We are making the safety of our employees and our guests our top priority and are working with industry partners on recommendations for federal intervention that will help ensure our company – and our industry – recover from this crisis and return to providing you with our first class service, entertainment and hospitality as soon as it is safe to do so.
“As the Coronavirus Pandemic continues to grow and our concern for our employees and guests, we have made the difficult decision to suspend operations at Deadwood Mountain Grand for the immediate future,” said Deadwood Mountain Grand General Manger Susan Kightlinger. “I cannot thank our staff enough for their strength and dedication during this increasingly difficult time and look forward to welcoming everyone back when the virus subsides.”
“We are closely monitoring the CDC and Federal Government suggestions concerning the virus and apologize for the disruption,” Kightlinger said.
