List Rules Vote up the everyday occurrences you didn't think twice about before self-quarantine but that are now scary as heck in the age of the pandemic.

Nothing upends social normalcy like a highly contagious virus with a devastating mortality rate gallivanting around the globe. Suddenly, polite customs everyone used to hold dear are risky at best and exceedingly dangerous at worst. As COVID-19 spreads like viral fire, niceties like shaking hands and involuntary actions like scratching your chin become wanton acts of irresponsibility that could result in serious sickness for any number of people.

In this new age of civilians acting as amateur epidemiologists, much of what used to be ordinary is now horrifying. So let out that anxiety by voting up the formerly forgettable activities and moments that now fill you with dread in what so often feels like a dangerous, contagious world.
