It is actually too weird for this reason. I work in a supermarket produce dept. Business is way up as is of course, customer count. I have been in contact with 1000s as is many, many other workers. Only two cases of workers in this area have tested positive.

Here is the weird. Many of us were as sick as we have been in years in December-January. Even family members. Christmas Eve and Day I was cooked. And struggled afterwards. Did I have it? No proof until I get tested. If any of us "had it" that throws one big monkey wrench into this pandemic.

California has determined from autopsy results, that Covid was killing people far earlier than anyone thought.  They have done autopsies on people who died in January, indicating they contracted it weeks prior to that.  It is now believed that had they known sooner fewer would have died from it.  If you are on the coast, you may have had it without knowing it.  In one of JR Raymond's blogs he says he and his family were sick after a tournament and he believes it was long before covid was acknowledged.

Heat and humidity supposedly kills it.

I have thought that heat might kill it, but not so sure about the humidity side. My gut tells my hot dry might be a better. Been down here in Mesa for 3 months. Most rain ends up as verga in low humidity. Seems like droplets would evaporate faster too from coughing. Death rate is pretty low on a per capita basis. Also based on my observations rigid observance of social distancing isnt the reason.

I've read that at 70 degrees, 20% humidity, the half life of the virus is 18 hours, at 70 degrees, 80% humidity, the half life is 2 minutes.

At that rate it should complain that the AC has to be turned on like my wife does.  People here in Ky seem to think anything over 60 degrees is TOOOOO HOOOOOOT.  I'd love to be back in sunny Az.

I hadnt seen those humidity and temp numbers. How about at 90 degrees. I would assume any such study would cover a range of both temp snd humidity.

I'm all for re-opening the state, but you don't do it all in one go. For one, if a second wave hits Vegas if all the casinos reopen at once, people are going to die. It's going to overwhelm the hospitals down there in a week. 

 

The governor of the state has entertained June as a projected month to reopen, but it depends on your county. Some counties haven't been hit hard, some (the most populous ones, Clark [Vegas] and Washoe [Reno]) have been hit. Washoe, nowhere near as hard as Vegas, but who's to say what could happen?

 

Shake your magic 8 ball people, that's probably your best shot at guidance right now 😋

It sounds like the mayor of Vegas is a typical, average educated idiot. Anybody with any common sense knows that it’s not a wise idea reopen all of the casinos all at once. You do it bit by bit. It’s like “ a test it out slow process thing”.

If the casinos in LV open up right now, who the hell is going to go there anyway? I was in LV 1 week after 9/11.....never saw the place so dead....almost morgue like. It will take LV a very long time to get back to how it once was before all this. If you were a fan of buffets there, I guess you can forget that now too!!!

I ain't going anytime soon. Heck, I was there last March. That place is a giant petri dish, ESPECIALLY the Strip. 

I love the city, just like you do. And I'm all for the city taking it's time. I'm looking into a new job AGAIN since I don't know if I'll have one to go back to. There's talk of Meruelo Group (they own the Sahara down in Vegas as well as my property) cutting all lower-level positions down to a skeleton crew, and that includes my position. Right now it's talk, but I wouldn't put it past the conglomerates doing thoings like that to try and rebuild.

One would think the last place to fully reopen would be the Las Vegas casino strip.  Are the political leaders not paying attention to what has been happening in New York City in the last month?

Why is New York City at the heart of the COVID-19 outbreak?  It is the primary US destination of travelers from all over Europe, northern Africa and the Middle East.  It only took a few sick people in the crowded airports to start spreading a highly contagious infection that is now killing hundreds of locals every day. 

The Las Vegas Strip is New York City on a smaller scale -- people from around the world gathering in hotels and casinos.  There is no practical way to screen all the visitors at building entrances.  Besides, this coronavirus does not cause symptoms such as cough and fever until about five days after infection, so casino visitors feeling fine may already be infected and contagious.
