    my crystal ball tells me that lots of guests at caesars and elsewhere are going to be making hydration a bigger priority.

    a good sign of safety measures... but maybe a bad sign that this precaution is due to cases in Nevada being on the rise. I'm not too optimistic about my trip in July. If I remember what happened in March correctly, the exponential spread means that another shutdown could come suddenly. It's obvious looking back it. Reopening and not requiring people to wear masks sure won't lower the number of cases

    I'm sure they are just getting ahead of what will be announced today by the Governor. Good for them. I am arriving Sunday, a couple nights at Cosmo and then to Caesars.

    I'm definitely keeping my August trip now, good move CET. First time I've ever said "good move" and "CET" in a sentence before.

    I can't go anyways right now being from Canada. But I also have asthma and wearing a mask nonstop isn't really good for my breathing. I think many asthmatics are like this. I had to wear a mask for an hour in a store the other day and by the time I left I was almost having an asthma attack. So there is that. sigh. At least they aren't requiring them at the pool.

    I totally understand if someone wants to wear a mask and I totally understand if they don't.
    I was in Vegas on June 11th for 5 days and obviously most people were not wearing masks especially most of the younger people.
    Some casinos required masks at table games but not all over the casino and I was kind of OK with that.
    I will be back to Vegas on July 3rd and have a feeling that I will be spending more time outside wondering around.

    I would suspect Caesars is the first domino, of course, depending Sisolak's upcoming statement.

    I DID notice several "team members" at Caesar's in Indiana with the mask below their nose.

    Thrilled with the news, but it would have been better if they could have had put out an advance notice, so the "I'm not going if I have to wear a mask" people could reassess their trip in advance. At the same time, I do understand what's happening, it's that they put themselves between a rock and a hard place, as the spread numbers show that simply starting the mask wearing or better distancing, a few days earlier, can have a big impact on the spread.

    If employees were getting the virus (there are some reports of this), and this became a trend, it's either do this, or pretty soon, close them all down again.

    The fact that Caesars is doing this ahead of the Governors likely announcement of the same, will hopefully take some heat off him in being the scapegoat for implementing the only thing (masks) that has been PROVEN effective in slowing the spread.

    I am sooooo happy everybody finally has to wear a mask! I do understand when people come to visit they want to have fun but it would be more fun to eradicate the virus first and then everybody can have fun...even the ones with impaired health.

    What kind of masks do they provide can anyone show a picture. I have a few cloth ones for when I make a run to the store but they are annoying to wear more then a few minutes at a time because of how unbreathable they are. I need to find some of the thin blue medical ones.

    Not a fan of wearing a mask I deal with it for 1 hour twice each week and I survive. Not sure why but my psyche has me really wanting to be in vegas lately and I would put up with wearing a mask to be there.

    Just a reminder that we're still not allowing the back and forth about whether or not you agree with wearing a mask indoors. And we should avoid speculation as much as possible. Even though I did it about the governor's announcement later today. :) Bad, Sonya! I should probably be banned for a week or two. Maybe three. ;)

    Discussion about this policy is fine as long as we don't settle into those same old arguments about mask usage.

    I've cleaned up a few posts in here that went awry. Please don't make me have to do it again, or we'll have to close the thread to comments.

    The statement says indoors at their property. I haven't heard anyone requiring masks at the pool or outdoor areas. I think you're probably good to go mask-less at the pool.

    They don't say anything about that in their statement or on the website. If you can only take off a mask for drinking and eating, I'm guessing you can't to smoke inside the property. Before, the policy was masks had to be worn at tables. If you wanted to smoke, you needed to step away from the table to smoke. Now you have to go outside? Going to be interesting to see how that shakes out. I'm sure we'll start hearing about that soon.

    Galen Rupp, America's best distance runner, is an asthmatic and an acute pollen-sufferer and he once won the U.S. championship in the 10K wearing a mask.

    While jurisdictions do seem to be offering exemptions for legit medical reasons, perhaps you should talk to your doc or respiratory therapist about a mask that works for you as it looks like they will be around for a while.

    Screenshot of Flamingo’s Instagram saying it’s indeed inside only and not at the pool. 100% for this now!
