months have presented each of us with hardships that seemed unfathomable just a short time ago. But these hardships have also presented us with an opportunity to come together as one community. It has also made us appreciate life’s simple moments. While no one knows how long it will take for things to get back to ‘normal,’ we are here, prepared and ready to welcome you back.
Our team has tirelessly been working around the clock to develop and implement first-in-class standards and safety measures consistent with or exceeding guidelines by state and federal officials. These measures, which you will find below, have been endorsed by our Chief Medical Director and Tribal Health Department. We will continue to moderate and make changes as necessary to our procedures based off their guidance to ensure the highest level of safety for our guests and team members. This guidance and level of standards will be implemented at all seven resort destinations in North America operated and managed by Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, some of which have already begun to reopen.
As we ramp up our next phase of reopening, which includes various openings of our dining, hotel, retail and other popular venues, we will continue to ensure we are responsible and appropriate with our approach. While we understand that the continued closure of some of these experiences may be inconvenient, we look forward to reopening them when the time is right. Our number one priority is the safety and well-being of all guests visiting Mohegan Sun as well as the health of all our passionate and dedicated team members.
We are thankful for our 6,500 team members, who are an extension of our Mohegan family, for their tireless efforts today and every day. We appreciate your continued loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back soon.
From the Mohegan Tribe, Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment and Mohegan Sun family, muykuhkukw qa wuyámukw (Be strong and be well).
