The Skagit’s Health & Sanitation Guidelines
The Skagit Casino Resort is setting a new standard of entertainment with enhanced safety and cleaning measures. Here’s a look at some of the changes that we’ve implemented in order to make sure that our resort meets or exceeds CDC guidelines.
The Skagit Casino Resort is now a non-smoking casino floor.
The Winner’s Lounge has been designated as the only players’ smoking area in the casino. The doors will remain closed to prevent smoke from entering the casino floor, and we have re-engineered the ventilation system.
When You Arrive…
Accessing The Casino
Access to the casino will be restricted to the front main entrance, allowing our Security team to conduct non-invasive temperature checks, utilizing non-touch thermometer devices, and enforce the use of masks before admittance. Guests confirmed to have a temperature over 100°F will not be permitted to enter and will be welcomed back at a later time. Guests enter at their own risk.
Guests will be asked to exit the casino using our northern set of doors to ensure ample room at the main entrance for screening and to allow security to moderate the number of patrons in the building.
The Pacific Showroom
Concerts in The Pacific Showroom are being postponed at this time.
The Winner’s Lounge
The Skagit Winner’s Lounge has been designated as the only players’ smoking area in the casino. The doors to The Winner’s Lounge will remain closed to prevent smoke from entering the casino floor, and we have re-engineered the ventilation system.
Our Encore Restaurant will remain closed indefinitely.
The Skagit Hotel and The Skagit Ridge Hotel
The Skagit Hotel will re-open in the near future, please check back for updates! The Skagit Ridge Hotel will remain closed until further notice.

Modified Operating Hours
Operating hours for The Skagit Casino Resort have been modified to allow for a property wide deep cleaning every night.

Guests and employees shall practice physical distancing by standing a minimum of 6’ apart from one another. We will be operating at a reduced guest capacity limit to allow for optimal social distancing. Restaurants and bars have reduced seating capacities to allow for a minimum of six feet between each seated group/party of guests. Some slot machines have been disabled with the chairs removed to allow for physical separation between guests, and plexiglass partitions have been installed between our most popular games. Table games will remain closed until further notice. Tobacco Shop entry is restricted to only one guest at a time.
Our Express Eats dining venue has been relocated to previous home of The Market Buffet, allowing for more room for social distancing. We are currently working on a long-term design which will allow us to feature a more extended menu selection; coming this fall.
Self Serve Beverage Stations
Self-service beverage stations will remain open. Complimentary soft drinks and coffee will be provided by beverage servers on the casino floor.
We have installed plexiglass partitions at all point of sale locations, including the gas station, as well as between designated slot machines.
Over 100+ Hand sanitizer dispensers have been installed throughout the casino, hotel public areas, hotel corridors, reception areas, meeting rooms, restaurant entrances, and restroom entrances.
Skagit Valley Casino Resort has implemented both General and Specific Covid-19 Workplace Protocols (CWPPs) for its operations. The CWPPs are based upon the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Washington State Governor’s Office, and Washington State Department of Health. Further, our entire EVS team have received Certificate of Completions for numerous Coronavirus courses, courtesy of Casino Essentials.
