My little dog has been doing PSAs for awhile now:  hopefully people will have learned.  I expect that children will adapt to this but adults, not so much!

We will all in very short order go back to business as usual.  Probably within 3 days of release.  Companies are not going pay for the increased sanitation and extra Chinese Flu measures once they no longer have to.

Not really, but hopefully we will have learned a few things.  

I just witnessed a person wearing gloves while standing in line at an atm.  she was talking on her cell phone and running her hands thru her hair not realizing that is she had been in contact with some bad guys, she just infected herself despite wearing gloves.

I think the repercussions of this pandemic are going to be far bigger than we can anticipate right now. Among other things, I think people are going to keep a little larger backup supply of toilet paper. I'm afraid that people are going to be a little afraid of being in public, socializing, being in crowds. The fear of "others" will naturally increase which sometimes has led to bigotry.  And I think germophobia will be a hurdle for many people.

For over 20 years I have been aware of hand-washing, coughing on sleeve or into a hankie and acted accordingly. However, others need to come on board and that is where we are now. It is proper to now correct people about this

I can only speak for myself Joseph Doohan when I say I couldn't improve as cleanliness has always been a high priority for me. Beyond that I have to say I've never been in the habit of sniffing other people.

Yes, of course and I think that is one good thing coming out of this.  I also think that more people will be more flexible w/ their workers working at home, at least part tie.

Here's hoping.  As real estate agents we touch a lot of frequently touched surfaces and I stepped up my hand washing the first year in real estate that I got a nasty virus.

Not likely. Good hygiene is taught at a young age and meant to last a lifetime. Some obviously missed that lesson!
