Well if things don't go sideways as far as COVID goes my wife and I should be in Las Vegas for March Break which is the 13th to the 17th this year.

What's the lay of the land?

What are current COVID restrictions like? I think there is a mask mandate dependent on CDC guidelines for case rates in a county correct? Or do I have that wrong?

We'll almost certainly have to source PCR tests to return home to Canada. We use tried to use Elite Medical on Harmon, but ended up using e7 Health way south of the airport on our July 2021 trip. Any problems sourcing tests?

I have a car rented at the moment although it's $60/day ugh! I'm hoping the price drops and I'll cancel and re-book, but it is largely pay for parking on the strip now right? We're currently booked for TI, but we'll move to the Wynn/Encore if they change their current offer to something more reasonable. Both locations have free parking, however if we take the car to anywhere mid-strip or points further south we should expect to pay correct? We're visiting for an hour maybe two at most at any other locations.

Speaking of TI are their table games open all the time now or do they still open at 11AM?

What are minimums like for blackjack and craps? I could find $15 minimums at TI for blackjack and $15 minimum for craps at both Wynn/Encore and TI back in July 2021.

I think most shows are back on. The shows were just starting up again back in July.

Any other items that I should be aware of?

I expect hospitals in multiple states will just slam their doors on new patients for any malady including emergencies already.

Hopefully, masks will only be required for obese people with four or more comorbidities. COVID isn't a threat to the rest of us.

If you're already short of breath because you had COVID, an N95 mask on you may make it impossible to walk around like a tourist, especially indoors. Bring a pulse oximeter to check if you're dying.

There was an indoor mask mandate when I was there after Christmas. I would estimate about 90 - 95 % compliance.

I have a trip planned for early May.

If the sheeple are still wearing masks, I will cancel.

I am a vaccinated, healthy, viable human. My risk of death from COVID is 0.001%.

Caleb Wallace was fat, hypertensive, and diabetic- a mask wouldn't help him.

Mask mandate is here to stay…if the Governor holds to his word that certain metrics must be met. Case rate under 50 per 100k for 2 straight weeks and positivity under 8%. Both metrics aren’t even close right now. Another planet.

My guess is the mandate for masks disappears when it is no longer a political benefit for those in charge. That’s probably coming soon enough…but I’m guessing many months away.

Mask is mandatory for all casinos I have visited so far. But mask means any face covering. People are not worried about the virus. 70-80% people wear mask though. I will have PCR test around 15 Feb. Wil post update after.
Craps at Palace Station, South Point, Gold Coast, Stratasphere, Sahara and Rio is $10 min. Ellis Island is $5-$300. Venetian , Red Rock, Resorts World are $15 during daytime. Venetian and Resorts World go up to $25 at night. Aria is $25 all day. Hope it helps. A reminder, craps during daytime is pretty dead. except Ellis Island. A small tip, Ellis Island will feed anybody . Great steak and ribs. But karaoke will kill you.
Good luck
