Another question came in about when we will look to make decisions about flag in the fall. Not ready to put an exact date on that just yet, but we know the sooner the better for many of you. We are already having conversations with specific leaders about their thoughts on how that could look. We will try to make decisions in a timely manner, but feel free to reach out to anybody on the exec team if you need an update at any time.
