As the country begins to reopen amid the coronavirus, we find ourselves in a unique spot. The old way of life is behind us, and soon we will live in a post-coronavirus world.
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation research shows that the peak in deaths in the United States from the virus occurred on April 15, 2020.
People’s normal routine turning into their new-normal routine
People are slowly leaving their homes and trying to get back to their somewhat normal routine. Their old routine may have included: traveling on packed airplanes, attending sporting events, the feeling of job security.
Their old routine is now replaced with a new regular routine. People will continue to practice what has become known as social distancing. They will be even more focused on washing their hands and continually disinfecting their personal spaces.
While before the coronavirus hit, people routinely traveled the globe, which might hamper down for a bit. Virtual meetings could potentially replace business travel through services like Zoom and Skype. It’s cheaper, quicker, and more comfortable than getting on a plane to get somewhere.
Life, in general, will definitely be changed. More and more people will continue to turn to God, as has been happening during the pandemic. Things like this cause people to search for answers to big questions, and God is the answer to most of those.
Cruise ship speakers future still strong
One of the first groups to be affected by the coronavirus were speakers on international cruises. Most importantly, those that lectured on back to back trips.
With cruise lines temporarily halted, speakers have been spending time creating new material. They also spent their time learning new skills and how to become a better speaker.
While these speakers are used to addressing large gatherings on ships, they will likely be talking to a much smaller crowd.
With cruise ships carrying large amounts of people out in the open sea, companies are more likely to continue practicing social distancing. They will very likely, reduce the number of people in each event. This can lead to speakers giving the same talk during the cruise to different groups.
