How Covid-19 Is Killing Good Manners and What to Do About It

One casualty of the current pandemic is likely to be good manners. True, manners and civility have been dying for ages, but Covid-19 is sure to finish them off. Which is too bad.We often think of manners and civility as the same thing, but the first is only a part of the second.
