Restauranter overstyrer vanligvis i varme værmåneder, men ikke i år

Sommeren er den travleste sesongen for de fleste restauranter, men mer enn 510 000 jobber som vanligvis legges til i bransjen vil angivelig ikke være der i år på grunn av virkningene av koronaviruspandemien. Ifølge National Restaurant Association ville disse stillingene normalt bli besatt av en bred demografisk gruppe, inkludert tenåringer, studenter, lærere og til og med pensjonister.

I nyere forskning fra bransjeforbundet sa halvparten av de spurte voksne at deres første faste jobb var i restaurantbransjen. Imidlertid kan førstegangssøkere i 2020 ikke ha muligheten til å bli vertinne, server, bartender, kokk og så videre, og så videre.

Sommerrestauranten begynner vanligvis i april, med topp sysselsettingsnummer i New York - episenteret for koronavirus i USA - etterfulgt av California, Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia og South Carolina. I år slo de samme statene sammen til å miste mer enn 2,5 millioner restaurantjobber bare i april.

Selv om restauranter har opplevd store tap under pandemien, opplever andre næringer ekstreme vanskeligheter også. Ifølge Arbeidsdepartementet er mer enn 30 millioner amerikanere arbeidsledige, og disse jobbene ble mest påvirket av koronaviruspandemien.


Hvordan koronaviruspandemien har "desimert" velværeturismeindustrien

For å motvirke karantene, er det en høyere premie enn noensinne på "velvære" - søken etter mental og fysisk opplysning - men under koronaviruspandemien teller dusjing eller dyp pusting. Og selv om det er virtuelle fotturer, har yoga og meditasjon for å holde folk tilregnelige, velværesorter og retreater, som tilbyr fysisk og ofte overdådig pusterom, blitt mørkere etter hvert som reisestopp og behovet for bare nødvendigheter blir dypere.

Velværeturisme, anslagsvis 919 milliarder dollar næring i 2022, gjør vondt. "Jeg har ingen data om hvor mye velvære turisme som er skadet av koronavirus, men som alle reiser blir det desimert," sier Beth McGroarty, visepresident og direktør for forskning og PR ved Global Wellness Institute, til Yahoo Life og legger til at 830 millioner velværeturer ble tatt i 2017 (691 millioner flere siden 2015, til sammenligning).

Det er bare åtte bekreftede koronavirus -tilfeller i Watauga County, NC, fra 21. april, men Art of Living Retreat Center i Blue Ridge Mountains stengte 13. mars, en forholdsregel som førte til et tap på 1 million dollar i virksomheten, ifølge Kimberly Rossi, direktør for forretningsutvikling. "Det har vært en betydelig økonomisk innvirkning," sier Rossi til Yahoo Life og legger til at omtrent 2000 gjester ble refundert eller planlagt, og et helhetlig medisinsk stevne for 500 deltakere ble kansellert.

Senteret tok raskt sine signaturprogrammer på nettet: en $ 495 Happiness Retreat sentrert om en beroligende pusteteknikk ble redusert til $ 190 online i april måned, en rensing på stedet for å "tilbakestille fordøyelsessystemet" ble redusert til selvmassasje og en enkel diett- og videoopplæringer om “Alternativ neseboring”, og sunne oppskrifter ble gjort tilgjengelige.

"Tanken er å ha en dedikert tilstedeværelse og levere et produkt som er bedre enn ingenting, men heller ikke den fulle opplevelsen," sier Rossi. Virksomheten er stengt til minst 30. april, og reservasjonene i mai er begrenset, selv om Rossi sier at folk booker om for senere datoer. Fremover vil senteret utrydde felles yoga -tepper og matter og be gjestene om å ta med eget eller kjøpe ved ankomst.

BodyHoliday i St. Lucia, som lover "Gi oss kroppen din i en uke, så gir vi deg tilbake," stengte 20. mars, og oppsagte 400 ansatte midlertidig og frafalt avbestillingsgebyr, men luksushotellet med alt inkludert planlegger allerede en fremtid etter COVID-19.

"Når våre gjester kommer ut av isolasjon, hvordan kan vi få dem til å føle seg ivaretatt?" administrerende direktør Andrew Barnard forteller Yahoo Life. Eiendommen, som åpner igjen 1. juni, planlegger å tilby sengetøy i sykehusklasse, en forenklet restaurantmeny for å redusere "stressutløsere" forbundet med valg av overbelastning og full åpenhet om hygieneprotokollen.

