What will happen when we go back to normal life? I’m assuming COVID won’t be completely gone, so how will it be controlled?

This is why I’m skeptical of the so called “v shape recovery”. I think people are still going to be very hesitant to travel.

Normal life? Economists are now talking about a global depression. I’m praying that’s wrong. But I don’t think we are heading back to “normal” any time soon.

We all need to eventually get back to normal lives. People will die in the low single digits. That’s awful but a prolonged global depression is much worse of a problem.

With no lockdown, the deaths would be way worse...probably in the hundred of thousands to millions. I don’t see the economy doing great in that regardless if it is locked down. I think what a lot of people are failing to realize is that if it got way worse than it is now without any lockdown or controls at all...people would likely avoid going out on their own accord. The idea of a lockdown is to hopefully make it briefer and less horrific than it already is so that when it passes we can recover faster. I think a lockdown is actually better for the economy long term.

It's been around 14 weeks since I filed my tax returns along with a new ITIN application for my wife through an in person appointment at the local Chicago office. My profile is still not available on the "Where's my refund" page. Called the ITIN helpline couple weeks back and they said neither application was in the system yet and this could be due to covid processing delays. Anyone else facing lengthy delays for ITIN / tax refunds. Thanks!

Hello! Do you guys have any tips about working out the first thing in the morning at home?
