The New Normal
When the COVID-19 pandemic is in our rearview mirror, what will the new normal look like? This a question many of us are asking ourselves. In Apollo’s Arrow: The Profound and Enduring Impact of Coronavirus on the Way We Live, Nicholas Christakis addresses this important question. In his book, he discusses how the recovery from the coronavirus pandemic will unfold in the coming years and predicts that at the end of 2023 and the beginning of 2024 we will enter the “post-pandemic period” where something similar to the roaring ‘20s will likely occur. If he is correct and the post-pandemic period will usher in a new era of revitalization and change, the time to begin discussing what the “new normal” should look like is now.
