Well, Caesars didn’t shut down as quickly in Las Vegas as MGM did, but both hotel and entertainment giants have now closed their doors in Sin City.

If you didn’t already think coronavirus was being taken insanely seriously, this should do the trick. Vegas isn’t supposed to shut down for anything.

Yet, the two companies that run the city have officially closed the doors for the time being because of the virus.

This virus truly knows no bounds. It’s come for everything we love in this country, and there’s no end in sight, which might be the worst part.

When Vegas shuts down, it’s generally a good sign that you probably shouldn’t be out and about doing stuff. I hate to say it, but it seems to be the reality.

I also have an upcoming trip to Vegas scheduled. Let’s hope like hell this situation is all sorted out by then.
