COVID and Recovery

by Tim Dyer

Recovery is not arriving back at the same state we enjoyed before COVID19 rudely interrupted our lives. We cannot, and given what we have all experienced of the impacts of COVID19, should not, try to wind back the clock as if this was simply an anomaly and normal life can soon recommence.

The experience of a pandemic event like COVID19 significantly changes individuals, groups, organisations, societies and cultures. While I don’t find the phrase, finding the new normal particularly helpful, it is commonly used to describe the process of working out how to live on the other side of a crisis.
