    To answer your question, thereotically, yes. Now, one thing to remember is that time spent in a location is a factor, as well as circulation. All that being said, there is definitely risk with smoke, hence why I am surprised that they haven't put out some smoking limitations.

    The thing about temperature checks is that it only catches people that are sick in the moment. People that are asymptomatic ...

    There's going to be risk in any outdoor activities. If one wants to go out, remember to limit your time in a location. It'll be hard in casinos, but as one study recently indicated (I don't know why it took this long to get a study out, as it seemed like common sense) the amount of virus you take in is a big factor. Hence why a quick trip to the store is ... well, there's risk, but it's not as risky as a store worker being there all day, if you catch the drift.

    I think that a lot of casinos are trying to deal with this by increasing circulation and some of those air purification methods being discussed, but I'm not sure how much good that will be if people stay in one location and don't move about.

    I'm glad that most of the casinos I go to are non-smoking, though. Albeit, they have some smoking patios now.

    Those e-cig "vapor" things has got to be the most dangerous thing out there. When you look at the amount of vapor moisture exhaled, how can you not take a tremendous exposure risk with the COVID-19 germ. Without banning all smoke in a casino, you cannot police each smoker to determine what they are exhaling. This will be an interesting dynamic as casinos reopen.

    You might be surprised at the studies being done suggesting that nicotine is protective against COVID. One such study was done in Greece and the NIH has published the conclusions (April 30th). It may well be that you're more of a danger to smokers than they are to you.
    Time will tell. In the end, they'll know just about everything there is to know about the virus.

    @evilyn, I didn't want to post up the actual study (it's very technical, but very detailed, scientific, and informative) for fear people would go buy a nicotine patch and get themselves addicted lol.
    But for those who promise NOT to take up some nicotine-laden product habit, here goes (it IS very 'medical', warned you )

    Scroll down to #4 and #6 in particular if it's way too heavy for a complete read.

    Mohegan Sun will reopen with no indoor smoking allowed. They have set up outdoor smoking areas. When someone goes outside to suck a butt, they must use hand sanitizer upon return. No services will be provided to anyone who is smoking.

    Here is the Mohegan Sun plan for players and employees which includes a Smoking section:

    Soft opening for Soar members in Saturday and Sunday. General opening is Monday.

    Winstar will require everyone to wear masks at all times, so I guess that means no indoor smoking?
