“Expect that there’s going to be an adjustment period,” advised Ring. “And don’t have expectations that are excessive. That you’re going to go through this adjustment just because life is returning back to normal.” Ring says for some individuals the situation is like a long-lasting traumatic natural disaster and perhaps others have found solace in the opportunity for isolation, so everyone will have to pave their own path out of this pandemic. If you are experiencing any mental health issues, it’s important to reach out to a professional.
Whether it’s a game in Baseballtown, a day at the beach or a live concert, people who have reservations about returning to large crowds can try to select just one to help them transition and adjust to the change. “People are used to experiencing COVID anxiety associated with crowds and there may be some residual effect of that,” said Ring. “That’s going to be a holdover for some people.”
“What kind of crowd do I pick to adjust myself into as we move forward out of this epidemic?” said Ring. “At first glance, we might actually take that for granted; it’s not something to take for granted.” Following over a year of constant notices and guidelines advising to social distance and avoid gatherings of people, it’s time to get back in the “being around lots of people” pool, but for some, it’s not a simple societal switch.
