In the course of the recent Wray v. Moore debate, Randy emphatically stated that he believed the recovery would be an "L" (of long duration) rather than a "V."  At least some mainstream (NBER) research is in agreement.  See https://www.nber.org/papers/w27105.pdf

In the conclusion, the authors state

"While the model can generate a V-shaped recession, it does so by producing some implausible outcomes. First, 95% the initial increase in the unemployment rate is due to temporary layoffs and only 5% is due to permanent layoffs."