I Quebec by, Canada, vil ansatte ved Le Monastère des Augustine velværespa og hotell vanligvis administrere massasje og lede qigong -klasser, men siden pandemien er sykehuset som ble grunnlagt av franske augustinske nonner midlertidig på et nytt oppdrag.

Siden den ble stengt 12. mars, er den historiske eiendommen nå et gratis ly for foreldre til syke eller dødelig syke barn med kreft. Direktør Isabelle Duchesnewau endret kurs etter en flom av avbestillinger av gjester og lærte fra et lokalt sykehus at foreldre - noen av dem som reiste lange avstander for medisinsk behandling - ikke hadde noe sted å sove under barnas behandlinger.

"Vi har omtrent 10 foreldre i senteret, men det er plass til 32," sier Duchesnewau til Yahoo Life. "De kan bli så lenge de trenger." Senteret leter også etter måter å hjelpe førstehjelpere, som Duchesnewau kaller "engler", for å lette den psykiske belastningen av koronaviruset og hedre senterets arv. "Selv uten spa -tjenester og restauranten," sier hun, "er dette ren velvære."

Og gjester på Sensei Lana’i, et Four Seasons Resort på Hawaii kan ikke nyte termisk kroppskartlegging, vannterapi og Lomi Lomi-massasje akkurat nå, men noen ansatte deltar i virtuelle yoga-, trenings- og meditasjonstimer på Zoom. Trivselsretreatet gir også mat som er dyrket på Sensei Farms (normalt brukt på feriestedets restaurant Sensei av Nobu) til ansatte og lokale innbyggere i nød. "I vår high-touch spa og velvære retreats virksomhet, må vi reagere på et marked som har blitt tvunget til å røre mindre," sier Sensei-sjef Kevin Kelly til Yahoo Life. "Så, Sensei må utvikle nye protokoller og stole mer på vitenskap og teknologi for å gjøre justeringer i vår velværeprogrammering."

Åtte kunder som meldte seg på en syv netters marsferie til Beyond: Yoga Retreat i Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, gjennom Revive Restorative Retreats, valgte å planlegge for en fremtidig dato (en konsesjon gjort av Beyond: Yoga Retreat i lys av COVID-19, en talsperson for feriestedet forteller Yahoo Life), mens ni andre forsiktig tok fatt på turen og betalte alt fra $ 10000 til $ 2500 for å trene Bodyart og MELT Method -trening.

Ifølge arrangørene var det på tidspunktet for turen 14. mars ingen rapporterte tilfeller av koronavirus i nærområdet. Yahoo Life klarte ikke umiddelbart å verifisere antall tilfeller i Puerto Vallarta på det tidspunktet, selv om Mexico bekreftet de to første sakene 27. februar.

Fra morgenen 21. april hadde Mexico 8772 rapporterte tilfeller av COVID-19 og 712 dødsfall, ifølge Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center. Men Mexicos viseminister for helse Hugo Lopez-Gatell hadde estimert 8. april at pandemiens innvirkning kan være "åtte ganger større."

"Det var denne rare tiden for å nyte et tropisk paradis mens du prøvde å overvåke viruset," sier medstifter Marisa Merliss i New York til Yahoo Life. Etter å ha kommet hjem, legger medgründer Becca Pace til, noen ble dømt av familiemedlemmer for å "egoistisk" ta utflukten.

Det er for tidlig å vite om selskapets novemberreise til Ubud, Bali, vil skje med pandemien før Revive kunne begynne å annonsere, så kvinnene underviser i donasjonsbaserte treningsøkter online, mens Merliss, en registrert sykepleier, jobber to skift i måneden ved NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Revive kansellerte lokale "mini-retreater" i april og mai, men vurderer en "virtuell retrett" på flere dager og en mulig pandemisk beredskapsplan hvis koronaviruset blir sesongbasert, som spekulert av noen eksperter.

Det er imidlertid håp om bedring. "Jeg er forsiktig optimistisk med tanke på at når vi alle begynner å reise igjen, vil vår personlige helse og sikkerhet være sentralt, og at velværesreiser vil være en av de første sektorene i reiselivsnæringen for å komme seg," sa Anne Dimon, president for forteller Wellness Tourism Association til Yahoo Life.

