Just got back from Vegas for the 4th. Here are my takeaways
For a 4th, Vegas was pretty dead.
Had breakfast at a local breakfast restaurant. Masks everywhere, they took out a ton of tables, and all tables were a good 6 feet from each other. Booths were every other. I'd say they were at 25% seating capacity of what they normally are at.
Bellagio on Friday, barely anyone in there. No temperature checks. They had partitions on tables, and just turned off machines so that you couldn't play them. standard layout and occupancy.
Venetian also on Friday. More people than Bellagio. They checked temperature when you came in, masks everywhere. no partitions on tables and turned off machines so that you couldn't play them. standard layout and occupancy.
Strip itself on Friday. We drove down the strip. It was dead. Usually there would be tons of people walking in the morning when it's cooler, especially between hotels. Saw barely anyone walking.
Southpoint on Sunday. They didn't take temperatures in the morning when we got there, but there was someone doing it later. tables were 3 people per. And machines were turned off. standard layout and occupancy.
Silverton. Hotel we stayed at. I was actually impressed with them. 2 entrances only, manned 24 hours a day to check temperature. Masks on all the time, except when drinking/smoking. Everyone I saw would take a sip and put the mask back on. If you didn't have a mask one was provided, and compliance was pretty high. I didn't see anyone without a mask. Security or anyone working there got on anyone without a mask pretty quick. I.E. I saw the cocktail waitress reminding people to put their mask on. Pool area was the only place you didn't have to wear a mask. They had a security guard there counting how many people were in the pool, and limiting/preventing more from going in. Pool chairs were spread out. Housekeeping doesn't do daily room cleanings. Casino wise, 3 people per table. Tables were spread out. No turned off machines. They actually took effort to spread out the machines into carousels, so that no one was sitting next to each other, and distance between carousels were a good distance. All the restaurants had tables spread apart, and only every other booth was open. No buffet. Sportsbook was also only 2 per row, when it used to be 4 seats per row.
Rumor is, casinos are closing back up this week though. At least that's what one of our friends who works at Bellagio was told.
Drive wise, was a breeze for a holiday weekend. Made both ends of the trip in under 4 hours.
