We are going to have to get back to business soon enough. The health ramifications just based on a complete economic shutdown will begin to surpass the health ramifications from the virus as the time length increases.

Wynn and Stations have put out notice they will re-open May 1.



Wow. And they did that with absolutely no knowledge of whatís going to really happen.

Maybe the objective is to try and get people to book early May rooms, so that if by some miracle this is all resolved in 35 days, guests will be committed to going there

That's bold. I'd also take the "no" on it actually happening. I know things are desperate for Stations, but they're going to waste money preparing to open when they can't...



I would bet that 90%, if not all casinos will be open by May 1st.

Right in the midst of what might be the worst or near worst of the outbreak, letís squeeze a bunch of people together at roullete and blackjack tables and pass chips around

That works for me. People can always have more kids to repopulate the country.

We are nowhere near the top of the curve. Things will get much worse before they get better. And there's no chance that Sisolak will risk allowing a second spike.

The risk is that if we release the current shutdown too soon, we'll create a second spike in cases & need to shut things down again. 3 months now is less outage than 2 months now, 1 month back, 2 months off again, 1 month back....

How do you properly practice social distancing and some of the other health guidelines regarding this virus, in places like restaurants, bars, casinos, sporting event crowds , concerts, hair salons, nail salons.. business whose entire purpose revolves around people being near people ?

Thereís no easy answer. My point stands....we are going to have to get back to business EVEN with health concerns. Where is the proper point to open full bore? No one can answer that question and I guarantee it runs the gamut anyway. Iíve heard some say 9 months. Others much more optimistic. The reality is a recurrence of outbreak is probably a given regardless of timeline. Until a vaccine is approved, there WILL be a reoccurrence of cases.

As I stated, the health, welfare (AND yes, deaths) by a complete, extended shut down will begin to eclipse the virus ramifications and or worries.

Thereís no playbook here. Itís essentially all guesswork without a real knowledge of ďbest methodĒ.

Truth is...there likely WILL be recurrence regardless how long we shut the country down. We need a vaccine. That could be years off.

The economic calamity and deaths will soar under a financial shutdown. 90% of the population doesnít have the reserves to stand down. As the date moves....and moves, the impact of the virus and resulting shutdown will begin to merge in terms of lethality.
