How might COVID-19 change us: Part II

October 4, 2020

We have reached a strange moment in the COVID Era

On this episode of Friday Happy Hour, Dan Martin, Peter Ravella, and Tyler Buckingham get together again for another virtual happy hour and talk about how the COVID-19 era is progressing. We seem to be at an interesting moment. We are easing our way back into "regular" life, negotiating the risk calculations associated with going out and staying in. Beaches are opening back up, and people are packing coastlines without adherence to social distancing. What does this mean for the coastal economy and for coastal communities. How will this change the way we vacation? We discuss all this, and a bunch more, on this dark and stormy Friday Happy Hour
