    Don’t we all feel a little awkward, venturing out after lockdown – amidst the COVID-19 pandemic? Deciding how close to get to someone. Holding back a handshake or a hug.

    The fears are real. And they’re communicated subconsciously through body language.

    Considering how highly social humans are: how’s all this affecting us? And is this awkward pandemic body language here to stay?
