Read the guidelines. They seem pretty cut and dry.
Has Nevada had 14 days of new cases declining?
Have new patients dropped for 14 days in a row?
Have deaths ?
I don't know about Nevada, but Arizona had 280 new cases, or about 35 per million.
Guidelines call for one new case per million.

Expecting to be able to safely open the casinos in the next few weeks is unrealistic. Opening them while the North East and the West Coast are still locked down, along with no foreign tourist, is economic madness.


Are you seriously suggesting that starting in day 1....we have 26 new cases

Day 2....23
Day 3....20
Day 4....18
Day 5....12
Day 6....9

Day 7....18

That we start over again from day 1?

If so, this city will never open. Forget weeks.

I'm not suggesting anything. I'm informing you what the guidelines are that VP Pence's Task Force have set.
I don't agree with all of them, but these are the guidelines they arrived at.

Well...I read them and the guidelines are ambiguous. Terms like "downward" can mean different things to different people. This tells me "we the people" will have no informative or concrete answers as to what constitutes opening.

Is one up day in 14 still considered downward. How about 2 upward in 14? 3 in 14?

As I suspected....nothing that a person can hold the powers that be accountable. Ambiguity allows for interpretation.

What could downward mean to different people?

The question isn't just "When will casinos open?" It is "When will visitors return?"

I think that from a tourism point of view, the New York City area will be like a leper colony for over a year - nobody will want to go there. Not until >50% of the US population has taken a covid-19 vaccine.

And a significant slice of the US population will not want to plan vacations and leisure time in places like Las Vegas where crowds or crowded conditions can be expected. Pre- vaccine, plan on a Vegas with:
-No shows.
- No conventions
- No conferences
- No obese visitors.
- No visitors 60 or older.
- Limited foreign visitors (? I think.)

And, if Vegas opens up and gets a covid-19 flare-up as a result, then that city will become a "leper colony" in the public perception.
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

Well, Right now you must be saying "I knew it" since all the news about that from yesterday. But regards your question, I heard Las Vegas is re open soon but with some restrictions, there will be missing machines to make more space between customers and some activities won't be available. It'll be a slow opening I guess

If you really want to be honest about this whole thing....itís likely unworkable until a vaccine arrives.

Psychologically, a lot of people are going to be on pins and needles if someone coughs in their direction, smokes in their direction, stands too close.

Itís a fear factor. The fear alone will drive business into the gutter.

there was far more coronavirus particles in the atmosphere between feb 15 and march 15, before the shutdowns, when people were still beginning to see the initial affects of all the overseas visitors til they all went back to their home countries in china italy and europe. and vegas didnt overrun the hospitals or have a large death toll then. why would it happen when they reopen, when people will be much more cautious and stringent practices put into place by the casinos, with only about 1 10th of the virus still floating around? i dont think there will be any worries. if the virus was as bad as people fear, vegas wouldve been hit as hard as NYC was.
