SAN DIEGO–The Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation said Wednesday that the temporary closure of Sycuan Casino Resort will be extended until further notice as there are too many unknowns to confidently provide a date.
Sycuan Team Members will continue to receive their full benefits package through at least April 30. Those team members who were still employed when the full closure was announced, will receive pay through April 3. Beyond that date, team members will be able to use their PTO balances and/or apply for unemployment benefits. Guests will also receive full refunds for any hotel reservations booked during this extended period.
“While we originally indicated this was to last until March 31, it has become clear that is not possible,” said Cody J. Martinez, Chairman, Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation. “We are as anxious as everyone to reopen and get back to normal. We are paying close attention to what our public health professionals are saying, the actions of our elected leaders and the decisions of others who own businesses. At this point, the businesses that are closed will remain closed until it is clear from a public health and safety perspective that the regional restrictions in place will be lifted. We are all in this together and we will get through this together and hopefully that is very soon. We appreciate and value the hard work and dedication from our team members and know and believe that the future is bright for Sycuan.”
