Rumors are flying (Vital Vegas and some casino employee) that at least some Vegas casinos will be shutting down again just after the 4th of July weekend. The rumors are the shutdown will be lead by Venetian and Caesars properties fueled by pressure and lawsuits filed by the culinary union concerning unsafe working conditions.

Vital Vegas website describes this as a "voluntary" shutdown that would last 7-10 days. Neither the voluntary part with some casinos closing while others stay open, nor the 7-10 day period makes any sense to me,

If this comes about, it will neither be voluntary, nor for 7-10 days in my opinion. As I have stated here in several different threads, I was excited to get back to the casinos and my "casino life" when they re-opened on June 4, but it quickly became apparent to me that the opening was not being done responsibly. Customers were a big part of that, refusing to wear masks. The Governor allowed casinos to re-open, with certain conditions, but that is not what the people heard. People heard "back to normal". So if there is a second shutdown, customers have only themselves to blame.

And IMO, if there is a second shutdown, it will be for another good long while. Casinos and restaurants and bars which are a big part of casino businesses really are about the last businesses that should be open. We'll see what happens.

So I canít keep my mouth shut right now but my girlfriend continually asks me when this will be over but also simultaneously is saying what I say is a conspiracy theory, but this is not a temporary thing. This is now a continuous cycle of being in colors. You will always be in green, but will always be able to be downgraded when itís convenient.

Once you accepted the green status or anything in this ďtimeĒ you have accepted the legal ramifications which come with it.

You guys can keep talking about this but itís moot as of this point. Itís cyclical and will continue to happen after this point in time for all of time.

Itís you who chooses to be free though.

Or you could just wait for the medical treatment that eliminates Covid-19 as a threat.

The same workers who complain about having to work at our restaurants didnt want to wear our supplied face masks and spray down surfaces.

That original 'lockdown' was not good enough, I want to almost say it was a waste of time, but it saved some lives so I can't really say that, but for lack of better words, it was a waste of time considering about 50% of the businesses were still open , and they didn't have strict social distancing and face mask policies for the places that were open. I'm not sure how much time it would have taken or exactly what extreme measures we would have had to take in order to make a huge difference. It just seemed obvious that we were going to be back in the same situation we were before the lockdown once everything opened up again.

With demand down, I would expect only small to medium size casinos to stay open. No restaurants; with server bar, free sodas, some snacks. I'd probably get a couple slices of pizza at the gas station across the street.

All Casinos really have to do is enforce Social Distancing, make lots of hand sanitizer available, make everyone wear face masks, and if you are not wearing the face mask except for eating or drinking, you are told to leave The Casino. There will be people who really shouldn't be wearing masks(People with Asthma in particular) but in that case they most likely will not be able to enter The Casino in the first place.

South korea never closed any restaurants. Most customers voluntarily chose to eat at home. Now they are quarantining all in bound passengers. If you dont own a permanent home self quarantine. They require you stay in a govt facility for 14 days.

South korea has 95-99% face mask compliance

Wuhan was far more stricter than probably most countries would tolerate. Most ppl were not allowed to drive their cars unless they had an exemption. Wuhan was quarantined. people were not allowed to leave the city. Delivery trucks could not enter wuhan. Men on towers patrolled the perimeter. Restaurants were closed
