“We have not announced any firm dates to open”: Mohegan Sun responds to June 1 reopening report

Coronavirus

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (WTNH) — There are reports Mohegan Sun is planning to partially reopen starting on June 1.

The Day of New London obtained a letter sent to tenants of the casino saying that parts of the casino will reopen to the public on June 1. According to The Day, they include ‘the Casino of the Sky’, some gaming in ‘the Casino of the Earth’, and ‘the Sky Hotel.’

But Mohegan Sun’s chairman said in a statement to News 8: “We have not announced any firm dates to open.”

Governor Lamont says he feels strongly that it’s too early to open the casinos. We also reached out to Foxwoods. No date yet on their reopening, either.

The casino – along with Foxwoods Resort and Casino – closed to the public in March amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mohegan says their decision to stay closed is based on prioritizing the health and safety of their staff and guests.

Mohegan Sun is greatly appreciative of the incredible healthcare, first responders, and frontline workers in our region and beyond during this challenging time.
