I believe the country will change profoundly, the way the country changed after the "great Depression", people will learn how to save, and get priorities

anyone care to add to the list

1) people will move out of the big cities
2)people will learn how to save

For white collar and office workers, working from home will become the rule rather than the exception.

Handshaking will become less common.

Hand sanitizer will be absolutely everywhere. Maybe a good time to buy their stocks?

We’ll be much better prepared for another outbreak in the same way 9/11 catalyzed improvements in homeland security.

Less international travel, domestic vacations, given an option choose to drive versus fly, no cruise ship vacations. Empty seats at large gatherings such as sporting events and concerts.

I see in the 6 months after the pandemic is over, younger people (the “me first” generation) will become more complacent and start letting their guard down; millennials and older generations will let this change their lives and habits.

We will no longer shake hands
We have learned we don’t need most people so distancing will be common
Work and school will be from home

1. For those that travel, there will be health checks at airports and before boarding cruise ships.
2. The hand shake/physical contact will be replaced by some other form of greeting.
3. There will be more limits/checks placed on those over 60.
4. Easy access to hospitals, nursing homes and doctor offices will change.

Other than a few minor things like shaking hands and hugging at group gatherings, I sincerely doubt anything will change permanently. At first people will be cautious but complacency will eventually dull their concerns. After six months to a year, the Corona Virus will be history. And if they test and approve a vaccine before then, the whole time frame will shorten dramatically. I just checked the US death toll today and it shows a total of 9171 fatalities. The US death toll of the H1N1 pandemic in 2009 was over 12,000 in an equally short time. Do you see any huge changes in the US after the H1N1?

If you are young enough and you ever wanted to start a business, now is the time. I think that many small businesses that are closed, will never reopen.

Within one year it will be business as usual, and in two years, "What Virus?"

I agree with this. However H1N1 didn’t have the same huge reaction from federal and state governments. For the record I’m not saying I agree or disagree with this government intervention just stating a fact.

If we look at the changes that were made after 9/11 and then look at this virus event which is of greater magnitude, changes are a coming like it or not.

My point precisely but I did my best to keep my original post non-political. H1N1 was horrible as well, perhaps even worse.

"Additionally, CDC estimated that 151,700-575,400 people worldwide died from (H1N1)pdm09 virus infection during the first year the virus circulated.** Globally, 80 percent of (H1N1)pdm09 virus-related deaths were estimated to have occurred in people younger than 65 years of age. This differs greatly from typical seasonal influenza epidemics, during which about 70 percent to 90 percent of deaths are estimated to occur in people 65 years and older."

Never again should China and the WHO be trusted on anything.

In March, the FBI conducted a record number of background checks on gun buyers. Even the dimmest citizen now knows that governments cannot protect you from harm. You must protect yourself, and that includes financially. Stop spending money you don’t have.

Finally, government-run health care is a virus victim. Many countries in Europe that have socialized medicine are running death rates ten times higher than the USA.

Again, you need to protect yourself. You have to develop a skill the marketplace needs. Companies and unions will not provide you with economic security. Profit will continue to rule in post-pandemic America.
