Last updated: April 5, 2021

The Safest Casino on Earth is open 24 hours a day!  Barona continues to practice safety protocols to make sure you can feel safer at Barona than anywhere else.  With the health and safety of our players and staff as our top priority, we have implemented the following health and safety measures and continually look for ways to keep you safe at the Safest Casino on Earth! Thank you for being a part of the Barona Family. We look forward to seeing you again.

Your Safety Is Our First Priority

Barona’s robust cleaning protocols have always been the highest in the industry to ensure you’re playing in the cleanest casino environment. With the below measures we are safe to stay open and the casino continues to operate 24 hours a day/7 days a week. If circumstances change we will take the necessary precautions.

  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Don’t touch your face.
  • Wear a face mask covering your nose and mouth or a shield at all times.
    • For everyone’s safety, Barona does not permit face masks with breathing valves (also known as valve masks or vented masks) for either players or staff members. Vented masks protect their owners from breathing in someone else’s airborne respiratory droplets but the valve lets the wearers exhale their own respiratory droplets onto others.
    • For your continued safety, Barona no longer permits gaiters or bandannas on property.
  • Maintain a social distance of 6 feet.
  • Don’t enter if you have a fever or cough.
