I wonder if this enforced isolation will wake people up, paradoxically, to how important it is to get out of the cocoon.

It could do the opposite too. People might wonder why they ever bothered working in an office etc once they've become accustomed to doing everything from home.

Maybe. This could definitely be a tipping point for WFH. But otoh I think people don't realise how important the social side of work is. Being unemployed is shit for the lack of money of course first and foremost but it's also isolating.

Although, imagine if rather than you and your mates all going to different offices in the morning you all met up and did your separate jobs together. Would that be disastrous?

It's getting to the point where I'm starting to lose my sense of how things were before. That you could just go out whenever you felt like it, meet a bunch of people in the pub. It feels like a distant land.

You didn't go out between lockdowns did you? I went to the pub heaps then.

Nah, I just stayed as locked down as I could as I felt it was a matter of time before it kicked in again and I didn't want to get ill. I went to a mate's once, but that's about it in terms of social events. I've been for walks more or less every day.
