(Austonia reader poll)

The coronavirus pandemic has altered or canceled summer plans for many. We asked you earlier this week, "What are your travel plans this summer?" The majority voted "staying home."


Of the readers who responded, 45% said they were "staying home" to be safe and have a "staycation," as one person wrote.

"Due to the recent resurgence of cases and lack of leadership by anyone, anywhere, it seems the safest thing to do for ourselves and our extended family is to stay put," one reader said.

At 29%, "driving somewhere" was the second-most selected choice. Readers said their plans included road-tripping to different states across the country, including Colorado, New Mexico and Vermont.

One reader wrote, "Driving to Aspen, CO with family for change in scenery—and weather—for the month of August. One of the benefits of working remotely is that you can do it anywhere."

"Flying somewhere" was the answer from 18% of readers. Some are also going to Colorado and other states, but choosing to fly.

A reader who commented said: "Flying to our Colorado house. Leaving the silly city mayor, local politics and heat behind."

Lastly, at 7%, there are those who are unsure of what this summer holds for them with the current state of the pandemic.

"Planned a trip to Colorado in August, but with a second wave, it may not happen now out of concern for safety," a reader stated.
