There is so much smoke in casinos, you would be in danger if you entered. I would ask you to stay home based on COPD.

You said nothing about slot machines. Are they open? How and how often sanitized?

Posted by Janet Wheatley on

I have been to all of the casinos, there. They have some of the machines shut off and space in between them. They also have plexiglass, between a lot of the machines. I did see them being sanitized regularly.

What does “housekeeping room services are offered at checkout only, or upon request by guest” mean? What are “housekeeping room services”? My room is cleaned only when I check out? I can only order room service when I check out? Makes no sense at all.

Flying into Tunica for a 3 night stay at The Horseshoe. Will I have to be quarantined if I have not been exposed to the virus?

How many “sides” are there at the crap tables? Three, four?

Still too dangerous, in my opinion. We are watching the case & death totals in the news. We look forward to better news soon. Thank you for caring.
