Ho-Chunk Gaming Wittenberg will be reopening its casino doors Monday, June 29. The new hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to midnight, and Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 2 a.m.

According to General Manager Fletcher Collins, just the casino will reopen with the possibility of bar service, but the hotel and food venues will not be open.

Collins noted that the Nekoosa and Madison properties opened recently with great response, and they are anticipating the same for Wittenberg, Black River Falls and Wisconsin Dells locations, all scheduled to open the same day.

All guests will be required to wear a face cover to enter and must show face prior to entering. Guests, employees and vendors are subject to a mandatory temperature check and must be below 100 degrees. Hand sanitation and cleaning efforts will increase, and the facility will reopen as a nonsmoking/nonvaping environment. There will be designated smoking areas outside of the facility.

Hodazha-maniwinga Pidgeon, senior manager of public relations, explained that safety and COVID-19 training has been available for all returning staff, and that the casino has added plastic partitions and social distancing markings.

The website ho-chunkgaming.com/wittenberg states that all cash vouchers that expired during the closure of the Wittenberg facility will be honored, and that neither shuttle service nor valet service will be offered at this time.

Ho-Chunk Gaming Wittenberg is located at N7198 U.S. Highway 45, Wittenberg.
