Some lost their jobs, others had to stay outside of hospital doors while their loved ones were dying inside, and many took relief in morally forbidden things like drugs and alcohol abuse.

Harrahs New Orleans Hotel & Casino | Proof of vaccine or no entrance

In the past months, casinos across the US have been easing into reinstated mandates. It started with employees having to wear masks again, then turned into workers forced to undergo weekly testing if not vaccinated, and some even fired staff members who refused to comply.
