Tell us how Bay Area’s new normal should look
The end is near. At least it feels that way. After more than a year of chaos, and the deaths of nearly 600,000 Americans, the country’s widespread COVID vaccination regimen is giving us a glimpse of a light at the end of the tunnel. Of course, that could change in an instant. COVID rates have never been higher in the rest of the world, and amid that proliferation, a vaccineresistant variant could emerge that sends us back to square one.
So where do we go from here? Do we play it safe, knowing that COVID — or a new plague — could resurface at any time in our interconnected world? Do we mask up in public in perpetuity? Should crowded offices become a thing of the past? Or do we throw caution to the wind, get back to the grind, and return to our old lives as soon as possible?
What should the Bay Area’s new normal look like after COVID?
