AUGUST SLOWDOWN OR COVID SLOWDOWN? OR BOTH?

I started my (broker, rather than proprietary) search in earnest in May and have noticed a significant slowdown in new deals coming to market in the past 4-6 weeks.

Is it just the brokers with whom I'm speaking not getting new deals? Is the slowdown typical for August w/ brokers and sellers going on holiday? Or is it COVID related, given the tons of uncertainty in the past 5 months and in the next 12 months? Or perhaps some confluence of factors.

I'm looking to the more experienced searchers / bankers / investors for their experience of years past.
