Connecticut residents have lived through a strange couple of months. Unfortunately, we expect the current situation to continue for an undetermined amount of time.
While the pandemic disrupted all our lives, it won’t continue forever. There will be life after COVID-19.
Of course, exactly what that life will look like is somewhat unknown. So, the Keating Agency decided to see what prognosticators have to say.
Life certainly will be different, but that doesn’t have to be bad.
Live After COVID-19 Won’t Be the Same
While life after COVID-19 may be delayed for a while, our partners at Hagerty Classic Insurance wants us to know they will be there for the road ahead. Hagerty put out this reassuring video.
After a beautiful Sunday this week, the idea of hitting the open road is enticing. Maybe you took a walk to look at spring flowers. Perhaps you planted flowers.
But here we are near the end of another work week. Many of us are working from home. Students are distance learning.
Will we ever go back to those buildings again?
The news website Politico reached out to various experts to predict how life after COVID-19 might be. Here are some of the highlights.
A professor of political science predicts a new kind of patriotism. We now honor the sacrifices of our armed servicemen and servicewomen. And we praise the work and sacrifice of medical professionals.
However, other groups of workers deserves our praise and appreciation. These individuals work in:
- Nursing homes
- Retail establishments
- Janitorial serves
Also, an important fact is that many of these workers serve in low wage positions. Many cannot afford health insurance. Perhaps that changes.
A professor of psychology predicts less polarization. Diseases don’t discriminate. No immunity exists based on race, nationality, religious belief, or political affiliation. As a result, we truly are all in this together.
A professor at the U.S. Naval War College predicts a return to faith in experts. Medical and biological science will defeat this virus.
A professor of sociology predicts a decline in individualism and an increase in community. People are checking on elderly and frail neighbors. Everyday citizens sew face masks to donate to others. Individuals are volunteering to work at food pantries and shop for those who cannot. Our community health and safety depend on everyone doing their part.
Whatever happens in the weeks and months ahead, we at the Keating Agency believe better things are on the horizon. We are here now and will be in the future to help you protect everything important to you.
There will be life after COVID-19. And we at the Keating Agency plan to do our part to make the world a better place.
Take care. Stay safe. Stay well. And know that we are just a phone call away.
