CNIGA Chairman James Siva Comment on COVID-19

March 15, 2020

California’s tribal governments are working closely with the state and federal governments to ensure the safety of our tribal communities, including our economic development operations. Tribal governments are taking all appropriate necessary action, as the health and safety of our employees, patrons and tribal members is paramount.

Tribal governments are also monitoring their local environment and making decisions that best suit their geographic region.

California’s tribes join the millions of Californians concerned over this pandemic, and are dedicated to implementing best practices to assist in containment. Please go to for recently issued National Indian Gaming Commission guidelines on best practices for tribal operators. The NIGC is the federal regulator for tribal government gaming.