McGroarty sier: "Folk fantaserer om velværet sine reiser etter virus-lockdown over sosiale medier. Etter hvert som reiser åpner seg igjen, bør velværeturisme gjøre det spesielt bra. ” Hun legger til at avsidesliggende destinasjoner designet for sosial distansering og forventningen til naturen og frisk luft er oppmuntrende.

"Når folk føler seg komfortable med å sette seg på et fly og sitte ved siden av en fremmed, vil vi se en gradvis gjenoppbygging av reiselivsnæringen," sier Barnard. "Velværeindustrien er godt klar fordi folk vil trenge det mer enn noensinne. Men det blir en langsom stigning. ”

Fra morgenen 21. april hadde Mexico 8772 rapporterte tilfeller av COVID-19 og 712 dødsfall, ifølge Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center. Men Mexicos viseminister for helse Hugo Lopez-Gatell hadde estimert 8. april at pandemiens innvirkning kan være "åtte ganger større."

"Det var denne rare tiden for å nyte et tropisk paradis mens du prøvde å overvåke viruset," sier medstifter Marisa Merliss i New York til Yahoo Life. Etter å ha kommet hjem, legger medgründer Becca Pace til, noen ble dømt av familiemedlemmer for å "egoistisk" ta utflukten.

Det er for tidlig å vite om selskapets novemberreise til Ubud, Bali, vil skje med pandemien før Revive kunne begynne å annonsere, så kvinnene underviser i donasjonsbaserte treningsøkter online, mens Merliss, en registrert sykepleier, jobber to skift i måneden ved NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Revive kansellerte lokale "mini-retreater" i april og mai, men vurderer en "virtuell retrett" på flere dager og en mulig pandemisk beredskapsplan hvis koronaviruset blir sesongbasert, som spekulert av noen eksperter.

Det er imidlertid håp om bedring. “I am being cautiously optimistic that when we all begin traveling again, our personal health and safety will be top of mind, and that wellness travel will be one of the first sectors of the tourism industry to recover,” Anne Dimon, the president of the Wellness Tourism Association tells Yahoo Life.

McGroarty says, “People are fantasizing about their wellness travels post-virus lockdown all over social media. As travel opens up again, wellness tourism should do especially well.” She adds that remote destinations designed for social distancing and the anticipation of nature and fresh air is encouraging.

“When people feel comfortable getting on a plane and sitting next to a stranger, we’ll see a gradual rebuilding of the travel industry,” says Barnard. “The wellness industry is well-poised because people will need it more than ever. But it will be a slow climb.”


How the coronavirus pandemic has 'decimated' the wellness tourism industry

To counterbalance quarantine life, there is a higher premium than ever on “wellness” — the quest for mental and physical enlightenment — but during the coronavirus pandemic, showering or deep breathing counts. And while there are virtual hikes, yoga and meditation to keep people sane, wellness resorts and retreats, which offer physical and often-opulent respite, have gone dark as travel halts and the need for bare necessities deepens.

Wellness tourism, an estimated $919 billion industry by 2022, is hurting. “I do not have any data on how much wellness tourism is hurt by coronavirus, but like all travel, it’s decimated,” Beth McGroarty, vice president and director of research and PR at the Global Wellness Institute, tells Yahoo Life, adding that 830 million wellness trips were taken in 2017 (691 million more since 2015, for comparison).

There are only eight confirmed coronavirus cases in Watauga County, N.C., as of April 21, but the Art of Living Retreat Center in the Blue Ridge Mountains shut down on March 13, a precaution that led to a $1 million loss in business, according to Kimberly Rossi, director of business development. “There has been a significant financial impact,” Rossi tells Yahoo Life, adding that approximately 2,000 guests were refunded or rescheduled, and a 500-attendee holistic medical convention was canceled.

The center quickly took its signature programs online: a $495 Happiness Retreat centered on a calming breathing technique was reduced to $190 online for the month of April, an onsite cleanse to “reset the digestive system” was pared down to self-massage and a simple diet and video tutorials on “Alternate Nostril Breathing,” and healthy recipes were made available.

