Good reason would be smokers directing their smoke up and out, broadcasting all particles including Covid 19. What a great time to totally eliminate smoking, including pot, in ALL enclosed spaces!




You do realize airborne diseases do not travel in smoke?

Also, COVID-19 is not an airborne disease (which is one of many reasons people wearing masks are silly).

Smoking is a traditional part of the casino experience.

Smoking is harmful to all. Second hand smoke needs to be stripped from the casino experience!

It is spread through direct or indirect means (IE environmental Surfaces, IE chips....)

But mostly through the air

I get it, you have an agenda.

We should be allowed gloves to handle chips, I asked and so far no. (Boyd property)

As are cheques.

If they didn't use them, I wouldn't play.

From Fox and CDC:
Much of COVID-19 remains a mystery. Like other coronaviruses, it's known to spread from close person-to-person contact through respiratory droplets, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

But can you catch coronavirus from surfaces?

The CDC's website says surfaces can be contaminated with COVID-19. The website adds, though, that there are no known cases that started in that manner.

See above, so far, you are wrong.

I was being ironic.

Smoking and chips are both unhealthy archaic aspects of casinos that linger on.

You are right, I stand corrected, there is airborne transmission of COVID-19.

However, the point here is related to environmental surfaces. Chips are just gross and a great way to spread disease.

I will gladly take and dispose of all the chips you are afraid to handle. No charge. You can go play the nice clean slots.
