Americans Battle Pandemic Fatigue as COVID Cases Surge

VOA says Last year, tens of millions of Americans were forced to abandon holiday travel plans due to the surging coronavirus pandemic. This year, more than 100 million estimated travelers nationwide nervously watch a persistent delta variant and a recently discovered omicron variant threaten gatherings once again.

“I haven’t seen my mother in a year, and I can’t imagine a world in which I can’t go home to see her for the holidays,” said Autumn Town, a New Orleans resident and co-owner of Pete’s Out in the Cold, a local bar. “We’re changing our plans a little — we won’t go out to restaurants like we normally might. But I get so few chances to see family already, I refuse to miss this one.”

New Orleans is a major tourist destination, and Town said many small businesses thrive on the increased tourism the holiday season brings. Like many locals, she said she’s torn over the best way to proceed as COVID-19 numbers rise again.
