Will This Social Distancing Become A "New Norm"?

Hopefully it works to slow or stop the spread.

I was thinking, so what next?

In the past 20 years we had two other major outbreaks SARS and MERS, neither which affected the US in a major way.

So I was wondering the next time this happen. What will the reaction be? I guess it depends on the success of this time.

But will we lockdown much, much sooner? If so what if it's like SARS or MERS, something that didn't affect the US much?

Will the economy have to adjust the way it works if this is the new norm?

(this may not be the right forum, so mods please move if necessary)
