"Sometimes I sit back and think about what my work life will be like when things eventually finally get back to normal Claire. We worked together pretty closely every day. And I don't know if that will ever be the same really yeah. It's hard to imagine what that'll be like. I mean you can't really practice physical distancing an office and all the public health experts that we see online or that we talked to for. This show seem to think that it'll be a very gradual return. And that will only do it when we can be sure that we can work in an office with minimal contact and I just don't know how that actually works like I can't picture it especially when you have an open concept like we do with our studios right and it's not just the office spaces it's sidewalks as I mean I don't know about you but every time I go outside now. The sidewalk seems so tiny. What I'm trying to walk past someone while maintaining that six feet I find. I have to walk on the road most of the time. Yeah and the road is empty now. Most of the time because there's no traffic in some cities have begun designating parts of roads for pedestrians because there's more of them and fewer car so clearly some of the changes. We've made have been hard but there are positives in there. I mean you know. We've done episode on the environmental benefits. Were seeing without so much commuting before this ever started we've done episodes on cyclist and pedestrian deaths in big cities and glare. It won't shock you to realize that those have fallen off a cliff and so it's clear that we can take some lessons from this whenever things get to be normal again. That's the one thing I'm trying to stay positive about throughout all of this. I think that when this is all over I think we're GONNA make some good changes I mean. I hoped we're going to make some good changes. Will all we can do right. Now is try things that help us in the short term and see what sticks and so today we're GonNa look at the profound short term impact that Kovin nineteen is having on citizen homes offices and we'll also have some questions about which of those changes could become permanent and what it would take to make them stick around. Because you're right it would be nice after all this if there were some long term benefits but I mean I just don't know so I thought we would ask somebody who might and we will do that. Claire Right after you catch us up on Monday. Where are we with? Covert nineteen in Canada. I'm actually going to start with some non Cova nineteen related news. Because that's what the country's been talking about for weeks now but today there is another story unfortunately a tragic one at least thirteen people in Nova Scotia have been killed by a gunman who went on a rampage Saturday night. One of the victims has been identified as an RCMP officer. This is still a developing story with a lot of questions so just want our listeners to know that we are following the story. And we'll have more on it in the days to come. Some countries including Australia have said that they're calling for an investigation into China's handling of the corona virus. Here at home though Justin Trudeau says Canada is not currently doing that. He did say however that we are following the lead of other countries in closely watching foreign takeover bids of Canadian firms at this vulnerable time to protect Canada's economy and national security in British Columbia. Some tougher regulations are being put in place. Anyone found responsible for price gouging or anyone reselling medical equipment now faces a fine of two thousand dollars. This comes after over eight hundred complaints of price gouging. The province also says that same two thousand dollar fine applies to people who fail to self quarantine. When they returned from travel. A curfew has been put in place in. Luscious sketchy one. After the province's first case of Cova nineteen in a long term care home was discovered inland. Lush. This is a small community in the province. Northwest the curfew. Means people are required to be in their homes between the hours of ten PM and seven. Am and anyone who is not faces a fine between one hundred and one hundred and fifty dollars. And lastly starting today anyone taking an airplane in Canada Hasta wear a non medical mascot during the trip to prove you have a mask when you board. And if you don't have a mask you could be turned away. There are exceptions for children under two and people with disabilities as of Sunday evening over thirty five thousand cases of cove in nineteen in Canada. With one thousand six hundred and forty seven deaths. Jim Jordan Heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Tone Driessen is the president of architects. Dca formerly the President of.

