Our country is going through massive shifts due to COVID-19

About a fifth of U.S. adults moved due to COVID-19 or know someone who did
Millions of Americans relocated this year because of the COVID-19 outbreak, moving out of college dorms that abruptly closed, communities they perceive as unsafe or housing they can no longer afford. Overall, around one-in-five U.S. adults (22%) say they either changed their residence due to the pandemic or know someone who did, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.

Among those surveyed in early June, 3% say they themselves moved permanently or temporarily due to the coronavirus pandemic, and 6% say someone moved into their household because of it. (Some had more than one of these things happen.) An additional 14% of those who did not personally experience relocation say they know someone else who moved.

Experiences with coronavirus-related relocations vary by demographic characteristics. The age group most likely to have had at least one of these things happen to them are the nationís young adults: Overall, 37% of those ages 18 to 29 say they moved, someone moved into their home or they know someone who moved because of the outbreak. By race and ethnicity, 28% of Hispanics have had one of these experiences, compared with 20% of white adults, 19% of Black adults and 24% of Asian Americans.

4. That was my first thought as well

Seems trivial when dealing with everything else, but itís literally life and death.

3. And we haven't seen anything yet

Evictions and foreclosures are still suspended for a lot of areas, for now.

5. COVID has turned our whole way of life upside down and inside out.

It's going to take a long time to repair all the damage that's been caused by this thing. Decades even.
