I think what you have said here (and also what Ann said) tells me that it is going to take many/most of us a while to return to (most) old attitudes and habits. I agree with you that our attitudes will probably change. It is useful to understand that time is moving at a different pace now, and what we know and think is changing through that. When we talk about reopening, we are basically talking 6 months hence for the BEGINNING of that, and more like another year to get to a somewhat healthier (I think 50ish percent) point. What will you know and think in Oct '21? Think about what you knew and though in Oct '20. If things change as much going forward as they did going back, and assuming there are no major setbacks, what can you imagine your attitudes might be then? One more point related to the question of privilege. The expectation is that by the end of the summer, everyone who is willing to get vaccinated will be vaccinated. As of today, 43% of NYC has been 1st shot vaccinated. In Manhattan (which includes the most and least privileged residents) the percentage is 54%. In 10036, the main Broadway zipcode (much more skewed to privilege) that number jumps to 62%. And if you map the zipcodes throughout the country with the least promising vaccine stats, and then you cross reference the zipcodes where people are least likely to buy Broadway tickets, you will discover the Venn diagram has a big fat center. In other words, the people who won't get vaccinated are not a significant factor in the market.

I am optimistic.
