Pandemic Preparedness #4: How Do We Make The “New Normal” Stick?

Ever since the first MCO in March last year, we’ve learned to adapt to the “new normal”, thinking that it would be temporary. But almost eleven months later, many of us find ourselves under MCO 2.0 as it’s colloquially called. Is it normal that some of us are starting to feel fatigued and find ourselves lax in following the SOPs? Here to help us understand how human behaviour has changed during the pandemic and how to make the “new normal” stick is senior lecturer and researcher in social psychology, Elaine Fernandez.
