    New York has now mandated that anyone visiting Nevada and a number of other states has to self-quarantine for 14 days when returning, so I've cancelled my July trip and rescheduled for August, although I doubt that will happen. The reasoning is the Northeast has shut down for 3-1/2 months to get the curve down, and no one wants travelers returning from high rate states to come back and start things all over again.

    I am in perfect agreement with this policy. I live in NYC and a few months ago, 800 people a day were dying from Covid-19. Today, seven people died from Covid-19. I've walked past Elmhurst Hospital to see people lined up on the street waiting 6 or 7 hours in the rain to get into the emergency room. The only problem was the emergency room and ICU were full, so you'd get triaged in a tent outside and then told to go home and self-quarantine because the hospital couldn't admit you. I've seen the body bags being carried to refrigerated trucks outside hospitals because their morgues were full, the reports of funeral homes unable to handle the number of dead, and the lines of graves being dug on the island that serves as the city's Potter's Field.

    When I see video of people ignoring mask wearing or social distancing, I just think none of these people realize how quickly this thing can spread, and how quickly you can get to thousands of infections a day. And to be honest, the news from Las Vegas is a little scary right now, with the numbers getting worse by the day, and masks only made mandatory this week. The science says being indoors with air conditioning recirculating air is one of the worst situations to be in, and what is Las Vegas but that. Sorry to be a downer here, and I love Las Vegas, but I don't want to go through what we've gone through here the last three months ever again.

    If August gets cancelled, then I won't try again until Rodeo Week, if there is a Rodeo Week.

    Unforeseen circumstances have led to the cancelling of my trip next week, but alas I was able to pull off a (albeit shorter) trip this weekend instead! Are there any group meetups or group pulls planned that I can get in on?!

    Reschedule for August for now. It's an adventure in scheduling.

    @BYlee291, I also live in NYC and understand why the policy was implemented. Still get frustrated. After mourning my canceled trip, I just put on my big girl's pant and rescheduled.

    Now, not so sure. Maybe 60% at this point. Parents want me to isolate myself after I get back (no problem, I have direct access to outside from my bedroom), my "own" bathroom, etc. Also supposed to go to Wisconsin to a cabin house a few days after I return. The one person I am staying with is in Florida right now and she owns the cabin. Soooo... Needless to say, July 21st, I will have some decisions to make. First, watch Nevada's numbers, then decide. As for Wisconsin, that's a different story for a Wisconsin Fanatics forum :)

    Also, edited to add... The city of Chicago has a quarantine mandate for those who live in the city and travel to those states. My suburb is only about 30-45 minutes from the city, so I am not affected... yet. However, knowing our Governor, it would not shock me if he implements this rule state-wide, any day now.

    Word is the governor is shutting down bars and taverns that don’t serve food. Not sure how/if this will effect casino bars.

    Well shit, was ready to leave two weeks from now and roll back to phase 1, no VP bars, limited choices on food and now masks at the fucking pool, really.. I can see masks inside but statistically the direct sun kills the disease according to the so called experts. I’m 70/30 not going but will wait to see what happens this week. I can see the casinos totally shutting down to stop the bleeding.

    Well ideally what was supposed to happen was to maintain distancing indoors and outdoors - with or without masks. But since nobody was (or at least not enough people were) doing that, we've gone overboard again and decreed masks on at the pool. Masks everywhere will cut down on cases pretty quickly - let's see if the lesson is learned next time when things open up again.

    Cancelled April, May and June trips, but July is on for 22-28. Rio first 3 days and Red Rock second 3.
    Finally going to pay for Early Bird on SWA (which will be the only loss if I have to cancel again).

    Rio is suppose to open on the 20th, if it doesn't I will cancel the trip (do not want to stay at any of the strip CET hotels).
    Update, well Rio's not opening as expected and they tried to change me to Harrahs. Not interested in strip so I cancelled Rio and added Sunset (host even got me into a suite) for the time. So its an all Stations trip.

    Finally tapped out on July. Chances were we were not going any way but the ban on bar top gaming erased any remaining doubts. Maybe we will see LV in aug or September. Not too optimistic though.

    Less than 9 days and I will be at CP. I was hoping to run into some of you as I am on my first solo trip. I may have a friend come down from MN, I hadn’t seen him in almost 10 years.

    What I have found is that I am desperate to follow the recent live trip reports and feel at a loss when there aren’t new posts .

    Years ago I did my first TR - maybe 2015 on a different board. Someone posted a smart ass comment and I just stopped. I have done a few since then - and will attempt to do so next week. As it may be my only socialization opportunity- I will try. Please keep posting if you are there over the next week.

    I have a full TR started for this week; feel free to read! And enjoy your trip; try to not worry about smart ass comments. Most are just joking and those who aren’t don’t matter.

    We had changed our July 3-7 trip to July 24-28. Our normal July trip is for my bday, the second weekend of the month. Our PHo reservation got moved to Paris, but I’m afraid we’re just going to wing it and decide next week if we pull the trigger and take the trip. It’s cool with me if we skip it, my high school friends are still planning a mid August trip.

    I am not going after all. Too many restrictions. Too much work. I don't like reservations. I never know what to expect from Drunk ffejry, so reservations are pointless. No bars, hard to find slushie drinks, no thanks. I'm fine with masks, but I have a feeling there are going to be even more restrictions with masks AND pools. At the end of the day, it'll be just me in the room where I can be myself, except that is no fun either. Have fun to all of those who are still going. You guys are troopers!
