Purchased March 22, 2020 I bought it near beginning of COVID expecting that I would have lots of time to explore this long running, but unfulfilled passion for the violin. I've played it a grand total of maybe 10 times. However, it looks like I will have to wait longer as it's unlikely I'll be able to dedicate any significant time to this for a long time. So rather than let it sit and rot, I'm selling for a quick loss to get it in good hands.
I don't know your circumstance, so this is not an advice. But if I were you, unless I were in a real financial crunch, I'd rather keep the violin. It won't rot; it takes a lot of year for the wood to rot physically. The violin's tone may go to sleep, but it will wake up when you start learning to play again. As adults, we're all busy and distracted, especially during this pandemic time, full of anxiety and uncertainty. Some days it feels like we need 48 hours / day just to get daily mundane things done, let alone learning or playing music. And yet, when a strong urge for making music comes, it will be nice to have the instruments handy!