“The idea is to have a dedicated presence and deliver a product which is better than nothing but also not the full experience,” says Rossi. Business is closed until at least April 30, and May reservations are in limbo, although Rossi says people are rebooking for later dates. Going forward, the center will eradicate communal yoga blankets and mats and ask guests to bring their own or purchase upon arrival.

BodyHoliday in St. Lucia, which promises “Give us your body for a week and we’ll give you back your mind,” closed on March 20, temporarily laid off 400 employees and waived guest cancellation fees, but the all-inclusive luxury resort is already planning for a post-COVID-19 future.

“When our guests come out of isolation, how can we make them feel cared for?” executive director Andrew Barnard tells Yahoo Life. The property, set to reopen on June 1, plans to provide hospital-grade bed linens, a simplified restaurant menu to reduce “stress triggers” associated with choice overload and full transparency of its hygienic protocol.

In Quebec City, Canada, employees at the Le Monastère des Augustine wellness spa and hotel would typically be administering massages and leading qigong classes, but since the pandemic, the hospital founded by French Augustinian nuns is temporarily on a new mission.

Since closing on March 12, the historic property is now a free shelter for parents of sick or terminally ill children with cancer. Director Isabelle Duchesnewau changed course after a flood of guest cancellations and learning from a local hospital that parents — some of whom who traveled long distances for medical care — had nowhere to sleep during their children’s treatments.

“We have about 10 parents at the center, but there is room for 32,” Duchesnewau tells Yahoo Life. “They can stay for as long as they need.” The center is also looking for ways to help first responders, who Duchesnewau calls “angels,” to ease the mental strain of the coronavirus and honor the center’s legacy. “Even without spa services and the restaurant,” she says, “this is pure wellness.”

And guests of Sensei Lana’i, a Four Seasons Resort in Hawaii cannot enjoy thermal body mapping, aqua-therapy and Lomi Lomi massage right now, but some staff partake of virtual yoga, fitness and meditation classes on Zoom. The well-being retreat is also providing food grown at Sensei Farms (normally used at the resort’s restaurant Sensei by Nobu) to employees and local residents in need. “In our high-touch spa and wellness retreats business, we will need to respond to a market that has been forced to touch less,” Sensei CEO Kevin Kelly tells Yahoo Life. “So, Sensei will need to develop new protocols and rely more heavily on science and technology to make adjustments to our wellness programming.”

Eight customers who signed up for a seven-night March getaway to Beyond: Yoga Retreat in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, through Revive Restorative Retreats chose to reschedule for a future date (a concession made by Beyond: Yoga Retreat in light of COVID-19, a resort spokesperson tells Yahoo Life), while nine others cautiously embarked on the trip paying anywhere from $1,100 to $2,500 to practice Bodyart and MELT Method training.

According to the organizers, at the time of the March 14 trip, there were no reported coronavirus cases in the immediate region. Yahoo Life was not immediately able to verify the number of cases in Puerto Vallarta at that time, although Mexico confirmed its first two cases on Feb. 27.

As of the morning of April 21, Mexico had 8,772 reported COVID-19 cases and 712 deaths, according to the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center. But Mexico’s Deputy Health Minister Hugo Lopez-Gatell had estimated on April 8 that the pandemic’s impact may be “eight times bigger.”

“It was this weird time of enjoying a tropical paradise while trying to monitor the virus,” co-founder Marisa Merliss of New York tells Yahoo Life. After returning home, adds co-founder Becca Pace, some were judged by family members for “selfishly” taking the excursion.

It’s too soon to know whether the company’s November trip to Ubud, Bali, will happen the pandemic hit before Revive could start advertising, so the women are teaching donation-based online fitness classes, while Merliss, a registered nurse, works two shifts per month at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Revive canceled local “mini-retreats” in April and May but is considering a multi-day “virtual retreat” and a possible pandemic contingency plan if the coronavirus turns seasonal, as speculated by some experts.

However, there is hope for recovery. “I am being cautiously optimistic that when we all begin traveling again, our personal health and safety will be top of mind, and that wellness travel will be one of the first sectors of the tourism industry to recover,” Anne Dimon, the president of the Wellness Tourism Association tells Yahoo Life.

According to the organizers, at the time of the March 14 trip, there were no reported coronavirus cases in the immediate region. Yahoo Life was not immediately able to verify the number of cases in Puerto Vallarta at that time, although Mexico confirmed its first two cases on Feb. 27.

