Does anyone know what the next decision date is for covid restrictions.
Is Sisolak still calling all the shots in Vegas?

Yes, Sisolak makes the calls. He usually updates every two weeks.

When the latest indoor mask mandate was made by the Clark County Commissioners they said it was until Sept 8

Governor Sisolak no longer decides. He relinquished these powers to each individual County.

The NGC Board said it would follow the Clark County Commission.

I expect the mask mandate to be continued. Since July 30, when the mandate was reinstatedÖI really havenít seen any discernible or correlating decrease in cases.

I believe 5 of the 17 Nevada counties were not deemed as elevatedÖtherefore no mask mandate. I could be wrong.

Are you saying wearing a mask hasn't decreased the transmission rate in Vegas?

I donít think it has. If you look at the chart going as far back as March 2020Öwith a mask mandate, the chart reads like a roller coaster. Peaks and valleys. Ups and downs. Some leveling off, peaking and dropping again.

The pro mask people will likely argue whatever the numbers areÖthey would have been higher without masks. I really donít buy in to that type of argument as pro mask can never be wrong.

I think we are averaging about 1,000 cases per day since the 2nd mandate.

The positivity rate also has issues now. Many businesses including the biggie MGM now require testing regardless of how you feel. So, tests will go up and positivity rate will go down. People will cheer the positivity rate has gone down. It really means nothing.

In casinos itís a faux mask mandate anyways with the having a cigarette pack or drink laying around you exemption. Enough to annoy people, not enough to accomplish much. Iím not arguing for or against anything itís just an obvious observation. Those really riled up about needing it for the most part probably werenít going to casinos in the first place and donít know itís a joke.

The entire ďmask in casinoĒ charade is a joke. If the science says you wear it to protect others, wonderful. The fact that they not only allow smokers, vapers and cigar aficionados to remove their mask but also to blow respiratory particles thruout the casino, told me their ďscienceĒ is a jokeÖespecially here in Vegas.

Maybe masks work, maybe not so much. I really donít know. When they continued to allow mask removal to smoke, they told me it was never about science.

Those in control wonít speak of the issue either. They know theyíll sound like idiots trying to justify or excuse it.

At least NJ acknowledged it and banned it during the emergency crisis.

There was a two week or so period in Vegas where I stopped wearing my mask, during that month or so where the mask mandate was lifted. It was during that two week period that I contracted whatever it was that I caught, some kind of cold I think, as I tested negative for coronavirus twice since catching that and also once negative before catching that. But I was definitely sick with something and during the year that I wore I mask I came down with nothing at all.

So, anecdotally speaking, masks work - but, I assume, work best if everyone around you is also wearing a mask.

Another advantage to the mask mandate is that smoking is prohibited in the high limit pits of Venetian and Palazzo. I believe this prohibition was not lifted at all since reopening June 2020.
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people. https://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/betting-systems/33908-the-adventures-of-mdawg/

Red RockÖand I assume other Station properties had banned smoking at the tables during the first mask mandate. That no longer applies during the 2nd mask mandate. Smoke away.
