As we slowly transition into a more normal lifestyle, due to the improved numbers of fully vaccinated Americans, there still are concerns that will exist until herd immunity is declared. Even then many older people fully vaccinated are still afraid of large crowds such as theaters, sports events, restaurants and religious facilities and that will impact the financial health of these institutions.
Another concern is that many small business needs staff and patrons now in the proper proportions as they are only surviving by a thread of self-sufficiency and no amount of federal aid will keep their doors open for long. Seniors represent a good percentage of their business. The burning question is how to encourage all to return safely and enjoy the pleasure of these small businesses for years to come. Time is not in their favor.
