The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services recently issued a face mask advisory ahead of the holidays and the Motorcity Casino located in Detroit is the first casino to implement the advisory.

They go on to say that under the advisory any over the age of 2 years old must wear a mask indoors to help cut down on the recent spike in COVID-19 cases.

The casino put the following message on their website:

Effective at noon Tuesday, Nov 23, face masks must be worn by customers, associates, and other visitors, REGARDLESS OF VACCINATION STATUS. This update is in response to the Nov 19 Face Mask Advisory issued by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

At this time, this policy will not apply for guests while they are attending banquets or events in Sound Board. Source:NBC25.com

I honestly don't feel like a mask mandate or advisory is a big deal. I genuinely feel like when the MDHHS issues a face mask advisory it's a real attempt to mitigate the spread of the virus. It's not guaranteed that wearing a mask will prevent you from catching covid but, it definitely helps with cutting down the arch of salvia and mist that explodes from your mouth when you speak.

Check out the video below, it goes into detail about the types of masks that people are using and which are the most effective. I believe that any mask is better than none, and anyway I can help mitigate the spread by doing something so simple is a no-brainer in my book.