"So I've been really trying to take pleasure in little things That's eating a favorite snack or Rom coms from the nineties and early two thousands. I don't know they seem to be a good escape. What I need it. Endorphins are pretty much the only thing keeping me sane right. Now I've been working out with online videos and also just speaking with friends. I haven't talked to in Munson. I have taken up cross stitching right now. I'm working on a flower wreath and I made biscuits and scones and in the next couple of days. I'm going to try and make a loaf wish me luck. What you just heard was our attempt all of us who work on this podcast to look on the bright side. That's not always easy especially right now as well as the anxiety that comes with worrying about your own health and the health of your loved ones bears the depression that comes from the news. There's the lack of activity that comes from being cooped up indoors and just generally. There's a feeling of loss of a lot of the things that we might do. When we feel down going to a movie or a game going shopping getting a massage eating out all of that but more important than any of those things is the absence of close human contact at the root of it. At what so many of us are grieving right now so once we get clair's news out of the way I know it's depressing but it's also crucial right now that you stay informed today we'll try to help you understand how we're wired which of those wires can disconnect in times of crisis like this and how we can try through small efforts to plug them back in. Okay hit it Claire. Yes sorry I'd rather not be the most depressing part of this episode but here we are well. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced that federal wage subsidy to cover three quarters of salaries will go to any company large medium or small if it can show that it has seen revenues dropped sharply due to Kovic nineteen. There'll be an eight hundred and forty seven dollar cap per week and this will be backdated to March fifteenth in the coming days. Were expecting more Canadians to be coming home from abroad. Arrangements are being made for those in places that include Haiti Honduras and El Salvador Quebec has now surpassed three thousand cases. That's the most in Canada. The premier logos is the number of cases. Seems be stabilizing the government. There has announced one hundred and thirty three million dollars in emergency funds for seniors in the US. More than one hundred and forty thousand people are now infected with covert nineteen. That's the most recorded cases of any country in the world and it's followed by Italy and Spain hospitals in New York are so overrun with patients. Now that a hospital is being built in central park under white tents. Canada has now reported more than seventy four hundred cases of Cova nineteen with eighty six deaths. Jim Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Dr Elizabeth done is a professor in the Department of Psychology. At the University of British Columbia she conducts experimental research determining. How time and money and technology and other things can shape human happens. Hello Dr Dunn. Hi thanks for having me no problem. I'm going to start by just asking you how happy you are right now. Do a scale of one to ten Well you know it's interesting because I I guess I would say I might be around in eight because a part of that is just that. I know that I'm a lot better often. So many other people right now. Of course I compare it to pre cove life you know. I guess my response might be a little bit different will. That's one reason I wanted to talk to. You is just how happy were we. I guess before this disease struck because I've been having the feeling that I should have been happier when I had the chance if that makes sense right so happiness is partly dependent on our expectations and I think you know. Most of US had become accustomed to fairly comfortable way of life and I think Cova may be re setting our expectations about what life can entail and so you know what I think is interesting. Is that although I certainly anticipate that happiness levels are gonNA take a bit of a nosedive during this period. I'm curious whether they might actually rebound to levels that are higher than what we've observed in previous years because now going back to like being able to go outside and have dinner with your friends and stuff. It's going seem pretty awesome and I think it may actually increase the enjoyment that people get from what were previously activities. We took for granted so what goes into the things that in a crisis like this can make us happy. What should we be focusing on? I guess if we're missing everything that we've lost. Well I think the number one thing is finding opportunities for safe social connection so psychologist like me View social connection as being a really fundamental human. Need you know not so different things. Like food and water and sleep. Human beings have a fundamental need to connect with others. And you know it's really apparent what you need When you no longer have access to it right so deprivation really highlights what you've needed all along and so I would say you know whether it's skyping with people or you know sitting out on your balcony and chatting or do making some music with some neighbors. Whatever opportunities you can find it's really important to carve out time in your day to to connect with others. How weird is it that I feel like I've actually talked to A lot of people that I know that I haven't talked to in a while. I'm usually one of those people who's really bad about reaching out and though I obviously haven't actually seen any of them I've sent messages and and you know we've replied back and forth and it feels like I'm making more of an effort which is something I don't usually do. Yeah I've been hearing this from a lot of people I've experienced this myself. So you know hardly ever call my dad but I like called my dad the other dating so happy to hear from me and it's just a good reminder that like you know we have all these opportunities for connection in daily life that we may not take advantage of because we're sort of meeting the needs so easily so you know it's kind of like if suddenly you were deprived of food you might find you know new creative sources of nutrition that you noticed. Were there all along? Sort of like you know you might be get good foraging for Berries. I would say it's kind of like we've gotten good at foraging for social berries. Finding those may be a doormat connections or just you know. I actually talked to the neighbors in the building next to mine for the first time ever last night because we were both out on Porches cheering for healthcare workers at the seven. Pm Shift Change You know I think this crisis is actually creating opportunities to both renew old connections and even spark nuance when somebody's feeling really down over this. Which is totally understandable And you kind of see social media posts telling them to be grateful for what they have or to you know find the silver lining or just appreciate the simple things. That kind of stuff can feel impossible right now. Is there a way to try to find that appreciation? Well I south. You know. It's easier to engage in those kinds of positive behaviors. When you're not feeling terrible right so if you're just having one of those moments I think all of us have had them at some point in the past weeks of just feeling like this sense of devastation. You know telling somebody when they're feeling like that. Too like savor the taste of chocolate or whatever is probably not that helpful but you know. I think a lot of us have had moments where we're like. Oh like feeling a little bit. Okay right You know again for example last night when we were all out cheering for the healthcare workers at seven I felt like this real sense of connection in warmth and and I really just try to hold onto that so when I got a little bit of it. I made the most of it so I like shared on facebook and looked at other people's facebook posts from elsewhere in the city of people posting the same cheering. So I kind of took that. Like little kernel of positivity and really tried to make the most of it but it wasn't just trying to pull it out of nowhere from the depths of devastation and and that's kind of the strategy that I would I would recommend for people. Would.
