Effect of COVD-19 on San Diego
The San Diego regional economy saw a downturn due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in an official U.S. recession. Six months into the pandemic and subsequent economic disruption, many in the San Diego region have experienced some sort of hardship; however, as SANDAG has noted in recent publications, some groups have been disproportionately affected, including females, minorities, lower income earners, and younger employees. With an estimated 176,000 workers still unemployed due to COVID-19 in the San Diego region, lower-income workers are more likely to be out of work as this pandemic continues, compared to middle- and high-income workers.
In addition, three sectors were disproportionately represented among employment sectors hardest hit: Tourism, Retail, and Education. Across these sectors, an estimated 141,000 employees (80% of those unemployed in the region) lost an estimated $3 billion in wages (representing 63% of all lost wages in the region). Additional disparities include females being more likely to experience a job loss in the Education sector, and younger workers and those who identified as Hispanic being more likely to lose jobs in the Tourism sector.

Christmas in the United States
The original meaning of Christmas is a special church service, or mass, to celebrate the birth of Christ. The story of the Nativity, or the events surrounding the birth of Jesus, are particularly important in religious celebrations of Christmas. However, many traditions that are around today have their roots in pre-Christian winter festivals. These include the importance of candles and decorations made from evergreen bushes and tree, symbolizing everlasting light and life. This is a relaxing time with a lot of parties and merry making. It is also common to give other people small gifts, such as dolls for children and candles for adults. In this time people burn logs and hold parties. These customs have influenced how Christmas Day is celebrated today in the United States.
