Massive changes occurred because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Most people and companies were unsure of how they would keep up. While some of them had to shut shop and work remotely, others chose to temporarily shut because their work meant socializing with people in person, and everyone was afraid that they would catch COVID.
Throughout the pandemic, with the changes taking place, people were, for the most part, not allowed to leave their houses and had to stay indoors with the virus spreading through personal interaction, and the Governments wanted to bring those down to a minimum. Whenever there was a spike in the number of people with the Coronavirus, the Government would implement another national lockdown, not allowing anyone to leave their homes unless for essential services or medical reasons.
