If there is an effective vaccine with widespread availability that would obviously do it, but Iím willing to bet that if Biden is in come January, media attention drops off like a cliff and the constant drumbeat of statistics gives way to background noise and a slew of articles on how the Trump administration got us into this mess etc.unless there is an extreme NY level outbreak.

Business travel. If it's not pleasure it's a real inconvenience.

Why should I fly to China to meet someone if everything we discuss can be said over zoom? Why fly six times a year if I could just do two?

Why should my company have to spend so much on flights if we can arrange a virtual meeting?

life as we know it will never be the same
Lol
Itís already the same by most in NY NJ. ( Iím talking awareness, not what you can lawfully do.) Itís just a matter of time untill thereís a global immunity or a vaccine.
 Those that had their loved ones lost because of covid is another story (:

I voted other and wish to explain my opinion:

I think the board will be closed when new posts on the board dwindle beneath a certain monthly threshold. For example, if there is a month when there are only 10 new posts on the board, it's time for it to be closed. (Exact number of posts can be determined, or when mods think we hit that point.)

Now for the unasked question - what to do with the board? Disband it to other boards? Delete it?

I don't know the programming aspect of this, but if it would be feasible, I think a small link should be put at the bottom of DDF called "Dormant Boards," and clicking on it will bring up a list of all dormant boards.

Sure, COVID media attention in Israel and every other country is only to elect Biden.

Because you can't build trust over Zoom. And they've been saying this for decades.

Gam Zeh Yaavor. Nothing good or bad lasts forever.
Sometimes something can be so catastrophic that it turns the Roman Republic into the Dark Ages (even though it may take a while). Remember the food shortages, talk of the possible collapse of the electric grid?  Add riots to the equation, and it was very easy to imagine a collapse of the US.

I don't see much day to day benefit from video calling. Unless you are meeting someone new or few other cases the video is just distracting and doesnt add much to the conversation.

I'd wager that you're wrong. There will be an effective vaccine, it's only a question of how long it will take for it to be rolled out and for this to be over.
Perhaps it will need a booster, but that doesn't mean things won't go back to the old normal, more or less.

So you think just because there will be an effective vaccine at some point the world will return to its old ways?

While people have short memories, there are still certain areas where we have gone beyond the point of no return.

ROTFLMAO....

There's only one way out of this kind of a debt hole. It's been tried and tested for thousands of years. Hint (Though R&R don't seem to say thousands, only hundreds).

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Similar to not being able to buy suits and shoes without trying them on?

To all those saying a vaccine will end covid discussion. What makes you think both political parties will accept the vaccine?

Why?

Do they each have to put in their own specific strain of autism?

Zoom will never totally replace traveling for a face to face meeting. But there is a middle ground here and unlike before COVID, I think the necessity of each jaunt to China will be reassessed.

What specifically?
