MIT Technology Review - A guide to negotiating a covid bubble

The MIT Technology Review has 9 quick tips of how to negotiating a social pod during this pandemic. Here they are:

  • Agree to have no hard feelings
  • Think about the risk
  • Talk about why you want to bubble up
  • Agree to all follow the same rules, whatever they are
  • Talk through your daily routines
  • Accept that none of you is being rational
  • Agree on what you’ll communicate about, and then over-communicate
  • Maybe don’t post about it on social media
  • Give yourselves a trial period

We here at Social Contract think these are great tips to navigate this new reality of social bubbles, so that you can pick back up with safe and healthy interactions with your friends and family.

Social Contract doesn’t replace your conversations with those that you are social isolating with, but rather helps facilitate that ongoing communication. We gently remind people to stay safe, and provide the group with insight into how well everyone is staying safe.
