Wynn/Encore has closed its buffet "until an appropriate time" after a brief attempt to use"food ambassadors" to keep patrons at a distance from the food, but casino seems to be open but with an extremely noticeable bounty of hand sanitizing stations and employees wiping slot machines.

Venetian/Palozzo remaining open with very prominent sanitizing stations. One employee stationed at escalator was observed to spend her entire shift constantly sanitizing the handrail. One patron who bypassed a hand sanitizing station was approached by a bottle-weilding employee.

Mrs Wizard said yesterday the Bellagio was closing, but it looks like she got taken in by another myth.

Casinos of Winnipeg are down to no table games and about 1/3 of the slots. Rumour is tomorrow is the last day they are open for awhile.

This strategy is being used elsewhere. They want to stay open and not have people close together, so every other machine is turned off. The casinos called your mother's

Foxwoods and Mohegan (Connecticut) have announced that table games are closed, although Foxwoods said that table games in one section would remain open. That seems silly: crowd all the table game players still there onto a smaller number of open tables?

Whether it's all bigly over-hyped or a true pandemic, going to a casino today doesn't seem to make much sense. Although seeing people and the way most of them play, it never did. So Mr. and Mrs. Martingale will, for sure, still be there.

Great Cedar and Fox Tower hotels are marked "sold out" at Foxwoods through the end of March. Piquot and Two Trees Inn are still taking reservations. Methinks the "sold out" really means "closed," and I'll bet staff has been let go for now.

Here is what I see in Atlantic City casinos

Men smoking cigars and women smoking cigarettes and blowing smoke halfway across the casino

Considering how the virus is transmitted this seems like just another situation smokers don't care about anyone's health

What the open casinos should at least do is ban smoking and any other air transmitted habits.
