OPINION: Do casinos reopening after evacuations spur concerns over Tahoe visitor activity? Robert Galloway, Tahoe Daily Tribune · September 14, 2021 at 7:28 pm As I write this, three of the four large casinos (Bally’s/Montbleu, Hard Rock, and Harrah’s) in Stateline have opened back up after either closing outright, or reducing operations while continuing to serve the emergency responders that have done so much to protect communities in the wake of the Caldor Fire. Harveys is expected to open next week. If you gauge their reopening by feedback across social channels, it is definitely a mixed bag of emotions. After an unprecedented evacuation of the greater south shore, what’s the right balance to strike when it comes to reopening? It ultimately boils down to getting people back to work and a return to normalcy vs. the safety of the community.
