This is an historical period that is completely out of the ordinary.
Exceptions are made, circumstances are raised, needs are shaped. Yet, we should be careful using all of this as an excuse to deviate from our path.
In most cases, we can still continue pursuing what we were pursuing before. The values, beliefs, rules we have set at the indivual level do not necessarily have to be questioned.
Unless of course those were just a convenient facade.
A good way to understand this is by counting how many times we say “considering the current circumstances” to excuse ourselves for what we are about to say and do. It could be telling.
