2020 will long be remembered thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. The continual outbreaks have already imposed a massive shift in our societal interactions and operations: families unable to visit their loved ones in nursing homes or hospital; school’s transitioning from classroom-based to virtual learning; and holiday shopping basically moving entirely online.
