READER POLL: Should we wave goodbye to the handshake?

IT'S been months since anyone greeted another person with the humble handshake.

Seen as a method to transmit the deadly coronavirus, the handshake was given the flick, along with hugging and personal contact when the first cases arrived in Australia.

But for decades, a handshake was the binding agreement to many deals made across the country.

As restrictions begin to ease, its uncertain what old traditions will return, and which will become a piece of history.

Do you think the handshake should return once coronavirus is under control?
