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

More isolated.

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

I am tired.

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

People are wearing masks, everywhere.

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.

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

No.

Are you an employee who has been laid off or furloughed? Were you able to get unemployment? Were you able to retain your health insurance?

NO.

Are you working from home? What adjustments or challenges are you experiencing?

No.

Do you have children at home? How’s it going?

I have adult children living in my home as a result of the hurricane 2 years ago.

If you’re a student, was school canceled? Were you able to complete your studies online? Do you think you’ll be back on campus in the fall?

N/A

How are you using social media, the Internet, or digital platforms during the pandemic?

As usual.

Did you have to postpone any major life events? (e.g. Graduation, wedding, major birthday) What did you do instead?

No.

Do you have animals? Did you adopt a pet? How have they impacted your day?

No pets.

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

My daughter in-law tested positive at her workplace. She lived with her employer until her quarantine was over. My son contracted the virus at work and I got it from him. We had mild cases.

If you lost someone during the pandemic, how did you celebrate their lives?

N/A

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

My belief is that it was handled badly and everything became 'Covid' -- no deaths from flu, no common colds, no deaths from old age and chronic diseases.

How do you think this pandemic will change how we behave going forward? What will the “new normal” look like?

I'm waiting to see how it changes after mid-January.
