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?

When the country band and Line dancing that I was enjoying stopped. Also when forced to wear mask everywhere I went.

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

I feel as if I have been imprisoned fr a year now and resent the stupidity of many that agree to live i fear while they allow the government to literally control their daily living. The public is fed lies and hype in order to keep them scared and under control. I refuse to live in fear.

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

I am angry wit the way so many have been so wiling to give up their rights for a virus that may be no worse than the flu, SARS, H1N1, or the Spanish Flu of years ago. By the way, this virus is SARS with a twist. Manufactured in a high level viral factory or lab in Wuhan,China. This was intentional.

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

So many small businesses have been forced to close permanently. The livlihood of those still struggling to stay open, and only able to do half of the normal business daily that they did before this plague. I am surprised to see gullible people creating lung issues by wearing those useless masks outdoors. That is where the normal oxygen flow is essential to healthy lung function. The average American is sucking in too much carbon dioxide which is expelled by the lungs after oxygen intake. Remember when mask and hoodies were not permitted when going int banks? We are all being separated, being led to "tell on your neighbor", and giving up our God given rights guaranteed by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. United we stand, divided we fall. Our young people are being forced into depression, as well as those in nursing homes that cannot hold or hug their loved ones. Every year we have new viruses, and new strains of flu, but we do not go into hiding or wear face coverings. The common cold is a covid virus. I am very afraid that we as a nation,and a people have been set up and sold out

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?


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

I substitute teach, could not work for months. I did not make enough to qualify for unemployment. I am doing some subbing now

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?

Not an essential employee. Home is normal as usual

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


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


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?


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

I use message and text with friends and family Once in a while video chat. Did go away for Christmas No one and nothing was gong to stop that. I stay away from managed news now as I am tired of being lied to and treated as if I am too dumb to comprehend what they are doing to us.

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

I refused to

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

I have animals but adopted them before the plague hit

What positive things did you contribute to or notice take place?

I tried to stay upbeat and busy

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

My daughter in law got it and came through it just fine. Another fried,who also worked in a nursing home,got it and came through just fine.

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


What do you wish you knew before the pandemic began?

How it would affect our election system, and throw this country into chaos, which was fed by the ignorant and managed media. Now our country is on a very dangerous slippery slope.

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

How do you prepare people for something they have never gone through before? I would not shut the country down. Take better sanitary precautions, take vitamins and minerals, eat healthy,and exercise on a regular basis

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

I do not want a new normal The old one was just fine

Is there anything else you would like to add that hasn't already been asked above?

Just asking people to wake up. Realize you are on the same edge that Germany was on before the Nazi takeover. Read your history. Teach your kids,true history. Teach them to really read. The find a copy of the Constitution and Bill of Rights and have them memorize both. Also have a Bible in the home and teach them that God does exist and is in charge of this world, even when it does not look like it. We are a Christian-Judeo nation and freedom of religion does not mean that another migrates here an "appears to be offended by ours." That is not freedom of religion.. We are being segregated, pitted against one another, and led over the cliff by a bunch of Judas goats. Please open your eyes and seek truth.
