  1. Many of the schools started later and will end earlier. It seemed to me that there were more college age people around FMB the past few weeks than normal for this time of year. But nowhere near spring break levels. Canada’s border is also closed, as I understand, so we won’t have that group here either. But, I expect since the crowds will be smaller, we could see more locals venturing out that time if year than normal. Again, not at spring break levels, but I think it could recoup some of the list revenue.

  2. Going to be interesting to follow how it affects businesses. Vacancies will be filled by other vacationers, I assume.
