As hard as COVID-19 has been on travelers, imagine how difficult this year has been for businesses and organizations in the travel industry. Those that rely on travelers visiting and spending money — hotels, restaurants, bars, tour guides, and even museums — are all really struggling. No one knows what the travel industry will look like once we’re on the other side of the pandemic, and, of course, we hope for the best with a quick return to a new normal, but we know that the travel industry will see changes for a very long time.
