The University of Connecticut's Dr. Kenneth Vaughan said this involves all of us taking interest in the well-being of others. Vaughan, a sociology professor, admitted to looking forward to a time when he feels comfortable returning to places, participating in events, and seeing people from his pre-pandemic life. But he cautioned us from thinking of the challenges, costs, and benefits of reopening as purely economic.

"What I'm really excited about," he said, "what I'm looking forward to is the return to voluntary associations."
