Our Emerging Understanding of the Outbreak — Reflections on Covid

A few days ago, I was in touch with a friend who sits on the board of a European family business. His story reflects the evolution that many of us have lived in the face of Covid-19. First, the whispered rumors of a possible pandemic. Then, confusion over how to handle the emerging outbreak. And finally, a realization of the scope of the disaster we are confronting together.

I share it in the hopes that it helps readers feel less alone in this time of isolation and social distancing. As we look toward the future, our stories will continue to evolve. We don’t yet know when we will be free of the virus. We don’t yet know how much longer social distancing may last. But we do know that life for all of us will be different, wherever and whenever we emerge from the crisis.
