Change Fatigue and COVID-19

Change fatigue and COVID-19 Why you're sick of the news. By Jacquie Liversidge You’ve stopped watching the news. But to begin with, you were really invested in the federal government updates. And then you weren’t. You’ve stopped checking the coronavirus numbers. You have no idea what you can actually do with today’s restrictions, and you might not care.
