For our local readers and those about to travel...Mary. An excerpt from a review 8/31 -9/7 on TA. Yes I know she said two were the cleanest so I guess they are equally clean :wink:

"Casinos - We visited the Ritz, Stellaris, and Hyatt casinos. They are not very big but are fun for a few hours. Smoking is no longer allowed so it smells cleaner and easier to breathe since you have to wear a mask. The Stellaris was the cleanest casino. They watch you and as soon as you get up from a slot machine, they wipe it down. There are plexiglass partitions at the tables except for roulette and craps. The Ritz was clean as well and they had partitions in between every slot machine. The Hyatt seemed to be the cleanest of the 3. Their machines had a digital display saying it was sanitized. As soon as you got up, the digital display showed a red notification that it needed to be sanitized."

Alhambra has done a good job also. Lots of staff circulating and watching when I have been there...you leave the machine, they clean. Lots of hand sanitizing stations (non touch) throughout the casino, I think there are plastic barriers at the gaming tables. At the cashier and Players Club areas as soon as a person leaves the window there is someone to clean. They also stopped allowing smoking a few days before the law took effect....staff is doing the happy dance (me too!) For machines that are in a line, every other one is closed. Actually, early in the day I feel safer there than the grocery store (grocery stores are doing a good job but busier and kids running around and fools don't follow the arrows, don't get me started! :wink: )

ann here in New York on lines we all pretty much social distance as there are tapped or foot decals on the floors. There are direction arrows on the floors but only in grocery stores. Back several months when people were rushing to grocery stores to stock up on non-essentils there was a need for lines and people followed them. Now the craziness has given way to we are all not going to dieso grocery stores are back to normal. We all try to follow the arrows but I find what I need is always at the other end so to get it the arrow way I would have to backtrack and double the time to get something.

A far as what casinos are doing again the same in stores here. What I suggest since the Arubans can't help but infect each other why not put plastic shields and arrows on the floors in their homes.
