    I know how you feel. I'm from Australia and 86'd from my nearest casino. The next closest casinos are all CSM. The last time I went to an Australian based casino which still employs shoes, I was identified by name and asked not to play anymore, despite never having been there before, nor providing ID. For me, I need to travel abroad just to play, which I why I'm limited to the odd Vegas trip here and there.

    I haven’t played in 2020 and so far, doesn’t look like it will get any better in 2021. As it continues, I don’t know the impact it will have on Las Vegas. I can’t see it ever getting back to the way it was in 2019 or earlier. After being counter measured in local casinos, fully 70% of my play was in Las Vegas over 4 days and 20-25 hours a month there.

    I am beginning to consider giving up, just play sporadically when there is opportunity because I can’t see myself taking the risk of so much contact from flying, renting cars, motels, food and casinos. I had thought the vaccine might mean true immunity but apparently it’s not the case.

    What do you mean? the vaccine will give you true immunity at 95% protection and close to 100% of serious disease. It might be slightly lower for your age group but sill great. If you add to this wearing a mask, I do not see why not go to a casino then.

    I wonder if it would be safe enough to go to the casino after just getting the first shot if you wear a mask. The first shot is suppose to provide some protection.

    I think you are seriously underestimating the capacity of the public to be complacent. It will get back to "normal". May take a couple of years, but it'll get there.

    I invite you to supply the proof to your allegations.

    The first shot gives some protection. But, that protection takes a month to fully develop. So, might as well wait for the second shot. Although it takes another month.

    The Johnson &Johnson one, now in trials, requires just one shot.

    Yes, but it likely won't be released for a few weeks and also requires a month for 90% efficacy, two months for full effect.
