The below statement is from Treena Parvello, Director of Public Relations and Communications for the Tohono O'odham Gaming Enterprise:

“Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment Sahuarita, Tucson and West Valley (PHX) are open, with stringent safety protocols. Face coverings are required, temperatures are being measured, and questions are being asked before guests and team members enter the building. In addition, after entering guests will be reminded to wear face coverings and practice social distancing. Clean Teams are deployed specifically to disinfect whenever possible. With the unprecedented pandemic we are constantly monitoring the situation to update and adapt when necessary. These safety measures go above and beyond recommended safety guidelines from the CDC and other health agencies. Desert Diamond Casinos’ priority is safety in efforts to protect guests, team members, and the community.”


ADOT Offices

All Arizona Department of Transportation offices, including the Motor Vehicle Division, now require employees and customers to wear face coverings.

“Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our customers and employees,” ADOT Director John Halikowski said. “COVID-19 is a significant health threat and we are committed to doing everything we can to protect Arizonans, especially those in vulnerable populations.”

Employee face covering requirement starts Monday, June 22.
