How is your life different now than it was before the pandemic?
I am a prisoner

I have (with help) learned how to download e-books from the library. My wife and I also assemble jigsaw puzzles, when we can find them.
What have you noticed has changed in your community since the outbreak? What has surprised you?
Not much change here! People still walk and talk to each other.

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

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

Nothing in particular.

Buy significant amounts of toilet paper and paper towels!
What would you want future generations to know about the 2020 pandemic? How would you recommend they prepare for it?
Remember the cold war and stock your bomb shelter with a 6 months supply of as much as possible (for those of you don' remember the threat of the Soviet Union).
How do you think this pandemic will change how we behave going forward? What will the “new normal” look like?
The "New Normal" will likely be very similar to the "Old Normal"
