The Entertainment Capital of Tomorrow. Part II

Part II

Training, Knowledge, and compliance. These words ring true in solving any problem and reopening the entertainment capital of the world is no different.  Having properly trained staff was well as proper guidelines will be effective in reducing the spread of COVID-19.

As we move toward more definite dates for states to open, more specifically Nevada, there is still much debate on how soon is too soon.  A great divide still exists between those who wish to work and those who feel that more time is needed.

Nevadans are much more at ease now that the unemployment issues are being resolved as staff at the Department of Training and Rehabilitation has been increased.  The phone system was not designed to handle the amount of claimants that occurred after the March 16th non-essential worker lay-offs.

According to Sabrina Hudson with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, claimants rose from 10,000 claimants a month, to 10,000 claimants per day.  These numbers should begin to go down as some businesses across the state are slowly reopening.

The Entertainment Capital of Tomorrow.

How will the entertainment capital of the world look tomorrow and beyond?

Part I

As we move further into the summer of 2020, we have and are still enduring a global pandemic that has wreaked havoc on the lives of those on our planet.

It has destroyed lives, ended lives, and has created struggles that no one that we know of today could have foreseen.  Speculation as to who, when, where, and how this virus was let loose on the planet still moves through the minds of many.

What’s important for us right now is to stay safe, stay healthy, and stay motivated.  The numbers of infected and deaths from COVID19 in Las Vegas as far as we know have dropped and continue to decline.  But what exactly does mean for Las Vegas and the world?  One must remember that the Coronavirus is still a threat as it is believed to be mutating, affecting children with illnesses outside of the symptoms that we’ve seen, and at the very least is still very contagious.

Having said that, consider that those that would normally frequent entertainment venues that have underlying illnesses, are retirement age, and/or those that simply fear getting ill from the virus are removed from the statistics.  The challenge is to fill the seats but at the same time having to monitor that activity for enforcement of social distancing.  Handling that as a hospitality entity will most certainly be challenging.

Social distancing, resolving disputes, and superior guest service with a mask on will be the first and foremost hurdle to overcome.  We now have reopening guidelines from both the Nevada Gaming Control Board as well as the corporate guidelines outlined by various companies.

Rear view mirror

Beyond Young

When we first get into a car, one of the first things we do is look into the rear view mirror. When driving we have to in order to see what’s behind us. This is part of the safety of driving. But what about in life? If we are always looking back, can we move forward? Even when were driving, if we continue staring back, were going to crash, then of course there is no moving forward. So the question is, if we are always looking back, how can we move forward?

When were driving and glance at our rear view mirror, were looking to see if its clear to change lanes most of the time right? which is a positive move to get you to your destination safely. What we dont want to do is continue to stare into the rear view mirror looking for something, because thats a…
