Stay at Home Fall Season is Likely
It certainly looks like we're in for the long haul when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic. Most people have accepted that COVID-19 will make this fall much different from past years.
Accordng to USAToday.com, "more than 6 out of 10 Americans said it is likely they will be working from home this fall and 56% said it was unlikely they would be working from their office, according to the latest poll."
There is one thing that is most likely certain when it comes to the fall season, we don't expect our kids to be in school this fall and more classes will be taught online.
Many schools are leaning in that direction already. Most students at Michigan State University will be taking online classes as well.
"Staying close to home appears to be the plan as the COVID-19 crisis is into its fourth month in the U.S. Most do not expect travel anytime soon, with 82% saying it is unlikely they will travel over the Labor Day holiday. 74% said it is unlikely they will travel for winter vacations too."

What about Halloween? Halloween is my favorite holiday and I'm sure that will change too. Based on the latest poll, 27% plan to take their kids trick-or-treating this year.
Did you know that 80% of Americans anticipate a second wave of COVID-19 even as we battle this first one.
Based on the most recent USA Today survey, 75% said they are more likely now to wear a mask and socially distance than last month.
