Change in Playing conditions Pre-Covid v Post Covid?

Pen at the Borgata is noticeably better my last couple of trips. $25 minimum, S17, 6 deck, no surrender, 3:2, pen is about 1.25 - 1.5.
I would like to see it closer to 1, but better than the 2-2.5 that I was seeing last year. Perhaps their paranoia level has come down.
