Starting this Friday, Nevada will again require that all casino employees and patrons mask up while indoors.

Sorry Las Vegas, the party is over.

Gee, if we only had a vaccine we could all take for free, we wouldn't have this problem.

What?

We HAVE it now, and millions refuse to take it?

How [insert pejorative adjective of your choice here]!

The real problem was saying vaccinated people could go without masks.

I guarantee you that nearly half those people maskless next to you at the casinos were unvaccinated who spit in the face of the honor system.

NY never lifted the mask mandate. NY'ers are smart enough to know honor systems are worthless.

No. The real problem is that vaccinated people didnt have to show their vaccination card.

Yes, same side of the coin.

People were expected to be on the honor system.

Businesses wanted to say, hey we are back to normal. Can't do that if you are checking vaccinated card proof at the door.

Completely asinine mandate as it once again gives a big fat mask exemption to smokers, vapers and cigar puffers.

You can’t look at me with a straight face and say “we are following the science”.

At least NJ got it right and banned smoking during the mask mandate.

Gaming control, Sisolak, SNHD…they are all hypocrites.

You can have another mask mandate. You can’t possibly offer an exemption to those blowing respiratory smoke thru the most crowded venues in Nevada…casinos.

Sisolak can stuff this mandate. He knows he’s a hypocrite, which is why he has ignored every request to comment on allowing smoking in casinos during this pandemic.

Problem is more that Delta is more transmissible and vaccine less effective against it, I think less than half as effective at preventing infection itself but effective in making it asymptomatic/not severe. So with the different variant combined with loosening behavior there is much more spread among the vaccinated with this variant as well and whatever models they’re using weren’t based on this variant. That latter part (increased asympomatic spread among vaccinated) isn’t really acknowledged with the focus (rightly) on focusing on the vax benefits.

No one ever thought the honor system would work, just was based on the math of the previous variants and perhaps assumed a slightly better vax rate.

Vaccinated people shouldn’t be punished for it imo, can’t really help people who don’t want it. This is just mixed messaging, feels like going backwards to concentrate on masks rather than vaxxing. Oh well, I guess I’ll be healthier by spending more time outside because of it.

Many casinos did not allow smoking at tables when masks were required. I expect that rule to return.

Speaking of gaming control being worthless, Cromwell had a sign in their valet advertising 100x odds and single roulette for a minimum of four months after they’d been removed despite being asked about it and acknowledging they needed to be taken down.

They both protect each other. Whatever the casino wants…they call Sisolak, political donation made. He calls gaming control. Rinse repeat.

CDC says that they have discovered that the Delta Variant can be transmitted by vaccinated people even though the vaccination keeps the Delta variant virus at a low level in your body.

New guidance is for everyone in schools (K-12) to wear masks. Of course, the people in casinos are going to have to wear masks as well.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.
