Post Covid19 Complacency?

Isolation, sanitiser and virtual companionship have become the ‘norm’ now. People seem to have gradually complied with all these restrictions and over time adjusted their daily lives. The subsequent ‘flattening of the curve’ and the associated anxieties about the...

“What will things look like for you?” 

“What will things look like for you?”  When preparing for our emergence from weeks of isolation this is probably a good question to ponder. I’m sure there are things we have learnt, things we are dying to resume and certain things we can do...
