What does before times mean?

Life before COVID-19

Life before the COVID-19 pandemic is sometimes referred to as the "before times." The term paints a picture of an idyllic life before the dystopian reality of covid.

Many aspects of life were forever altered with the onset of the pandemic at the end of 2019 and beginning of 2020. As the virus spread and people adapted, social distancing, WFH (or WFX), doom-scrolling, hygiene theater, and corona bumps all became commonplace.

Hand sanni, TP, and PPE were hard to find and animosity amongst anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers skyrocketed as governments mandated lockdowns, quars, and Fauci ouchies. Some hope that life can eventually go back to the way it was before coronavirus (BCV), but most understand that life after the coronavirus (ACV) will forever bear the marks of the panny d.


I wish we could go back to the before times when we didn't have to wear masks everywhere
