Recognizing none of us know what the future will bring, can you speculate about whether or not current safety protocols (self-isolation, mask use, physical distancing, plexiglass dividers etc) will likely be in place as we transition from summer months into the fall?

In workplaces where there is a high degree of contact with the nature of work being in small spaces, those safety plans will continue for some time. Workplaces where we may see some relaxing of that would be outdoor spaces, recreational context. Workplaces that have been in a higher risk, even with vaccine coverage and hopefully diminished transmission at some time in the future, will still be important to keep the safety protocols in place; masking indoors, barriers in smaller spaces, all those aspects will be important. Covid will still be circulating in the population for some time, so the safety measures will not be scaled back anytime soon.
