We remain amid a cycle of learning with the shared dilemma caused by a public health pandemic. Each person sets their own course, based upon what they know and what they choose to do with that knowledge.
Life was much the same with what people learn and how they behave when there wasn’t such a crisis, it’s just not as obvious without all needing to learn about one consistent and obvious dilemma. With one dilemma for all, the decisions made by others are more obvious.
In the end, it comes down to the choices made by each individual as they learn or fail to learn. Some live within the virus to serve the medical needs of others. Some sacrifice their lifestyle decisions dramatically to lessen risks, yet still may be exposed. Some bare no risks at all and suffer no consequences.
It is best to continue learning and to modify your actions as you apply what you have learned.
Learning is your choice. It always has been. It always will be.
