I saw a video of the Wynn just after the opening, and it looked like all of the machines were turned on. Did anybody try to enforce "every other machine is closed," either on the Strip or anywhere else (downtown, Boulder, Henderson, out west)?



Of the two places I played machines, one had removed every other chair, but the machines seemed to be operational, although I didn't check by standing and playing. The other property had every other machine turned off.

I did collect free play from a third property so I briefly played a machine, but didn't take notice.

Every place that I have been so far has about every other machine out of service or turned off.

It seemed like "guidelines" meant nothing. The mentality seemed to be things are back to normal, back to the way they were before covid-19... I don't see how this doesn't lead to a spike in cases and deaths in the coming weeks... Don't want to get ahead of things but it will be interesting to see what happens if there is a noticeable increase in cases. ...they are not going to shut down again.



All of the above, I believe, applies to everywhere, not just casinos, not just Las Vegas.

My anecdotal observations just going around my area are that folks are not bothering with the "guidance" and places of business are no longer bothering with the "regulations."

Home Depot is required to monitor the number of people inside. Initially they had a person on the only entrance with a phone keeping people out until other people at all the exits keeping track of them as they left. But today all doors are open for entrance or exit, nobody at any doors tracking anything. The regulations are very specific, and they have not changed. Volume of business seemed no different today than last week.

Two weeks ago the car wash had signs everywhere saying you had to wear a mask everywhere on the property. Alternating spots where blocked where the vacuums were. Today, no signs. Few people wearing masks.

In general, I see fewer and fewer people wearing masks. Kids on bikes riding through my neighborhood, clearly not from the same household. I see people out on boats (I live on a lake). Pontoon boats with more than five people. No masks.

I have not noticed any six foot marks on the sidewalks where the peaceful demonstrators can maintain social distance as they are protesting. Many of them are maskless, as are a fair percentage of police. Not universally on either side, but noticeable. If there's a spike, will it have started there? Would anyone be stupid enough to suggest that it did?

In my state, gatherings of more than five people are against the law. The fine for a single violation is $500. That requirement has been in place for a couple of months now. A press conference of state legislators was filmed yesterday. Ten politicians doing what they always do - get as close to the microphone and television camera as possible, clustered together around a podium. Not a mask to be seen.

The guidance and regulations will be with us for a while, but they'll matter a little less every day.

At the same time, every day the statistics on infections and deaths, statewide, are released. Every day the seven-day average of infections and death drop, while average mask use and social distancing drop as well (no official measure on compliance - just my guess).

Requiring masks here in PA unless you are smoking, eating, or drinking. If I go I will hold a drink at all times so I do not have to wear one.



Any word on when PA casinos will start re-opening? Their websites haven't been updated in over a month and no news outlets give any pertinent details.

I would've have thought Mohegan Sun Poconos would be exempt from state law and could open like Mohegan CT?

I have to ask, why would anyone wear a mask out on a pontoon boat. Or out on any boat for that matter?

What is happening is people are seeing the rules were more "feel good" than effective. They are done with it all. The crisis, to whatever extent there was one, is far along the decline. The "models" were way off on the high side. 25% of the deaths are in nursing homes. Most people probably accept death counts were inflated in general.

Lets hope people keep ignoring the places that are holding on to these rules.

I'm sorry, but deaths from COVID-19 will be heading towards the multi-millions until there is a vaccine, which could be invented never. Social distancing, lockdowns, and wearing masks are what has kept the death toll to only 100K in 3 months instead of 100 times that.

No proof of that. We did it and had deaths. To say "100Xs" that is silly.

The virus is already showing signs of weakening.

Stay home if you like, most of us want a normal life back. And before you say it, look at how many people are at openings anywhere. People clearly do not want to hole up at home.

The virus is not over, has not been declared over, and will not be over this year. If you want life as normal, hospitals will quickly shutdown instead of society. Cases and deaths will go up 10 fold every week or two. It only takes 2-3 months for this virus to get around to everybody. There is no herd immunity. You'll be dragging dead people out to the street for pickup like China did in late January. A lockdown takes over a month to bring the curve back down. This is a viral war. You can only take little steps against it. Most states that have reopened up are seeing the number of new cases each day skyrocket and noticing their hospital capacity is about to overflow. You know what happens in the late stages of this outbreak? Tens of millions of new cases each week, 100's of thousands of deaths every day.

Gov. Cuomo is happy COVID-19 deaths are down 95% per day because of the lockdown, social distancing, and wearing masks. Daily deaths have gone down from 800 a day 8 weeks ago to 42 a day now.

10-fold every week or two? Please!

Your fear-mongering is what we heard in March and IT NEVER HAPPENED!

Please cite cases of states opening and hospitals overflowing. Because it has not made the news, and the media would surely have led with that kind of story.

100's of 1000s of deaths per day? So you are trying to convince me that we will have more deaths in one day than we have had in the three months since it hit the USA?

Seriously, turn off the news. Live your life. Leave the house. You have ODed on virus news and propaganda.

As to 10-fold every week or two:

1
10
100
1000
10000
100000
1000000
10,000,000
100,000,000
1,000,000,000 (Every man, woman, and child in the USA has caught it 3 times!)
10,000,000,000 (GAME OVER--more than all of the planet infected)

So you are claiming in 11-22 weeks, every man, woman, and child on the planet will have it? Are you listening to yourself? If this was even remotely real it would have gotten to half the world before we could even react.
