DULUTH, MN (6/3/20) -- We're learning the Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in Grand Portage, Minn., is tentatively reopening on June 22nd.

They were closed due to the pandemic like many other casinos in the Northland.

They've added new safety precautions and say this opening date could change.

There's still no opening date set for the Fond-du-Luth and Black Bear Casinos in Duluth and Carlton.

Black Bear Resort Casino and Fond-du-Luth have a tentative date they're monitoring, but at this point, nothing is set in stone.

The casino administration is working with health officials to monitor COVID-19 cases in the surrounding area.

Meanwhile, the Fortune Bay Resort Casino in Tower took to their Facebook page on Monday saying 'WE ARE OPEN'.

And in Wisconsin, Legendary Waters Resort and Casino in Bayfield is currently closed. As well as the Bad River Band's casino in Odanah.
