    Will you guys still use face masks, hand sanitizers and maintain social distancing when the era of covid is done and over with for good? You know, just for the sake of healthy & safety measures.

    If you do not do any of these during covid, don't bother answering. lol.

    I think the washing my hands more often than before corona will definitely stick to an extent for me. Masks are only helpful at crowded places.. so probably not

    Japanese people are known for wearing face masks in crowded public places before covid was a thing

    I can’t see it happening in the western world, maybe asia idk.

    People won’t social distance either… the one that might occur more often is hygiene.

    Maryland has lifted the mask mandate, but I still wear one (most of the time) and I see most others doing the same when I'm out at the grocery store and what not. Most stores now have a "mask optional" sign outside. I never really had a problem wearing a mask. I got used to it. I know I'll eventually give it up, but getting out of my car and going inside somewhere it just feels like second nature to grab my mask now

    Regularly? Of course not. If I’m, say, getting over a cold and riding public transit? I’m gonna try to be diligent about wearing a mask in those situations.

    Basically what BC said. Obviously I'm not gonna be wearing a mask whenever I leave my house, but if you're sick it's just considerate imo. It's been a common practice in a lot of countries since way before covid was even a thought, we just catching up.

    I think a heightened focus on sanitation processes would follow through and I'd imagine A LOT of people will continue with masks. I won't though, but that's my decision for my own health.

    Social distancing though, no chance. I can't wait for it to be "safe" to be in a hot, unventilated, crowded indie venue!

    No. Texas dropped mask mandates and I rarely wear one now. If an establishment still requires masks I don’t mind wearing one.

    Exactly. COVID really just highlighted that we should have been following the lead of collectivist countries with this stuff the whole time—it's really just the considerate thing to do and it takes minimal effort on your part. When I went to the health center in college they made you wear a mask in the waiting room but that was really the only other time I've worn one before COVID.

    It def felt awkward to put on a mask every time you went out in public at first, but I think after doing it for over a year it won't feel as awkward because everyone (well almost everyone) will know why you're wearing one.
