Both the economy and the health sector would suffer more than they can endure. It is uncertain how that would translate for other social fabric aspects such as the housing crisis, mortality rates, and educational practices. For now, it is safest to meet in small groups to resume important worldly activities that demand our attention. It is preferred that meetings take place outdoors where there is much air and ventilation.
Normalize wearing disposable shoe covers
