The second wave in Victoria and concerns in other States remind us to stay vigilant with actions like hand washing and keeping a safe distance. COVID-19 is extremely infectious. As we have seen, a few cases can rapidly become many, and flip us back into lockdown.
Decisions are hard
Most things we do on a daily basis, we take for granted and don’t need to make decisions about. However, we generally all have a low threshold for the number of decisions we like to make. So in the current environment, where we need to make decisions about many of the most basic activities, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure about what to do.
If people are given too many options or decisions, they usually go with the easiest choice, and often that’s to go back to what they did before.
Markers on the ground in cafes, sanitiser dispensers at shop entrances and signs to remind us to physically distance help nudge us in the right direction, but we also need to take personal responsibility and encourage those around us to do the same.
