While airline travel continues to sink because of the coronavirus, Americans seem to still be going on vacation this summer.

A study by the American Hotel & Lodging Association shows 44{143106009d8b87d45252e1fd973f0c0835ad3aabba3679e828c3cd83539ae06c} of people will take some type of vacation or family trip this year. Because New Yorkers must quarantine for 14 days after visiting certain states, many opt for drivable getaways like nearby campgrounds or beaches.

“It’s OK to have fun, (but) do it safely,” Saad Omer, the director of Yale Institute for Global Health, told the TODAY show last month.
