March will mark one year since COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization and a national emergency by the United States. By mid month, schools and businesses were closing and people began sheltering in place at home. Demand for toilet paper and hand sanitizer skyrocketed. Some people began crafting masks as a way to prepare for an uncertain future.
Is there a particular moment that stands out for you? We’re collecting reader’s stories and/or photos to share in our March 18 issue.
Did you or a loved one suffer from the virus? What things do you look forward to coming back? Some people discovered new hobbies. Others fought back against mask requirements. All perspectives are welcome.
