When I am at a private reserved table, no problem, no one may come near me other than the dealer or the drink attendant.

When I am at a public table, I generally have a No Smoking sign erected, but sometimes I forget to do that.

Also, if I am at a public table, I have them raise the minimum to try to keep people away, but still high rollers appear on occasion who are not deterred by the minimums.

Occasionally I forget to erect the No Smoking sign at a public table, and someone shows up who smokes, which is not edifying. I sometimes then ask the person to please not smoke, and mention that I was about to ask the pit boss to make the table No Smoking, with varying results - no one has ever refused to not smoke , but some simply stand up and smoke right behind the table.

Coronavirus or no coronavirus, second hand smoke in casinos is definitely a solid health related reason to avoid casinos entirely.

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.

    Everywhere in Nevada requires masks indoors at the moment. With these exception of if vaccination is required as a condition of entry then masks are not legally required (like you will see at the Raiders game.)

    It has to be an event in excess of 4,000 to be exempt from the mask mandate. All vaccinated.

    My understanding is every Nevada county is now under a mask mandate as per the ďelevated countĒ guidelines. I think he overruled any local ordinance.

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

  • link to original post


    My personal opinion is no. The mask mandate was originally introduced in June of 2020, suspended in May of 2021 and reintroduced on August 1, 2021.

    The covid count has been a roller coaster of up and down and up and down since March 2020. I see no discernible pattern that says mask work or mitigate covid.

    Many will argue the count would be higher without a mask mandate, regardless. Since that is impossible to calculate and is simply a predictionÖI donít give it credence.

    How can anyone know what the transmission rate would be without a mask mandate? It might have been much higher, or it might have stayed the same. I've yet to hear a rational argument that it would be less without a mask mandate.
    The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

    I forget where I saw it (some news program) was that the cloth masks that most people are wearing
    are only 10-15% effective. The virus can go right through the cloth and most masks are not fitted
    right to begin with. Most notably around the nose.

    I'd say masks are at most marginally effective.

    Some might argue if it saves just one lifeÖitís worth it.

    I donít really buy into that idea. Itís an encumbrance. For me, itís a pain in the ass. It itches my face, irritates my ears, fogs up my glasses and muffles conversation.

    Others donít mind the encumbrance. Effectiveness is an unknown, IMO. At least here.
