Society’s New Rules in a Post-COVID World

COVID-19 has changed our world. How we live, work, socialize, and express ourselves is being redefined and shaped for a new tomorrow. Is this a post-apocalyptic story? Not at all, but it will call on us to rethink how we view the world.

Let’s talk about the different ways that our society will be different in the post-COVID-19 era.

We Need to Change How We Support Others

Charity is one of the noblest traits of the human spirit, and even in the bleakest of times, we do what we can to support the survival and dignity of our neighbours.

But how can we exercise this virtue in a world where proximity can be a danger to our overall health? Whether it’s nation-states helping smaller societies build the infrastructure for vaccines, or local shelters creating socially-distanced spaces for the homeless, our strongest connections are going to change and be tested in these trying times.

One thing that won’t change, however, is the power of money. Donations are always appreciated by organizations that are working to help our most vulnerable or are working to create medical products for our communal safety.

Communal Workspaces May Be on the Way Out

Finding yourself working from home and communicating with coworkers over Zoom? You are not the only one. From small operations to international conglomerates, companies are being forced to separate their workers to stem the spread of COVID.

And yet, many people are enjoying this stay-at-home lifestyle, with many businesses now questioning the need for their physical overhead costs. Soon, the idea of large commercial offices may be a thing of the past and businesses may live and perish in the digital realm.

Desires for Socialization Will be Greater Than Ever Before

If there’s one thing we’re all missing during these long months of carefully operating around others, it’s the casual socialization and friendliness we all experienced before.

Bars, restaurants, athletic centers, and shopping malls have all seen their doors closed and their capacities diminished. Communal cabin fever has gripped our society, and whether it’s through digital platforms or new socially-distanced options, people will be clambering for whatever chances they can get to see and greet their fellow humans.

Many times in history, society has undergone drastic changes, and every time we have come out on the other side determined to create a better tomorrow.
