Museums can collect objects such as bottles of hand sanitizers, facemasks, shields and multimedia files documenting the new normal, like having meetings on zoom, physical distancing, concerts online, logistics companies delivering items, and photographs of people at the peak of the pandemic so that visitors can see the pictures and listen to interview excerpts on their cell phones in the museums.  People’s experiences—via TikTok and YouTube videos, Zoom screenshots and recordings, workplace emails about safety protocols, text messages about keeping busy during lockdown, and pictures of drug-store shelves stripped bare of disinfecting products. People can even submit their own pandemic stories to museums.
