We believe it is reasonable to surmise that most of the population is extremely pleased that the pandemic – or at least – the rules governing us during the pandemic – appear to be coming to a long-awaited end.
Only the most unseen and unexpected catastrophe can cause us to return to the Draconian existence we have all led since March 2020.
Most noticeable about the end of the restrictions here is that many, many men, women, and children are still wearing facemasks.
This proves that returning to normal is not so easy after living abnormally for longer than one year.
What took almost one year of our lives away from us in the traditional sense of thinking, will likely take at least the year in front of us to correct itself.
New guidance from state and federal regulators has allowed the biggest Las Vegas casino operators – Wynn Resorts Ltd. And Las Vegas Sands Corp to allow vaccinated guests to stop wearing masks.
This contrasts with strict regulations that remain in force at Encore Boston Harbor, where masks are still required inside.
However, Tuesday’s announcement by Governor Charlie Baker that all restrictions are being done away with on May 29 gives rise to the belief the Massachusetts Gaming Commission is sure to follow with an edict allowing full capacity without masks for the Encore Boston Harbor Casino and Hotel.
In Las Vegas, it has been announced, plexiglass shields have been removed from gaming tables inside the casino parlors and in poker rooms all over Las Vegas.
