With shocking swiftness, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives and the way we live them. It has also spread a pandemic of anxiety. It’s a legitimate worry for people about whether or not the disease will affect them or their loved ones, and about their businesses, their jobs, their ability to purchase the essentials of life.

It has limited our interactions with others outside of those in our own homes to the computer, cell phone or a hurried “hi” to those we meet at the grocery store. It has even popularized such novel phrases as “safe social distancing,” “shelter in place,” and “essential, life-sustaining” businesses.
