Encore Boston Harbor To Furlough 3,000 Employees Ahead Of Limited Reopening In Phase 3

EVERETT (CBS) – Encore Boston Harbor announced Monday it is furloughing about 3,000 employees as it prepares to open to guests on a limited basis when Massachusetts enters Phase Three of its coronavirus reopening plan. The resort has been closed since March 15 as a result of coronavirus. Though the target date of Phase Three is July 6, Gov. Charlie Baker has not yet announced a firm date. When allowed to reopen, the casino said it will open gaming areas in a reduced capacity. Amenities will also reopen with new guidelines in place, as will food and beverage sales and the hotel with capacity restrictions. Though some employees in the reopened areas of the resort will return to work, about 3,000 employees and managers will be furloughed. Encore called the furloughs part of “very difficult decisions.” “A number of these employees will return to work for training when we have a definitive reopening date. The remainder will remain on furlough until business demand dictates their return,” Encore said in a statement. Wynn opted to pay employees across North America through May 31, or about 75 days, which cost the company about $220 million.

Authors: Davis JS, Ferreira D, Denholm JT, Tong SY Abstract Since coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and spread around the world, over 1100 clinical studies have been registered globally on clinical trials registries, including over 500 randomised controlled trials. Such rapid development and launch of clinical trials is impressive but presents challenges, including the potential for duplication and competition. There is currently no known effective treatment for COVID-19. In order to focus on those studies most likely to influence clinical practice, we summarise the 31 cur...

The UK government needs to be more rigorous and transparent with information if regional outbreaks of Covid-19 are to be containedIn the game of whack-a-mole, the target pops up in one location and, once hammered down, appears immediately somewhere else. The defining features of the exercise are randomness and futility, which makes it an unfortunate metaphor for Boris Johnson to use for his government ’s strategy when dealing with local Covid-19 outbreaks.The re-imposition oflockdown controls on Leicester is the first test of that approach and indications are not encouraging. The mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby, has complai...

Authors: Jang JG, Hur J, Hong KS, Lee W, Ahn JH Abstract BACKGROUND: The case fatality rate of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is estimated to be between 4.3% and 11.0%. Currently there is no effective antiviral treatment for COVID-19. Thus, early recognition of patients at high risk is important. METHODS: We performed a retrospective observational study of 110 patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection. We compared the effectiveness of three scoring systems: the Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS), quick Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (qSOFA), and National Early...
