My agency had layoffs & told an AS that they “support” him changing his own title to Account Director for job searching purposes. He’s been an AS for 3yrs here+5yrs prev job. Should I say something??

We are currently pregnant and at 20 weeks. My husbands was about to tell his manager about the pregnancy and paternity leave plans but then started to hear some layoff rumors which now seems inevitable. His project also did’t get extended (totally unexpected) and his team is getting released at the current client. Now he is unsure of if and when he should let his manager know. He does not want it to backfire on him. Suggestions?
What do you do on the rare occasion when you have virtually no work?
Summer was busy with lots of long days and a handful of weekends. But I’ve had essentially zero to do all week.
Part of me feels guilty but then again I don’t because I don’t think my agency feels guilty for the long days/weekends.
On the other hand, we just had a round of layoffs so who knows if there are more coming down the pipeline.
Today’s headline: 3.9% unemployment.
Meanwhile on fishbowl, 5+ posts about people getting laid off in the last 24 hours.

How far do you live from your office / where you practice? I’m a solo with a land use / zoning practice. I’ve always lived in the same city I worked. Unrelated to Covid, my city has moved all filing and permitting to online systems which means I only have to be in person about 4-6 days a month. I’m thinking about moving about 40 minutes outside the city (and potentially as much as 1.5 hrs from evening meetings). Reasonable? Way too far?
I'm in Miami for a few days. Recommendations on things to do, restaurants, and nightlife? I've done most of the tourist things. Not looking for crowded clubs.
