Yesterday, we asked you: What’s something that’s changed about the world during the pandemic that you hope stays afterward? Here’s what some of you said…
“Normalizing mask-wearing and staying home (from work, social gatherings, etc.) when you have any symptoms of not feeling well. It used to be normal to ‘power through’ not feeling well at work, and I hope that will not return post-COVID.” — Carolyn Tomecek
“Working from home! Pre-pandemic my employer said it was a liability for us to work from home, but they surely found a way for us to do it now. So no going back for me.” — Alexis Danielle
“Slower pace of life. Spending more time at home. Enjoying the simpler things.” — Shelly Lynn Rivera
“People standing six feet away from you in line at the checkout. The biggest pet peeve of mine before the pandemic was folks not understanding personal space in line.” — Bennie Woodell
“The curbside services at stores and restaurants. Or even the option for some places to be able to pick up an order when they didn’t have that at all before.” — Ewa Dziadkowiec
“Regular deep cleanings/sanitizations of stores, gyms, restaurants and workplaces.” — Baylee Steelman
