New normal: What reopening looks like around the world

Stacker Logo By Lauren Liebhaber of Stacker | Slide 1 of 51: COVID-19 lockdowns are lifting, and the world we are emerging into looks different. Normal life as we knew it before the pandemic must adjust to mitigate the risk of future outbreaks. That means a world that looks and feels maybe a little less human.  The way we dine out, shop, learn, and worship are all being adapted to a new normal, a new way of existing in a socially distant world—if only temporarily.  For now, clouds of disinfectant, hazmat suits over professional suits, and temperature scans are among the new everyday protocols in place to help us along the way in redefining normal life.  Click through to see images from around the world curated by Stacker, depicting how life is changing in the wake of COVID-19.  You may also like: Quaranchella: How music is lifting spirits during the pandemic
