I'm a "cut it to you straight" kind of guy. Tell me the worst case scenario, and I can accept it.

That said, I'm gonna say that this shit ain't gonna be right in May. It ain't gonna be right in June. Hell, it may not be right in July. And even then? EVEN THEN? There won't be a vaccine until 2021. We are, AT BEST, 12 months out from controlling this thing.
Personally? I'd rather know I'm in it for the long haul than think "business as usual" will kick in May 1 or June 1. We are, ABSOLUTELY 100%, deluding ourselves if we're looking for an outdate pre vaccine. We just are. And we're roughly 18 months out.
Summer 2020 is gone. There will be idiots who party like it's 1999, but they will be the outliers. Your travel plans, your vacations, your ideas of rejoining society, partying at bars, watching movies in a theatre and dinning out with hundreds of people? Poof. Gone.
Accept it. Until there's a vaccine? Until we have a steadfast way to stop this spread other than staying at home? It's gone. The sooner people realize that, the better. I know "hope springs eternal" but, seriously, we're living in a different world than the one we rang in just four months ago.
