Pandemic fatigue has fully set in. States are in various stages of reopening, and summer weather is tempting us out of our homes. Yet we are still seeing COVID-19 spread: The World Health Organization recently reported the largest single-day increase in virus cases worldwide since the crisis began. Though we may be finished with the coronavirus, it’s clear the virus isn’t finished with us.

At the start of the pandemic, we collectively knew what to do: Stay home. But now, with no standardized guidelines on how we’re supposed to behave, everyone seems to be living by their own rules. Many are trying to determine what’s actually safe, while others have given up entirely. It’s leading to a lot of confusion ― and a threat to public health.

What questions do you have as we enter this phase of the pandemic? For example, are you curious if it’s safe to fly or stay at a hotel? Can you safely get a haircut or go to the dentist? How can you socialize with family and friends? How do you measure your own risk of getting COVID-19? How do you deal with the anxiety of a potential second wave and an uncertain future?

Leave your questions in the comments here, and HuffPost medical contributor Dr. Kavita Patel and senior wellness editor Lindsay Holmes will respond to them. Check back on July 7 at 1:30 p.m.-2:30 p.m. ET, when they will be answering live.
