Movie theaters cleared to reopen, social distancing protocols in place
The state is currently at the third stage of its reopening plans. In this stage, movie theaters and live music were given the clearance to resume. In the last phase, phase 4, the stay-at-home orders were lifted, and concert venues are now allowed in the resort and casinos.
The department said tribal casinos worked hand-in-hand with industry regulators in developing their reopening plans. Riverside County Department of Public Health spokesperson Jose Arballo Jr. said the department is unaware of the live music activities of the hotel and casino.
However, they are operating in a reservation land where the power of the department is limited. Recently, San Diego County’s Pala Casino, resort & Spa allowed live bands to perform every night. Other casinos are expected to follow the moves of the resort and casino as government protocols start to loosen.