As of the morning of April 21, Mexico had 8,772 reported COVID-19 cases and 712 deaths, according to the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center. But Mexico’s Deputy Health Minister Hugo Lopez-Gatell had estimated on April 8 that the pandemic’s impact may be “eight times bigger.”

“It was this weird time of enjoying a tropical paradise while trying to monitor the virus,” co-founder Marisa Merliss of New York tells Yahoo Life. After returning home, adds co-founder Becca Pace, some were judged by family members for “selfishly” taking the excursion.

It’s too soon to know whether the company’s November trip to Ubud, Bali, will happen the pandemic hit before Revive could start advertising, so the women are teaching donation-based online fitness classes, while Merliss, a registered nurse, works two shifts per month at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Revive canceled local “mini-retreats” in April and May but is considering a multi-day “virtual retreat” and a possible pandemic contingency plan if the coronavirus turns seasonal, as speculated by some experts.

However, there is hope for recovery. “I am being cautiously optimistic that when we all begin traveling again, our personal health and safety will be top of mind, and that wellness travel will be one of the first sectors of the tourism industry to recover,” Anne Dimon, the president of the Wellness Tourism Association tells Yahoo Life.

McGroarty says, “People are fantasizing about their wellness travels post-virus lockdown all over social media. As travel opens up again, wellness tourism should do especially well.” She adds that remote destinations designed for social distancing and the anticipation of nature and fresh air is encouraging.

“When people feel comfortable getting on a plane and sitting next to a stranger, we’ll see a gradual rebuilding of the travel industry,” says Barnard. “The wellness industry is well-poised because people will need it more than ever. But it will be a slow climb.”


How the coronavirus pandemic has 'decimated' the wellness tourism industry

To counterbalance quarantine life, there is a higher premium than ever on “wellness” — the quest for mental and physical enlightenment — but during the coronavirus pandemic, showering or deep breathing counts. And while there are virtual hikes, yoga and meditation to keep people sane, wellness resorts and retreats, which offer physical and often-opulent respite, have gone dark as travel halts and the need for bare necessities deepens.

Wellness tourism, an estimated $919 billion industry by 2022, is hurting. “I do not have any data on how much wellness tourism is hurt by coronavirus, but like all travel, it’s decimated,” Beth McGroarty, vice president and director of research and PR at the Global Wellness Institute, tells Yahoo Life, adding that 830 million wellness trips were taken in 2017 (691 million more since 2015, for comparison).

There are only eight confirmed coronavirus cases in Watauga County, N.C., as of April 21, but the Art of Living Retreat Center in the Blue Ridge Mountains shut down on March 13, a precaution that led to a $1 million loss in business, according to Kimberly Rossi, director of business development. “There has been a significant financial impact,” Rossi tells Yahoo Life, adding that approximately 2,000 guests were refunded or rescheduled, and a 500-attendee holistic medical convention was canceled.

The center quickly took its signature programs online: a $495 Happiness Retreat centered on a calming breathing technique was reduced to $190 online for the month of April, an onsite cleanse to “reset the digestive system” was pared down to self-massage and a simple diet and video tutorials on “Alternate Nostril Breathing,” and healthy recipes were made available.

“The idea is to have a dedicated presence and deliver a product which is better than nothing but also not the full experience,” says Rossi. Business is closed until at least April 30, and May reservations are in limbo, although Rossi says people are rebooking for later dates. Going forward, the center will eradicate communal yoga blankets and mats and ask guests to bring their own or purchase upon arrival.

BodyHoliday in St. Lucia, which promises “Give us your body for a week and we’ll give you back your mind,” closed on March 20, temporarily laid off 400 employees and waived guest cancellation fees, but the all-inclusive luxury resort is already planning for a post-COVID-19 future.

“When our guests come out of isolation, how can we make them feel cared for?” executive director Andrew Barnard tells Yahoo Life. The property, set to reopen on June 1, plans to provide hospital-grade bed linens, a simplified restaurant menu to reduce “stress triggers” associated with choice overload and full transparency of its hygienic protocol.

In Quebec City, Canada, employees at the Le Monastère des Augustine wellness spa and hotel would typically be administering massages and leading qigong classes, but since the pandemic, the hospital founded by French Augustinian nuns is temporarily on a new mission.

