TAMA, Iowa — Meskwaki Bingo Casino and Hotel is back open for business, but because the COVID-19 pandemic is still very much in progress, there will be several restrictions to keep in mind when planning your first visit back.

First of all, Meskwaki is requiring every person, whether they be staff or guests, to wear a face mask at all times while on the property. A non-invasive temperature check is also required for everyone before entering.

Meskwaki also reopened as a smoke-free facility, issuing on a complete ban on smoking or vaping in the building.  That said, there are designated smoking areas 50 feet from entrances.

For the first phase of reopening, Meskwaki is also not allowing anyone under the age of 21 to enter the property.  Once those 21 or over get inside, social distancing will be enforced throughout the facility.

Additionally, they've adjusted their business hours to allow for more opportunities for deep cleaning and sanitizing.  Those hours are:

  • Sunday-Thursday: 8 a.m. to midnight
  • Friday-Saturday: 8 a.m. to 2 a.m.
