Starting at McK (NA) next month and my training just moved from in-person to virtual - are you all seeing a decline in business travel because of covid concerns? I'd heard that a lot of teams had started to travel over the past few months

Yes, a lot of teams started to travel or at least go into the office together. Definitely nowhere near the majority, but quite a few.

This week we reimplemented mask and distancing requirements in the offices, so I imagine, yes we will be seeing a slowdown in traveling yet again

Which office?

16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby.

My husband is a doctor and is getting offers from both cities as well as smaller towns/more rural spots. One place we're considering is a very small city but is close to mid-sized city and an airport to travel elsewhere. We currently live in a big HCOL
The weird thing about his job is that he gets paid way more in smaller cities and towns over bigger, more known city. Given that he would get paid more and the COL is lower, we're thinking maybe we should consider a smaller city. Contd
