COVID-19 Frenzy

COVID-19 Frenzy

There was a new vocabulary including Social Distancing, Flattening The Curve and Herd Immunity. We made many, many face masks to donate as well as for our family and friends. We were grateful for our First Responders and our health. We lost some of our freedoms when confined to our homes during the quarantine. We hoarded toilet paper, hand sanitizers and washed hands frequently. We had Coronavirus anxiety, uncertainty, fear and worried often about the pandemic, jobs and the economy. We wondered how long it would last if there would be a vaccine or cure.
