As you can probably guess, our trips are off for now. Calder has reopened, so we went over to check it out. You have to wear a mask and they check your temperature on the way in. Several of the machines are turned off to allow for social distancing between players. They’re also installing clear plastic barriers between some machines.
They’re cleaning the machines fairly often, but we took along our own cleaner to wipe off the buttons when we sat down to play a machine. Lucky’s is open with a limited menu, but the buffet is closed. No BINGO or other specials going on for now either. The self-serve drink bars are closed, but they have people circulating on the casino floor taking drink orders.
However, we still have the challenge of everyone sitting together on the bus for the ride to the casino and back, and we just don’t feel comfortable with that. We feel like we need to wait until things get “better”, hopefully they’ll come out with a vaccine that works. If you’ve paid for a trip we’ll carry your money forward. Contact us if you’d prefer to get a refund.
