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?

And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.
