In the age of Covid-19, what is the new nor­mal? How many of us have been expe­ri­enc­ing the heady cock­tail of con­fu­sion, anx­i­ety, and even some sur­pris­ing moments of respite from our recent-past busy rise-and-grind, hus­tle cul­ture routines?

Our social media feeds are filled with urgent and often con­flict­ing imper­a­tives to change our rou­tines and to direct increased vigilance:

  • don’t touch your face, wash our hands-don’t be obses­sive though;
  • cov­er our coughs with your elbow-not a tissue;
  • social dis­tance-with no inter­ac­tion, or maybe with some inter­ac­tion, just watch for your local busi­ness­es as you’re shel­ter­ing-in; and
  • no mat­ter what, don’t panic—you should be scared, but please, stay calm.
