FYI - billryan California, Texas, Arizona & Louisiana are all darker than NV on that map. California, Arizona & Louisiana have already reopened casinos, Texas don't have many but sure which ones they do are reopening. NV casinos are the states life blood and they are still closed. That baffles me.

You are looking at a map of the total cases. California and Texas have many times the population so you are comparing apples and oranges.
California, this week, had more new infections than they did when they shut down. Nevada had been doing well but appears to have taken a step back this week.

It's funny but for twenty-five years, all I heard from APs is to relax, the casinos will still be there tomorrow.

They are silly enough to think keeping people alive is more important than letting gamblers gamble.

They kept liquor stores open because a small percentage of the population is so addicted that they could die or end up in hospitals.
Perhaps next pandemic, we can save a few gambling addicts from their pain.

We are silly enough to know that all businesses are essential and that many of our favorite small joints can't hold out much longer.

We are silly enough to know that video poker lounges put food on the table of the single moms who work there.

We are silly enough to know that when you bankrupt bars and restaurants their service companies and vendors are soon to follow.

We are silly enough to understand that our friends are hurting and they want to go back to work but they can't and no actionable dates are ever given.

We are silly enough to realize that the risks associated with widespread poverty are scarier than risks associated with this disease.

We are silly in knowing that a government trillions in debt cannot provide for 30% - 50% unemployed.

We are very silly these days.

Pretty sure the color codes on that map are based on infections against percentage of population. Louisiana darker than NV similar populations same for AZ and others.

How do you, or anyone, know the potential risks of the disease?

Itís been around for about 3 months. And killed 95,000. Just in this country. Thatís all we know so far.

In the middle of February we were told 15 people had it, and it was going from 15 to 0

Seems to have taken a slight detour on that route

All I know about the disease is from the few folks I know who have had it. I do know the Chinese approach to containment is not right for USA. I know that we should be more creative and nuanced to our approach or we are going to loose many more lives to poverty. I know that the symptoms of a depression are starvation, disease, crime and war. I know that the solutions being slammed down are flirting with a worldwide depression. I know that the next major war will kill a lot more than 95,000.

Reached my posting limit so best wishes to all.

To all my friends all over Nevada from Elko & Ely to Tonnapah & Rachel to LV, Henderson, CAL-NEV-ARI & Laughlin, Reno/Tahoe, Loneliest Road Towns and Jackpot. Hang in there and Good Luck.

NEVADA CASINOS REOPEN JUNE 4!!!!!!!!!!

Finally it is official. See ya'll 11:55 pm on June 3rd!!!!!!!

And when everything reopens up same thing is going to happen. I already see people out there who seem to have given up on the social distancing and masks.

Again, I ask, what can we do that will actually work, and will that fly with the American people?

How long can we actually keep everything shut down for, and will that work(I don't even know what I mean by work)?
I think the only thing that shutdowns can actually accomplish is giving everyone time to help ramp up testing, ventilators, Healthcare facilities to prepare for the inevitable.

I can't imagine any of the leaders are actually going to be honest about that.

People are going to have to weigh the risks versus rewards for themselves and do whatever they can to protect themselves.

5 local Denny's restaurants are going out of business. Saw a longer line of cars at the Wendy's drive thru at 6pm.

Rental-car giant Hertz ó which also operates the Dollar, Thrifty and Firefly brands ó files for bankruptcy after being devastated by the plunge in travel since the pandemic hit

The default map (number of infections) is based on total cases. At time of posting, Louisiana has 36,627 and NV has 7,271, which puts LA in the 5th color and NV in the 3rd color.

You can switch it to the rate (number of infections per 100,000 people) by clicking the header up top, where the two states fall into the same color bands of 3rd and 5th. If you mouseover the states, you can see the exact numbers, which puts NV at a higher rate than AZ, CA, TX, but vastly under LA.

Not speaking on the accuracy, validity, etc. of the info, just stating what's on the site.
