Detroit casinos will remain closed through May 28th after Governor Gretchen Whitmer extended the previous order limiting places of public accommodation.  

"Although we are beginning to see the curve flatten, we are not out of the woods yet. We must all continue to be diligent, observe social distancing and limit in-person interactions and services to slow the spread of COVID-19," said Governor Whitmer.

Governor Whitmer signed Executive Order 2020-69 yesterday, ordering the Detroit casinos, racetracks, and millionaire parties to remain closed. The tribal casinos in the State have chosen to follow the Governor's previous directives, so it is likely that they will be closed continue to be closed as well. 

"Michigan now has more than 40,000 cases of COVID-19. The virus has killed more Michiganders than we lost during the Vietnam War," said Governor Whitmer. "Extending this order is vital to the health and safety of every Michigander. If we work together and do our part, we can help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and save lives."
