It’s Ending ?

Yes for the majority of the US covid is basically over. At least from a work perspective.

My big regret is that I didn't pack up and just live in the rural southwest (from Northeast) for the duration of it. If only I knew how long it would be and didn't have so many possessions in my apartment. But can't change everything! A week or two in future plans and working a few days remotely can still be done with ease.
