Coronavirus and the Tampa Seminole Hard Rock Casino

The Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Tampa has already closed their huge poker room, due to "social distancing" issues. But they are trying to keep the joint open with an ingenious idea. They plan to turn off every 2nd and 3rd slot machine in a row, and so maintain a distance between other players.
Example: (on, off, off, on, off, off, on, off, off, etc.)
I'm not sure if the players at table games can be thus "separated". I've heard the State of Florida may let them do this, especially since the Seminole Hard Rock is such a big payday for their state budget.

CHANGE. Just got an email from the casino. They are closing it all down, statewide. But, nice try guys,

They could easily block every other seat, or leave 2 active per table. I'm not sure how effective that will be in preventing illness, though. I doubt the slot closures will be effective either.
I just heard from someone who is taking a super discount flight, round trip under 300 from West coast, to Bahamas Atlantis.
Does Atlantis have playable games?

Received an email from Atlantis last week saying that they are closed. It's possible that they just meant the resort, but I dont think so.
I think that they will say closed until 2021. I feel like they will lose a lot of money especially during the holiday seasons though. I think that the majority of these should try create something like an online casino room or something. I think that they will be very popular because so many places are closing down again. I for example really love to play slots and Russian roulette and doing it online is a great option for me especially now when pretty much everything else is closed. I have been trying a few different online casino rooms while in self-isolation and one of my personal favorites is the one called joker123. I like it because they have some really nice bonuses, there a lot of different games so to speak (from poker to blackjack to slots to roulette) and they also have some really good prizes. I think that if you guys never tried online casinos before you can give it a spin.
