I have yet to hear a convincing argument for not requiring masks (or face coverings) in confined spaces. I do not find the personal freedom argument compelling in regards to CV19. Randomized trials would be better, but there seems to be some evidence they help reduce spread:

Physical distancing, face masks, and eye protection to prevent person-to-person transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19: a systematic review and meta-analysis:

Anyone who wants to gamble in Atlantic City without a mask stay away.

It's the law!

Governor Murphy has advised any patrons refusing to wear a mask be escorted off the property

Don't you think that is awfully selfish? Mom shouldn't be inconvenienced but I should be?

If we just all accept the fact that we are all going to die what difference does it make if it is tomorrow or 50 years?



Why should others accept that there is no difference between dying now and dying 50 years from now when you can;t accept that mask requirements are not a big deal? That is selfish.

No, it will be shut down again because some lonely selfish people are scared to die and scared to see others die. If we just all accept the fact that we are all going to die what difference does it make if it is tomorrow or 50 years?



Are you for real?

I don't want to die tomorrow but if you don't care, please volunteer to the Grim Reaper to take my place.

A loophole says a gambler doesn't have to wear a mask when she

1) drinks
2) eats, or
3) smokes.

So a smoking-gambler can puff away all day long without wearing a facemask in a casino. Go figure.

Can you provide a link to that?

Governor Murphy is releasing more restrictions in the next few days for the casinos to open. I won't be surprised if there is some restrictions for smoking.

Well we must be doing something right here in Canada ..... 300 new cases yesterday. Most of those in Ontario 216. Windsor remains on stage one all because of the greenhouse owners not taking enough care with their help getting them tested. 30 migrant workers tested positive

Sorry, there's no link to a loophole.

Just a few minutes ago during a raido news release, Murphy reconfirms that all people in casinos must wear a facemask where-ever "PRACTICAL". He did not issue an executive order to prohibit smoking in casinos.

Casinos always find a loophole to make profits over anything [covid19 or lives!] Casinos will allow gamblers to drink, eat, or smoke without a facemask . It's just another facts of life.

Update: Wind Creek Casino (the old Sands@Bethlehem) will reopen on 6/29, Monday. CEO Jay Dorris says that smoking is banned in casino except for an outdoor area located in the north parking lot.

We, the people of USA, must do something wrong...There were 26,643 new covid19 cases yesterday. Europeans want to ban American Jets. They think that Yankees are not too smart when thousands facemaskless attendees are allowed in the Bok Center [in Tulsa, OK] and the Dream City Church, the megachurch [in Phoenix, Arizona].

If you let the government force you to wear a mask, what’s next? Are they going to make laws forcing you to wear clothes in public?
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?
