WORLEY, Idaho – Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel will be temporarily closed as a precautionary measure to help minimize the spread of coronavirus.

According to a release, there have been no reported cases of coronavirus at the casino.

The closure will begin on Friday at noon and will last for at least 14 days. During the closure, all bus services to the casino property in Worley will be discontinued.

All Coeur d’Alene Casino employees will continue to receive their wages and benefits.
