The St. Croix Casino in Turtle Lake, Wisconsin, has closed for about a month. 

An announcement on the casino's website says it will temporarily close at 2 a.m. on Nov. 10, for 30 days, but an exact re-opening date will be announced later. 

"The St. Croix Chippewa of Wisconsin have decided that this temporary closure is necessary for the safety and wellbeing of our guests, team members and our communities to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus," the announcement says.

This comes as COVID-19 cases have been surging in Wisconsin and much of the Midwest. Wisconsin's seven-day average of new cases is "well over" 5,000, health officials said Monday.

The St. Croix casinos in Hertel and Danbury are still open, according to the casinos' website. 

The casino in Turtle Lake is about 30 minutes east of Taylors Falls, Minnesota.
