What are the current rules at table games?

Are there masking rules and are they enforced?

Are the number of available spots at roulette, craps and blackjacks reduced, and are there partitions between individual spots?

Are there arguements or pushback and are the casinos required to enforce the rules or is it hit or miss as to what you find?

Planning on a trip next month and was wondering what I would find.

In Las Vegas masks are still being enforced at every table game that I have played at every casino that I have been in.

Is there a statewide mask mandate in NV? I've noticed huge differences here between states with mandates (MN, WI) and states without them (IA, SD). It was really stark in IA when their mandate expired. Boyd enforced proper masking during the mandate, and then very much started mailing it in when all that was left was their corporate masking requirement.

Visited non-strip casinos last week in Las Vegas (Gold Coast, South Point, Green Valley Ranch, Aliante, Santa Fe Station). Tables and craps with plexi-glass dividers had 4 spots at the tables and on each half of the craps layout. Otherwise, on the few tables without dividers, it was 3 chairs per table. Always needed to wear a mask in the casino - could remove it briefly to sip from a drink. Masking was constantly enforced by both security and by pit staff. Table minimums were up to at least $10 and sometimes $15, even at off-strip properties.

Forgive the slight hijack, but my favoured ONLINE casinos have the dealers wearing masks, even where they are in one table studios.
Amused me. Like one UK company mandated masks on zoom calls.
But they don't tell me off through the screen.
:o)
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

This is basically standard protocol all over Nevada. On the strip table minimums for most games are in the $15-25 range and many are higher on weekends.

That is just too funny. Complete lunacy if you ask me.

So there are some casinos without the plexiglass dividers?

How about cleaning protocols?

Some casinos I know do a wipedown whenever the person at the spot changes. If you have them mark your spot with a plastic chip so as to go the men's room the spot gets cleaned before someone "borrows" your spot, and then another wipedown when you return and re-claim your seat.

Other places never do a wipedown at all, under the same set of "guidance."

Just interested in knowing how much variance there is. Inconsistency seems to be the rule where I have been.

Complete lunacy for requiring masks for dealers working next to other dealers and shufflers? I'm glad you weren't in charge of that decision.

When they are by themselves in a studio ≠ next to other dealers.

Horseshoe in Hammond has removed all the table restrictions, but still has mask rules.
