The casino announced that it will close at midnight Monday until March 31.
But the WinStar World Casino Hotel will remain open, according to an online statement.
“While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at WinStar World Casino and Resort, we have determined it is in the best interest of our patrons and employees to temporarily close the casino, all retail stores and all casino restaurants ... to slow the transmission of this virus,” according to a statement posted online Monday afternoon.
Casino officials said Fun Town RV Park at WinStar, WinStar Golf Club and WinStar Golf Academy will stay open. And they said the Legends Bar and Grill will stay open, but service will be limited to 50 guests at a time.
“Thank you very much for your loyalty and your understanding as we navigate this difficult time,” the casino posted.
WinStar already postponed several concerts and performances, including Brad Paisley until Aug. 29 and Adam Sandler to a date yet to be determined.
This comes after several casinos in Las Vegas temporarily closed their doors, also to try to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
Choctaw Casinos & Resorts in Oklahoma, meanwhile, rescheduled a Carrie Underwood concert for Sept. 11 but, as of Monday afternoon, was keeping the casino open, according to a message posted online.
The Choctaw message said officials are reminding employees about washing their hands and are cleaning and are increasing the number of times each day they disinfect casino surfaces from slot machines to table games.

WinStar World Casino and Resort is an American tribal casino and hotel located in Thackerville, Oklahoma, near the Oklahoma–Texas state line. It is owned and operated by the Chickasaw Nation. The casino opened as the WinStar Casinos in 2004, and was expanded (with a 395-room hotel tower) and renamed WinStar World Casino in 2009; its 370,000 square feet (34,000 m2) of casino floor made it the world's largest casino. In August 2013, WinStar Resorts completed a major expansion project, which added a new 1000-room second hotel tower that was divided into two phases; this also added a new casino that is attached to the tower. As a result of the completion of this expansion, the casino overtook Foxwoods Resort Casino to become the largest casino in the United States and one of the largest in the world based on gaming floor space. WinStar has 8,500 electronic games, a 55-table poker room, 100 total table games, Racer's off-track betting, high limit room, keno, and bingo.
