Anyone notice any disinfecting of machines and table games areas whenever a player leaves? Masks and SD seems to be enforced, but the disinfecting has been neglected at the casino I visit on a daily basis.

The casino floor at Red Rock today had decent compliance with masks. The ONLY ones flaunting the rule are smokers. I guess a cigar or cigarette in your hand, lit or unlit, gives you carte blanche to have the mask hang off your ear for the entire time you are in the casino.



How does that work in Vegas?

In AC masks must be worn at all time and all consumption (smoking, food, drinking, etc..) are prohibited to ensure mask compliance.


In Vegas are you exempt from wearing a mask if smoking or drinking?

I would assume the same it works here in IL. If you are in a restaurant you can be without a mask a while you sit at your table but you must put it on in order to go to the bathroom. I would think this may be stricter at say a blackjack table where I would assume one would have to wear one unless taking a sip from their drink or a drag from their cig although all the IL casinos are smokefree

So if you see somebody come by and spray the machine and wipe it with a cloth how long would you wait till you used that machine? Right away 1 minute 5 minutes 10 minutes >? Would you use it at all?

If they are going from machine to machine using the same cloth to wipe the machine down they are likely spreading more germs then killing .... a new paper towel should be used to avoid such spread and tossed away after each machine.

Now how long should you wait? That depends on what they are spraying on the machine .... is it just water ?

The list of products that will kill the virus is pretty long but some do it rather quickly ( and cost a lot of money) others take much longer and accordingly are cheaper ..... which do you think those casinos would be using>? If you see somebody spraying machines see if they are wearing rubber gloves as the MSDS for products will likely advise them to wear them for their safety

Oxivir is a hospital grade germ killer cleaner Virex 256 also does the same but Oxivir claims 1 to 5 minutes of area left wet after spraying Virex 256 says leave area wet for 10 minutes

watching the news and they show gym equipment being sprayed down and wiped after use .... no gloves on and using the same rag on all the different pieces of equipment guessing the cleaning disinfecting agent being used is a safe product like water ..... a petri dish full of spots came to mind

I was at the Aria on Saturday. The policy seemed to be that masks were required, but they didn't have to be worn. Many people wore them like necklaces because they were smoking, talking, or perhaps just refused to cover up mouth.

Effectively you are. Iím told that people in the sports book with a drink while seated do not have to wear a mask but you must wear a mask when placing a bet.

The rule on the casino floor is a joke. Everyone must wear a mask...but if you are a chain smoker, you do not have to wear a mask. The casino will tell you thatís not the intent of the rules but that is exactly what has happened. The ones infecting the air with respiratory smoke are effectively exempt from wearing a mask. They are not pulling down, puffing, and pulling up. Ever.

The only good thing Red Rock did is you cannot smoke at the tables....but can smoke like a chimney at the slots with no mask. At least people drinking were taking a sip and pulling up their mask. Every smoker I saw either had the mask on their ear or drawn down like a chin strap for the entire time I saw them. I guess a pack of cigs on the slot or anything in their fingers exempts them from mask wearing.

Jeez...what a joke. The people potentially spreading bad respiratory air are exempt from wearing a mask. Canít make this s**t up.

If it isn't too much trouble, you should cash in your chips if the casino is open, now. If that means driving more than a couple hundred miles, you may have to wait a few years for the bankruptcy proceedings of the casinos in question.
