More telecommuting, less in person group meetings - zoom or whichever platform their company prefers. I foresee tele-medicine sticking, my primary, surgeon and I love it for the discussion of testing type appointments, and in a pinch we could all have a group zoom meeting with oncology and radiation oncology without having to converge on one office.
Vacationing will have to make a shift - Cruises/all inclusive resorts/spiffy location group tours are going to be an issue with the need for social distancing and constant sanitation requirements, All it will take is a few covidiots [love love love that term] to cough their way through the Pacific Princess [does she still exist? I know the one from TV hit the breakers about 15 years ago. We could have bought her for $350K and had a floating Dopefest permanently] and making it a plague ship.
Medical will have to make a shift - the isolation is stressful for family of the ill. When one is stuck in bed, the visits from family and friends give you something to think about other than your treatment/rehab. If you are critical or even terminal, that last visit to say good bye, or potential last visit is very important emotionally. I look on mrAru for a lot of aid, both physically and emotionally - he went to almost all of my infusion and radiation appointments, he went to my regular appointments so in my chemo fogged brain I didn’t forget details. Some of the days he was my wheelchair jockey [hell, most of my days] I absolutely hate his not being with me at my appointments.
And we really do need to enforce masking and sanitation - I am immunocompromised, and since it is back I am going to start the whole chemo thing again, so it is going to be another 18 months of trying to stay well [ish, when the drugs have you horking up everything you have eaten for the last month while simultaneously shoving it out your nethers, well is a relative term.] I don’t want to have to quarantine myself permanently other than medical appointments,
