As summer approaches, the world looks very different than it did this time last year.
More than 100 million Americans have already been vaccinated. People are traveling, eating in restaurants, seeing their families again. But “normal” hasn’t quite arrived: Masks are still required on public transportation and inside many buildings, remote work is still in the cards at many companies and younger children still cannot be vaccinated. The outlook for big summer events is mixed — some will go on but with capacity limits and rules on social distancing, others have been canceled or postponed. And a good number of people don’t want to rush back into their pre-pandemic lives, choosing instead to take some of the lessons of this difficult time to find a better balance.
With all that in mind, we want to know: What are you planning this summer?
Will you be revisiting past traditions or vacation spots?
Are parties, concerts and other in-person events in your plans, or not yet?
What are you hoping your life will look like as we go forward?
