It’s an understatement to say the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way we live our lives.
While we sheltered inside to stop the spread of the virus, a whole new culture (let’s call it quarantine culture) started, which included cleaning groceries with sanitized wipes, excessively washing our hands and talking to our plants to pass the time.
While some things will (hopefully) go back to normal as more and more people receive the COVID-19 vaccine, there are still some new ways of life that will probably stick around post-pandemic.
So here is a list of the wild and crazy things that became a part of our quarantine culture.
1. Self-isolating when you feel sick.
This is the most obvious thing that happened in 2020. At the beginning of the pandemic, we all basically quarantined, but now, even when you have just a runny nose or a slight cough, quarantining yourself so you don’t get others sick seems to be the new normal.
2. Knowing what the word “pandemic” even means.
