Victor Enriquez, Reporter

Covid-19 has been the number one headline all year, and with a potential second wave on the way, it brings the question how will life look after Covid.

According to “everyday things we miss, took for granted and can’t wait to have back after coronavirus” writer Kelly McCarthy weather it’s big events or just getting regular cups of coffee we miss our traditional lives. Prior to this what now seems so rare but leaving the house was an everyday routine. McCarthy also mentioned uncertainty is the number 1 cause of anxiety which is why people are really taking this so hard because until now we had no restrictions for public gather’s but Covid-19 turned our routine life upside down. Also according Shannon Doyen writer of “What do you miss most about life before the pandemic?” people around the world are feeling nostalgic about life before the virus. She even includes photos readers sent in speaking about their last day before quarantine. In survey of 100 students 78 of them believed life will improve after Covid.

“I think people will have a new appreciation for life without restrictions, I think people will work harder than ever and spend more because life can be flipped at any moment, we talk about the roaring 20s all the time, well life after Covid can lead to the roaring 20s of the 2000s,” said senior Lily Muratalla.

However, not all students agree with Lily.

“People will be in constant fear of another wave or a new sickness, everyone will be looking out for themselves, people still won’t want to go outside and the economy will continue to decrease,” said senior Joshua Esquivel.

So there many different opinions on how life will be after Covid.

“As long as people put money back into the economy, it will skyrocket post Covid,” said Bertha Martinez.

Most seem to believe that the economy will boost after Covid.

” I think the economy will boost because so many people will be able to go back to their jobs. Many mothers can’t work right now because they have to stay home with their kids for remote learning. We have a daycare problem in this country and too many women cannot work because of the lack of daycare. Also, service industry workers will be able to go back to work, that was the hardest hit. So yes, definitely economy will improve because more people will be able to go back to work and will be able to spend on things like travel, dinners, etc,” said social science teacher Marlo Rohde.
