How do we balance pandemic burnout with public health?
The urge to declare everything as “back to normal” from the COVID-19 pandemic seems to be at an all time high, but there’s just as much mass death as there was a year ago, both nationally and in Illinois. Some feel that they did their parts: social distancing, masking, and getting vaccinated, and they're ready to move on from restrictions and the pandemic. Many trying to reconcile their own feelings of frustration at pandemic restrictions with the desire to protect those who are still vulnerable to the virus.
To discuss it all, The 21st was joined by a professor of medical history and bioethics who penned an opinion piece on the subject.
