How are you?
In general, this question is often more of an “icebreaker,” a polite way of starting a conversation. The type of answer depends, among other things, on the level of relationship that exists between the people. However, since last year and the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, the question of how people are has taken on a whole new dimension.
The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the global community: on people’s lives and health, on their livelihoods, on their togetherness and on the economy. So it comes as no real surprise that safety is our spotlight topic in this issue. So that we can continue to answer any potential questions about how we are doing with an honest “Fine, thanks”!
Happy reading and stay healthy!
