Stochastic resetting models diverse phenomena across numerous scientific disciplines. Current understanding stems from the renewal framework, which relates systems subject to global resetting to their nonresetting counterparts. Yet, in interacting many-body systems, even the simplest scenarios involving resetting give rise to the notion of local resetting, whose analysis falls outside the scope of the renewal approach. A prime example is that of diffusing particles with excluded volume interactions that independently attempt to reset their position to the origin of a one-dimensional lattice. With renewal rendered ineffective, we instead employ a mean-field approach whose validity is corroborated via extensive numerical simulations. The emerging picture sheds first light on the nontrivial interplay between interactions and resetting in many-body systems.
