An upside of social isolation is that we’re valuing a sense of community like never before. There is nothing like a crisis to bring us all together even if we can’t be physically close to each other; we’ve seen people taking homemade soup to their elderly neighbours who they have never even spoken to before or doing the shopping for an immunocompromised acquaintance who they’ve only met twice.