Since closing on March 12, the historic property is now a free shelter for parents of sick or terminally ill children with cancer. Director Isabelle Duchesnewau changed course after a flood of guest cancellations and learning from a local hospital that parents — some of whom who traveled long distances for medical care — had nowhere to sleep during their children’s treatments.

“We have about 10 parents at the center, but there is room for 32,” Duchesnewau tells Yahoo Life. “They can stay for as long as they need.” The center is also looking for ways to help first responders, who Duchesnewau calls “angels,” to ease the mental strain of the coronavirus and honor the center’s legacy. “Even without spa services and the restaurant,” she says, “this is pure wellness.”

And guests of Sensei Lana’i, a Four Seasons Resort in Hawaii cannot enjoy thermal body mapping, aqua-therapy and Lomi Lomi massage right now, but some staff partake of virtual yoga, fitness and meditation classes on Zoom. The well-being retreat is also providing food grown at Sensei Farms (normally used at the resort’s restaurant Sensei by Nobu) to employees and local residents in need. "I vår high-touch spa og velvære retreats virksomhet, må vi reagere på et marked som har blitt tvunget til å røre mindre," sier Sensei-sjef Kevin Kelly til Yahoo Life. "Så, Sensei må utvikle nye protokoller og stole mer på vitenskap og teknologi for å gjøre justeringer i vår velværeprogrammering."

Åtte kunder som meldte seg på en syv netters marsferie til Beyond: Yoga Retreat i Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, gjennom Revive Restorative Retreats, valgte å planlegge for en fremtidig dato (en konsesjon gjort av Beyond: Yoga Retreat i lys av COVID-19, en talsperson for feriestedet forteller Yahoo Life), mens ni andre forsiktig tok fatt på turen og betalte alt fra $ 10000 til $ 2500 for å trene Bodyart og MELT Method -trening.

Ifølge arrangørene var det på tidspunktet for turen 14. mars ingen rapporterte tilfeller av koronavirus i nærområdet. Yahoo Life klarte ikke umiddelbart å verifisere antall tilfeller i Puerto Vallarta på det tidspunktet, selv om Mexico bekreftet de to første sakene 27. februar.

Fra morgenen 21. april hadde Mexico 8772 rapporterte tilfeller av COVID-19 og 712 dødsfall, ifølge Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center. Men Mexicos viseminister for helse Hugo Lopez-Gatell hadde estimert 8. april at pandemiens innvirkning kan være "åtte ganger større."

"Det var denne rare tiden for å nyte et tropisk paradis mens du prøvde å overvåke viruset," sier medstifter Marisa Merliss i New York til Yahoo Life. Etter å ha kommet hjem, legger medgründer Becca Pace til, noen ble dømt av familiemedlemmer for å "egoistisk" ta utflukten.

Det er for tidlig å vite om selskapets novemberreise til Ubud, Bali, vil skje med pandemien før Revive kunne begynne å annonsere, så kvinnene underviser i donasjonsbaserte treningsøkter online, mens Merliss, en registrert sykepleier, jobber to skift i måneden ved NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Revive kansellerte lokale "mini-retreater" i april og mai, men vurderer en "virtuell retrett" på flere dager og en mulig pandemisk beredskapsplan hvis koronaviruset blir sesongbasert, som spekulert av noen eksperter.

Det er imidlertid håp om bedring. "Jeg er forsiktig optimistisk med tanke på at når vi alle begynner å reise igjen, vil vår personlige helse og sikkerhet være sentralt, og at velværesreiser vil være en av de første sektorene i reiselivsnæringen som kommer seg," sa Anne Dimon, president for forteller Wellness Tourism Association til Yahoo Life.

McGroarty sier, "Folk fantaserer om velværet sine reiser etter virus-lockdown over sosiale medier. Etter hvert som reiser åpner seg igjen, bør velværeturisme gjøre det spesielt bra. ” Hun legger til at eksterne destinasjoner designet for sosial distansering og forventning til naturen og frisk luft er oppmuntrende.

"Når folk føler seg komfortable med å sette seg på et fly og sitte ved siden av en fremmed, vil vi se en gradvis gjenoppbygging av reiselivsnæringen," sier Barnard. "Velværeindustrien er godt klar fordi folk vil trenge det mer enn noen gang. Men det blir en langsom stigning. ”
