One of the most asked questions I have received lately is when can we vacation again. At this point planning travel and taking a vacation is a very personal decision. You have to take into account your personal circumstances and figure out what your comfort level is and what is best for you and your family.
A couple of questions to ask yourself are: Are you ok with wearing a mask on vacation? Do you mind social distancing and doing things in a smaller group?

You will most likely not get the full vacation experience. Are you ok with that as well?
