I did decide this morning to cancel my planned trip for late October. The signs are simply not looking positive, and my fear was that even if things temporarily improved in September, allowing for some relaxation of admission requirements, there might be another surge after the holidays leading to another closure. While my knee replacement surgery on Monday when very well, there is an enormous amount of pain and a lot of effort that I have to devote for my rehab. I need to focus on that and not worrying about a decision a few weeks from now. It was easier to make the decision now, since it looked pretty obvious in any event.
I wish all of you planning trips this fall or later luck, and we will travel again. It is just a very difficult time.
