For Immediate Release

June 25, 2020


WILLITS, CA – The “I”s have been dotted and the “T”s have been crossed on an extensive checklist of new precautions and protocols to protect the health and welfare of guests and employees of Sherwood Valley Casino. The Sherwood Valley Band of Pomo Indians announced today that with great anticipation Sherwood Valley Casino will be re-opening to the public at 12 p.m. (Noon) on Friday, June 26th, 2020.

According to Michael J. Broderick, General Manager of the small, Northern California Casino; “We have made some important changes as part of our enhanced health and safety plan. After we announced our originally planned reopening for the 17th of June, we realized that we had a lot more to do in order to be 100% confident that our valued customers and dedicated Team Members would be safe, so we decided to push the date back 12 more days. I can finally say we are ready, and from the wonderful feedback we have been getting from our loyal customers, they are too! We look forward to seeing them tomorrow at noon!” he remarked.  

According to the casino management team, things will look and be a little different at the casino for a while and it will be limited in some of the services, number of people allowed in the facility, and the number of games available. In addition, there will be several steps that guests and Team Members will have to do before entering the casino or administrative offices, and these steps will be clearly advertised and explained before the re-opening and at the door. The phased reopening and health and safety protocols follow the guidance of public health professionals, industry experts, the casino management team, and their Tribal Council.


The team at Sherwood Valley Casino has been and continues to be committed to the safety and well-being of the community, their customers, and their team members and families. They appreciate the continued patience, support and trust from our friends and neighbors while they navigated this pandemic.
