Colorado: BlueWater opens hotel on a limited basis John Gutekunst Parker Pioneer · December 10, 2020 at 9:05 pm The continued phased-in reopening of the BlueWater Resort & Casino continued this past week with a limited reopening of the resort’s hotel. This is the latest phase in the reopening that began in Sept. 14 after the BlueWater was closed for almost six months due to the coronavirus pandemic. The gaming floor was the first thing to reopen. This was followed by the BlueWater Cinemas reopening on weekends. Table games returned Nov. 9, with a limit of just three patrons per table. The BlueWater went back to 24-hour operations Nov. 13. Much of the facility remains closed, including some of the bars and restaurants.
