Arizona is now the hottest spot in the world for CV19, according to a Harvard specialist, although I must say I don't understand what he is basing this on. In any event, our Gov. was supposed to make an announcement yesterday that masks were mandatory whenever you were outside, but his re-election campaign balked at it. Instead, he punted the ball and rescinded the part of his order where local authorities couldn't set their own rules. Now it is up to the local mayor or county executive to decide to make masks mandatory.
Before his press conference was over, the Mayor of Bisbee posted his new orders on facebook. Masks are now mandatory and business owners are responsible for seeing that no one maskless is served. Individuals who don't wear masks can be fined, but the businesses that permit maskless transactions face the loss of their town business permits.
The town is hoping for a huge weekend, as Pride Fest or whatever it is called was originally scheduled. It's officially canceled, and all public events are postponed, but there is hope that thousands or tens of thousands will still come for the weekend. Let's see how Social Distancing works.

Some of the casino that had initially bumped up table minimums a bit are already back to their normal lower limits. Just not many players, especially at the local type casinos.



I wondered if the $25-$50 minimum for every BJ table was to recoup lost revenue or to weed out the low roll bettors and have them play for less time?

I realize it's a case of supply and demand, where they can stipulate just about ANY minimum they want for table games and people will play due to not having the ability to play for 3 months straight. But I did notice several $100 BJ tables in the high limit pit being empty on a Saturday night at Mohegan Sun, yet people were circling the $25 like sharks. Guess we'll have to wait and see in the coming weeks if this trend of gouging table minimums continue.

My point is that if human life is the concern, aim for the bigger issues.



This is where it gets really weird. In order to maximize the value of human life, it requires a combination of aims at an endless amount of issues, some large, some small. You seem to keep saying that if something doesn't effect the largest numbers, it has no relevance and should be pushed aside and ignored. Doing that devalues human life. You are perfectly free to do that, but it contradicts what you're saying.

Gila River has announced it is shutting down its three Phoenix-area casinos after a security guard died from CV19.
His family members claim he had been told to work or be terminated. Shut down is expected to last at least two weeks.



Wow, Phoenix re shuts casinos down because of 1 guard dropped dead! Hmm...Las Vegas will likely re-shut casinos down too when some dealers/guards dropped dead of covid19.

This is A tribe shutting down its Phoenix area casino not ALL Pheonix area tribes. There are I think five different tribes with casinos in the Phoenix area. Itís probably good that AZ wasnít where they are now in winter, however, with all the additional snowbirding olds around. Might be a light winter for that next year.

I guess it depends whether you press the "Confirmed Cases button," or the "Hospitalizations" button..

Take your pick

I pay attention to deaths and hospitalizations. In Arizona, the good news is the ratio between the two is growing. People are recovering at a much better rate, but the bad news is more people are being hospitalized.
Arizona seems to be adding the two types of tests together, mixing people with antibodies results with people newly infected, so new cases and the test numbers aren't particularly relevant.

Agree. Hospitalizations show the actual effect on the community. Since we don't test everyone, the 'confirmed cases' count is more determined by how many people are tested than how many people actually have the virus. Unless we come up with an effective pre-hospital treatment, the community severity is best evaluated by hospitalizations.

China is beginning to shutdown again as a new outbreak strikes

Arizona restaurants seeing spike including Zipps restaurant which made a big deal that they refused to allow any employees or patrons to wear masks as a statement of their freedom.

Oh, gee, now their employees are coming back infected.

Geniuses

BTW, Arizona governor just ordered mandatory face masks in public.

And moments later, several Sheriffs said they weren't going to enforce it.
