Carryout Margaritas—and Other Post-Pandemic Fixtures

America found creative ways to adapt to pandemic disruptions in daily life. Many “temporary” solutions that eased our stress have already become standard practice.
The following innovations, according to Politico reporters, will likely become everyday staples:

  • Food: outdoor dining, to-go alcohol, contactless restaurant service
  • Medicine: telehealth, mRNA vaccines, medical cannabis sales as an essential service
  • Education: virtual learning, noncompulsory college entrance exams, expansion of school meal programs
  • Technology: career matching with AI, QR codes for daily services, delivery robots, videoconferencing
  • Politics: voting by mail, accelerated government investment in research and small business
  • Public assistance: hotel conversion to homeless housing, cash government aid

Politico Thanks for the tip, Cecilia Meisner!
