I bet they'll all be able to open back up... especially the ones in Vegas.

Maybe the podunk ones in BFE with a bingo hall and 20 slot machines won't be able to make it, but all the "real" casinos will pull through.

If it lasts one more month, probably all of them.

If it lasts 6 more months , maybe a few can’t survive.

Might depend on the fixed costs they continue to incur month to month while having no revenue. And what their overall financial strength was going into this.

My guess is the April 3 date has no meaning at all. They have no idea when they’ll reopen. Maybe they just left the first weekend in April available in case.

The curve in NJ is only getting steeper



Florida's Covid-19 curve is getting steeper also. Today's update indicates 10 percent of those tested in Florida show a positive result. However, only 12K tests have been administered in a state with over 20 million residents. At this time, about 800 await Covid-19 testing in Florida.

IIRC, the Fools Day (or thereabouts) deadline was referenced widely -- not just AC -- because by that time we should have a much better idea of how bad the pandemic effects would be. Some optimists hoped schools could reopen, etc. CDC Director Fauci says 12 to 18 months of pandemic, but I can't imagine a total lock-down for more than a week. In Italy, yes. In America, no. IMHO, America will slog through the pandemic somehow, but it probably won't be pretty.

Maybe this has already been discussed, but it seems like Vegas is in an especially vulnerable situation. In most areas of the country where “non-essential” businesses like restaurants, bars, entertainment venues are closed, this is only part of the economy. But for Vegas that sector is the majority of the economy.
It’s all about making that GTA

POTUS just said he will reopen the economy shortly after 15-day social distancing period ends 3/31.

Make of that what you will...

It makes no sense cause he didn't close the economy to begin with. All the closure orders came from state governors.

I want to say more but don't want to become too political. Let's say I don't see how he can order opening when he never ordered closing

I live in Michigan. We have an stay at home order starting tonight until April 13th.

I’d be interested to know how this March 31st idea would work here...

The number of deaths reported in many states exceeds the number of people who are classified as recovered. I'm not sure what to make of that.

One cable network is proclaiming the anti-malaria drug as a game changer and another is reporting three people died overnite from overdosing on it. Some talking head from France says the difference between an effective dose and a lethal one is minute.
I imagine a 130 pound person will need a different dose than a 78 pound one or a 250 pounder.



A friend (also an anesthesiologist) went and bought a bunch of the anti-malarial. Wife and I spoke about it and decided against. Right after that decision I received a lengthy "Executive Order" from the governor stating it is basically illegal to get the chloroquin unless you are officially enrolled in a state approved trial. I spoke to my Infectious Disease Doctor friend (coincidentally he now lives and practices in Las Vegas) and he says the chloroquin story is not based on any real data. He is prescribing the antiviral, whose name I now forget) instead.
Wife (dentist) SPECIFICALLY mentioned the risk of overdosing for this new 'indication'. I guess she was right.

ZERO chance. How about that? Some areas will just be BEGINNING the worst of it around then.
