While most of us can’t wait to see this dumpster fire of a year end and for life to eventually get back to “normal,” it seems there are some things about 2020 people aren’t so eager to give up. 

A new Fast Company survey finds 30% of people say they would prefer to shake hands less often than they did before the pandemic.

54% of people agree with the statement “I would be happy to never shake someone’s hand again. Another 54% would only do it if it were required in something like a formal or professional setting. 20% of people would be happy to attend more virtual get-togethers even after the pandemic is over.
