October 28, 2021
TOWAOC, Colo. (October 26, 2021) – After the successful implementation of its vaccine mandate, executives at Ute Mountain Casino Hotel reported that 98% of its employees are now vaccinated with at least the first or second shot, underscoring the property and tribal community's commitment to keeping employees and guests healthy and safe while providing a comfortable, clean environment.
"This is a sought-after milestone for Ute Mountain Casino Hotel as we continue to work together as an organization and a community to navigate our way through the pandemic," said Rick Scheer, General Manager. "The dedication and willingness of our employees to step up and receive the vaccine has made this effort highly successful and we couldn't be more grateful."
At the height of the pandemic and throughout, Ute Mountain Casino closely followed federal/state health and safety recommendations, temporarily shuttered, and reopened with expanded COVID-19 and sanitation policies that included comprehensive employee training programs, thermal cameras, social distancing, mask requirements and a non-smoking policy as part of its mitigation efforts.
"The vaccine is just another way for us to do our part to help protect ourselves, fight against COVID-19 and hopefully get closer to eradicating it so that we all can move forward," said Scheer. "We will continue to align and comply with tribal, federal and state guidelines to ensure our community's safety and overall well-being."
