When did the impact of COVID-19 first occur to you? How did your reaction to COVID-19 change between then and the first case in your town?

The day I went to Walmart and everybody was sweeping the stuff off shelves and dropping them in their shopping carts. I don’t think they even noticed what they were sweeping in their shopping carts

How is your life different now than it was before the pandemic?

It’s like Gestapo. Your controlled exactly how to walk into Walmart, there are loudspeakers telling you to mask up. There are lines going out the door with only 2 people inside. My friends at work had their hours cut or threatened w eviction because they can’t make rent.

How are you feeling? What are you doing to relieve stress?

I’m really pissed off. The liberal media has made us all fools.

What have you noticed has changed in your community since the outbreak? What has surprised you?

Everyone is overreacting to another flu. We didn’t shut down the economy in years past because of the flu.

Are you a business owner who has had to close? If you are still open, how have you had to adjust how your business operates?

No, but I’ve have friends who had to close.

Are you an essential employee? What do you do? What precautions are being taken at your workplace? What precautions are implementing at home?

Security at a community college, the entire school has been shut down, it’s like a ghost town.

Did you or someone you know contract COVID-19? What was it like?

People from other departments have caught it. Two weeks later, they’re back. They’re young so that was expected. It’s only the very old and those with previous conditions that are effected but that’s same w influenza

What would you want future generations to know about the 2020 pandemic? How would you recommend they prepare for it?

It’s not as bad as the liberal media made it out to be. Take care of yourself, eat good, sleep good, wash your hands, you’ll be alright. This whole ploy was hyped up to take down Trump.
