HOW TO HOST A GET-TOGETHER
AS SAFE & GRACIOUSLY AS POSSIBLE

After months of quarantining and isolating and Zooming, many people are ready to socialize — even from afar — with other humans. Warmer weather has brought a trickle of impromptu socially distanced gatherings, whether driveway drinks or alley happy hours. Apartment dwellers have sought out park benches to meet for coffee. Faced with job losses, loneliness and the collective anxiety of a world turned upside down, many of us are getting desperate for some meaningful interaction with friends. 

But is it possible to party in a pandemic? 
First, we should share the latest official guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: They note that virtual get-togethers carry the lowest risk, with “more risk” associated with “smaller outdoor and in-person gatherings in which individuals from different households remain spaced at least 6 feet apart, wear cloth face coverings, do not share objects, and come from the same local area (e.g., community, town, city, or county).” And they advise anyone hosting a cookout to “encourage people to bring their own food and drinks and identify one person to serve shareable items.”

DID YOU KNOW?

🏠 DID YOU KNOW?

As new Coronavirus cases continue to soar in the USA (57,000 new cases yesterday alone), we should expect a new relief/stimulus package later in July when the senate returns from vacation around July 20th. (CNBC)

🏠 DID YOU KNOW? 

Mortgage rates reached a new all-time-low: The average rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.07%, down from 3.13% the week prior and 3.75% a year ago this time. That is a roughly $200 per month savings on a $500,000 mortgage.

🏠 DID YOU KNOW? 

 Competition is good! With over 50 electric-based cars on the market today, TESLA stock continues to soar and the company has become more valuable than Toyota! Over-valued? Austin is definatiely listening – as their plant could be near Riverside Drive!!!

🏠 DID YOU KNOW? 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the U.S. added a meaty 4.8 million jobs in June, dropping the unemployment rate to 11.1%. Those jobs returned to industries that took the hardest hits—more than 40% (2.1 million jobs) were in leisure and hospitality. Food services added about 1.5 million.  

🏠 DID YOU KNOW? 

Chinese stocks have rallied to a five-year peak on growing evidence the world’s biggest emerging market is recovering from the coronavirus blow. The CSI 300 benchmark index of Shanghai and Shenzhen-listed shares rose 1.9% to end the week at its highest level since June 2015. Further signs of a rebound in the economy boosted sentiment as China indicates it has contained the spread of Covid-19 to some degree. (FT)

HAMILTON ON DISNEY+ 

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s epic musical has officially arrived on Disney+, the biggest debut on the platform since The Mandalorian’s 15 minutes of Baby Yoda fame. 

*Note: Hamilton’s not a made-for-TV movie, but rather a recording of the show from a pair of live performances in 2016.
