All masked up and ready to gamble as Maryland’s casinos reopen Joe Heim, Washington Post · June 30, 2020 at 7:17 am So, are you feeling lucky? That’s what gamblers around the Washington region are asking themselves as they decide whether they are comfortable returning to Maryland’s casinos, the two largest of which reopened Monday following a three-and-a-half month shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. For Mariam Hashimi, of Woodbridge, Va., the answer was a qualified yes. Hashimi said she called MGM National Harbor on Monda morning to check on safety precautions before deciding to visit. She arrived following her shift as an attendant on Amtrak’s autotrain wearing the same protective equipment she wears for work including gloves, two face masks and a face shield.
