I agree. That is also part of my platform. I would also eliminate welfare, as the UBI would cover necessities. No more incentive to mooch off the government as opposed to working.

Data don't lie. Covid19 is definitely getting worst each day.

53,301 New Cases in USA are popped up in just 1 day. Close all casinos and all non-important businesses again 2nd time to save lives.

Cases in the U.S. Per CDC.gov
Updated July 3, 2020

TOTAL CASES
2,732,531
53,301 New Cases*
TOTAL DEATHS
128,648
624 New Deaths*
*Compared to yesterday's data



According to CDC July 8th update, 8401- deaths 54 years old and younger. 103,825 deaths- 55yrs and older deaths. I live in Upstate New York and everyone is lumped into one group. I was at an Indian Casino outside of Syracuse and 75% of the people there were 65 and older and/or obese. I think we could have, especially in New York, done more to help the elderly.

If the effort was concentrated on nursing homes, sparing resources from the noble tasks of stopping cars with out-of-state plates and going door-to-door looking for tourists, the death toll would have been much less.

In RI, more than 75% of the deaths have been in nursing homes and congregate care facilities. In New York nursing homes were REQUIRED to accept COVID-positive patients released from hospitals.

There was no oversight. How could there be since absolutely no one was allowed inside to see how the residents were being cared for?

If patients in nursing homes survive to tell their stories, the most infuriating part of the pandemic will be how they were treated, and how many of them died because of the negligence of regulators.

Regarding the AF #15 -- Wow. I haven't kept tab for a few years. Well, that is a piece of good news. Thanks for the update. I have a collection of about 1200, mainly late 60's-mid 70's Marvel.

A federal act: if one worker tests positive. The employer is required to pay quarantine paid leave for 14 days for everyone in the same area. Seems, there is a financial motive.

I guess the tricky part is defining "in the same area." That could have wide-ranging variation when you're dealing with enclosed spaces but square casino footage of 100,000 or more. The other thing -- I bet cubic footage doesn't enter into it, but the difference between a Gold Coast 50,000 square feet and a Mandalay Bay 50,000 square feet is enormous because of ceilings. So completely different spaces, but definitions could wind up making all square footage equivalent. This is fascinating.

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.



I agree with Wiz on this observation. Cosmo did not seem to have a very good compliance rate either. Maybe it's the City Center area? In any event, it was very crowded given holiday weekend. My particular observations were more the Caesars properties (Caesars Palace; Paris; Flamingo and Harrahs) ; they all had security at entrances AND elevators reminding folks about masks and handing them out if they forgot theirs. Also I saw properties washing chips in buckets. Not sure how much this helps since no telling how many people have handled but at least at the tables they were enforcing the disinfecting washes between dealers and after patrons left in most cases. What I didn't quite understand was why there were face up double deck games v. player held cards in double deck games at similarly owned Caesars' properties? I thought the face up/no player touch games made more sense.

Atlanta Georgia(the entire city) has now re-closed for Coronavirus.

Literally decided to go back to phase one.

Reopening too early didn't work

Or it worked just fine. It all depends on your agenda.

So, what is the latest on Nevada casinos shutting down? Truth or false rumor?
