The big question is, when and how will they decide to do it?
"The timing is going to be crucial" said Republican strategist Vlad Davidiuk, "It would not surprise me if probably Labor Day, right as the campaigns are getting started, they start lifting pandemic restrictions, and lifting mask requirements. They're going to try and take a victory lap on this."

"It can always come back" Buckley told KTRH, "Obviously at some point in the future, something similar will occur. I'm sure there are lots of people who would like to keep this permanent."
They both noted how Covid has already been cancelled in the UK. We'll see what happens next, here in the U.S.
