— The new emergency order that went into effect on Wednesday does include closing casinos, but a few in west Michigan are still operating. Gun Lake Casino is located on a federal reservation, and the Gun Lake Tribe is not required to follow orders put in place by the state, only the federal government. Therefore, the casino said after evaluating their safety measures, they feel it is safe to remain open. "Back in March, we were the first tribal casino in the area, if not the country to voluntarily close our doors understanding the severity of this," said Gun Lake Casino's Assistant General Manager Carter Pavey. Gun Lake Casino in Wayland is located on Sovereign Land, which means they're only subject to federal orders. Despite the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services orders, they remained open as of Wednesday.
