Covid is on a roll everywhere it seems. I don't feel it much myself as the community I live in is declared Covid free and has been so since April/May, but we had same tendencies here - the cities where the universities are located had a rapid increase when universities started up and are now back to at least partly lockdown again. But 2nd wave seems to be on retrait too. Travelling to see my mother in the summer vacation was a bit more interesting than usual - drove my own car, so no worries there, but I actually emphasized having stopovers in Covid free (or -low) communities and the hand disinfection spray is permanently placed in the "pocket" of the inside of the door next to the driver's seat . My mother is 82 and has slightly reduced lung capacity so I surely didn't want to bring with me any bugs there. Fortunately the community she lives in has been almost Covid free too so she can move quite freely around and so could I. I even had a lot of nice cafe visits with my cousins. Hand disinfection and some free space to neighbouring tables was sufficient. I admit I was a little less careful on my way back home but even then I decided not to stop in any "red" or "dark orange" counties. I do not want to be the one who is bringing Covid back home either.
