I'm not sure if we are in a new normal yet or not but l do know that with the difficulties regarding site visits, community consultation, face to face surveys and child care it is taking longer than normal to complete tasks and projects.
Skype, Teams, Podio and SurveyMonkey are all coming in useful and replacing face to face work but unfortunately, for the time being, the majority of my work is virtual.
Fingers crossed we get back to a new norm soon, but in the meantime, business as usual.... kind of!
