A new national survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) shows that many Americans are not expected to travel this holiday seasons. Results show that 72 percent of Americans are unlikely to travel for Thanksgiving and 69 percent are unlikely to travel for Christmas, compounding the challenges for the hotel industry during this public health crisis.
Business travel has been even more impacted: Only 8 percent of Americans say they have taken an overnight business trip since March, and just 19 percent of respondents who are currently employed—or 8 percent of all adults—expect to travel for business within the next six months. Sixty-two percent (62 percent) of employed Americans have no plans to stay in a hotel for business.
The survey of 2,200 adults was conducted November 2-4, 2020 by Morning Consult on behalf of AHLA. Key findings of the survey include the following:

Some military voters are concerned they have been thrust into the center of unsubstantiated fraud claims by President Donald Trump’s campaign that several thousand people may have improperly voted in Nevada.
There is no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election despite Trump’s claims. Election officials from both political parties have stated publicly that the election went well and international observers confirmed there were no serious irregularities that elected Democrat Joe Biden the next president.
Still, lawyers from Trump’s campaign sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr alleging they had uncovered what they described as “criminal voter fraud” in Nevada. They said they had identified 3,062 people who “improperly” cast mail ballots in Clark County, a Democrat-heavy area that includes Las Vegas and about 75% of the state’s population.
Those people were identified by “cross-referencing the names and addresses of voters with the National Change of Address database,”
(Bloomberg) — Bali, the hardest-hit economy among Indonesia’s provinces last quarter, is seeing a pick-up in activity as its governor continues debating when and how the island can reopen to international travelers.
The province saw its gross domestic product shrink 12.28% in the third quarter from a year ago, the worst contraction among Indonesia’s 34 provinces, even as domestic tourists were allowed to return in July. Its shores remain shut to foreign arrivals as the island scrapped an earlier plan to reopen in September due to a resurgence in coronavirus cases.

As the number of COVID-19 cases in California surpasses one million, and L.A. County officially declaring a surge in infections, Governor Gavin Newsom has issued an advisory urging against non-essential out-of-state holiday travel this season, and asking visitors and returning Californians to self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival.
“California just surpassed a sobering threshold—one million COVID cases—with no signs of the virus slowing down,” Newsom said in a statement Friday. “Increased cases are adding pressure on our hospital systems and threatening the lives of seniors, essential workers and vulnerable Californians. Travel increases the risk of spreading COVID-19, and we must all collectively increase our efforts at this time to keep the virus at bay and save lives.”
Oregon Governor Kate Brown and Washington Governor Jay Enslee have also signed on to the warning, which defines essential travel as travel for work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply
Gary Darnell Williams recently had finished serving a 10-year sentence for fraud when prosecutors say he masterminded a new scheme involving stolen mail, counterfeit checks and homeless people.
Now the 52-year-old is headed back to prison.
A federal judge sentenced Williams to more than eight years behind bars on charges of mail and bank fraud, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia announced Thursday in a news release. He pleaded guilty to the charges in August, court filings show.
Williams was arrested in 2010 for his role in a counterfeit check scam that spanned half the East Coast — from Pennsylvania to South Carolina, according to court filings. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 10 years in prison with five years of supervised release and ordered to pay nearly $100,000 in restitution.
Just after Christmas in 2018, public records show Williams was released early from the
