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?

March 16 2020. First day of PA quarantine where I am a teacher. We all thought we would be back in 2 weeks.

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

School is still different. Temp checks, masks, trying to keep kids separate but knowing it is not possible.

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

Good. Reading is my escape.

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

The large number in my area that do not wear masks.

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

I am not currently working from home but but teaching my students online and my 2 school age kids as well as 2 younger kids

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

Yes and currently ok. All are at school or daycare.

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

My school uses Microsoft teams and seesaw for our students and zoom for faculty meetings.

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

My daughter's first birthday was done with my parents over zoom, as well as the other 3.

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

We did get a dog but it was planned before the shut down. My older 2 helped to take care of it.

What do you wish you knew before the pandemic began?

That we would be shut down the remainder of the yer not just 2 weeks.

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

Shut down sooner and follow guidelines with out arguing.

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