Thunder Valley Casino defends its 6,000-person indoor New Year’s Eve party


#Despite the high-profile headlines generated by a now-canceled #New #Year’s #Eve party at #Graton #Resort and #Casino, two other #Northern #California casinos are going forward with their plans.

The #Sacramento #Bee reports #Cache #Creek #Casino #Resort and #Thunder #Valley #Casino are still planning on throwing indoor #New #Year’s #Eve fetes. The one at #Thunder #Valley is anticipated to see 6,000 guests. #Both casinos will close to the general public and the parties will be invite-only.

“#Cache #Creek #Casino #Resort will become a private venue starting at 12:00 p.m. on #December 31, 2020,” the casino says on its website. “#We will reopen to the public at 6:00 a.m. on #January 1, 2021.”

#Similarly, #Thunder #Valley is closing to the public at 1 p.m. #Thursday and reopening on #Jan. 1 at 6 a.m.

#Casinos located on tribal lands are not obligated to follow state or county COVID rules. #As such, #Gov. #Gavin #Newsom’s orders banning indoor entertainment doesn’t apply to the state’s dozens of tribal casinos. #Most shut down during the early months of the pandemic before reopening at reduced capacity with temperature checks, clear barriers between guests and mask mandates (although drinking, eating and smoking are all allowed indoors).

#Thunder #Valley is located in #Lincoln; #Placer #County currently has a 12.4% test positivity rate. #Cache #Creek is in #Brooks; #Yolo #County is seeing a 12.24% positivity rate over the last seven days.

#Cache #Creek told the #Bee that its public party planned in early #December has been canceled. #Both venues emphasized the private parties represent a fraction of the guests they normally see on #New #Year’s #Eve, although those numbers reflect attendance in a year without a global health crisis.

“Out of an abundance of caution, #Thunder #Valley is closing to the general public on #New #Year’s #Eve and limiting the number of guests that will have access to the casino to 6,000, which is less than 20% of attendance on a typical NYE at #Thunder #Valley,” #Thunder #Valley spokesman #Doug #Elmets told the #Bee. A spokesman for #Cache #Creek told the publication its private party will represent “less than 1% of our pre-COVID occupancy.”

#Graton casino, which was planning on a 4,000-person indoor party reportedly for high-rollers, announced last week it would not be holding the event after all.
