Predictions for the “new normal” are a dime a dozen. A few weeks ago, they were nothing but hypotheses. Now as states reopen, we’re getting a preview of what the future might look like. But, it’s not yet clear.

Official policy is one thing, it changes instantly. Societal norms and individual tolerances are another, adjusting over time. For example, outdoor dining is available in 44 of 50 states. Only 40% of respondents have patronized a restaurant.
