    Can anyone provide any updates on pool access challenges, including waitlists, since the occupancy restrictions were eased on Saturday May 1. I am most interested in Bellagio and Wynn, but I would certainly be interested in first hand experiences at any strip hotels. I'm going in a week and a half and have my fingers crossed that the pool access situation will ease. Thanks

    I was at Flamingo last weekend and the pool was quite packed. Did not see a waitlist when I was there, but was told that there would be one if it hit capacity.

    How was the mask situation at the flamingo Go pool? Was the water still cold?
    Headed there this weekend.
    Thanks

    As far as I can tell, masks are still required at pools.

    There is new mask guidance for Nevada, based on CDC recommendations. They indicate that vaccinated people can gather outdoors without masks, unless in a crowd.

    I keep expecting to hear this means you don't have to wear a mask in your chair, lounger, cabana, if you are vaccinated, but so far I've seen nothing new.

    Our best bet for information seems to be real time info from people currently in Vegas.

    What happened before May 1st is already outdated because of capacity increasing this past weekend.

    without some sort of vaccine passport i imagine it's really hard for the casinos to enforce other than by using the honor system.

    I've actually stored my vaccination card in my passport so I don't lose it and for a while anyway, plan to take it with me anytime I travel...just in case.

    Sooo...when I was at the Mirage in April, a few days, they handed you a small bottle of water as you walked into the pool. If you didn't have your mask on while sitting in your seat, the mask police would scold you. However, they didn't tell you to put your mask on, per se, but they did tell you to make sure you were holding a drink if you had your mask off. This is where the water bottle came into play....genius.

    Was just at Cosmo Chelsea pool on Monday. We had a cabana. You had to wear your mask if you were walking to restroom or bar. But we did not have to wear the mask while in the cabana or while lounging. Others in just regular lounge chairs were not required to mask up either.

    Never saw a line to get in. Did get busy mid-late afternoon but not horrible.

    I don't carry the original, but a photocopy. It's the same thing I do with my passport when I travel abroad. I don't want to carry the original because if it gets lost, that's a problem, and unlike an actual passport, there's no way to just easily replace your vaccine card.

    I'm planning on laminating mine, same idea. I wouldn't be surprised if providing proof of it becomes a thing in various places.

    Just an FYI, i was going to laminate mine, too, but I read recently that you should not laminate your card at this time. We may need booster shots and laminating would make it difficult to update the card.

    So rather than worrying about laminating or losing your card, a simple step to take is to make sure your primary care doctor has your shots on record.

    This way all you need to do is print a copy of your records in the future.

    This is a very good point. I went to the Dr this week and was pleased to see that my vaccinations were listed on my health record even though I was vaccinated at a supermarket pharmacy. It was nice to know that there was some coordination. I’m not sure if that’s the case for everyone (I’m in WA).
