Here is a quote from the article that caused me to wonder: "In public spaces, the casino performed the best, since it has built-in filtering for tobacco smoke.  Nonetheless, all venues showed no evidence of aerosol or surface contamination." 

How could the Casino area perform better than "no evidence"?

That's because the filter here is blocking it as a site not allowed to be posted.

Thanks. Is it because it is a blog? or RCL?

This explains that a little better - (from the study link - not sure if this one works) https://www.royalcaribbeangroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/UNMC-Aerosol-study-findings.pdf

 

 

In the public areas, test aerosol appeared to move directly between the connected spaces (outside of the ventilation systems), as expected, but smoke control systems in the public areas appear to impact the transport. Aerosol released in areas equipped to manage tobacco smoke (casino and comedy club) were largely contained within those areas. Aerosol released in the ice rink venue, which does not allow smoking, migrated to the comedy club, likely due to the smoke control system in that space. The lounge, a “no smoking” area adjacent to releases in both the comedy club and ice rink, where no release was performed, showed no evidence of aerosol or surface contamination. In general, particles released in the public areas were not observable after 15 minutes, likely due to dilution in the large spaces.
