This is one of those questions where i hope no one gives you useful answers. But this confirms my doubts that lot of ignorant americans are going to be all over and partying and spreading covid this weekend.

In MA, short term rentals won’t be allowed until we hit phase 2 of reopening (phase 1 just started this week), but I wouldn’t be surprised if you find someone who will rent to you anyway. If you do go, and you bring all of your food/groceries for the weekend, and stay home/socially distant from others (eg dont go to any stores) during the trip, it doesn’t feel like it would really pose a risk. On the other hand if you show up to a small town with out of state plates (read: New York or New Jersey) on a holiday weekend during a pandemic, you might attract some negative attention from locals.

Each phase has basically “sub phases” and they’re saying each phase is a minimum of 3 weeks - likely to extend and always possible to roll back to an earlier phase of the numbers warrant it

Omg please keep in mind lots of upstate ny towns do not have infrastructure to support spreading this illness. Placed are opening up but areas like the Catskills or other desirable locations are still seeing high cases. I understand wanting to get out for a long weekend but there’s light at the end of the tunnel if we all put in the effort. Airbnb should be putting strict rules on no out of towners, no offense.

Also coming from someone FROM the Catskills. My parents are there and I haven’t even gone home to see them or stay. So really, stay where you are or go to a different state please if you really need to! Leave NY alone lol

Some small communities are giving out $1000 fines to renters and hosts. Not sure how it’s enforced, maybe neighborhood alert group or something.

Would not go to Rhode Island - they are pretty intense about people without of state plates driving around. My uncle lives in mass and has a business in RI he has a special pass to drive back and forth . I’d also stay away from Massachusetts given number of illnesses alone. Upstate NY is opening up (if you’re driving with NY plates this could be a good option). Vermont- idk would look up their status and see what the risks (fines/forced quarantine) could be.

I recently transitioned from Finance to Internal Audit. While I think this job is perfect for what I want during this stage of my career I feel like theres a stigma. Like this holiday during family zoom calls I'll tell relatives I stwrted a new job during WFH and when I mention it is Internal Audit I get mildly disgusted looks or "oh boy, I hate auditors" responses. Since the holiday season is almost over can you share how you respond to that? Or do you tell people you work "in compliance"?

Just a reminder we almost survived through 2021 and are already headed to the holiday season! Hope the year ends wonderfully for everyone 💃🕺
