"My cousin passed away four days ago in New Orleans. We can't get an autopsy for a while and there will be no funeral service."
"I've had less of an impact. I work for a solar company so we're running full steam. People are home and are thinking about self-sufficiency and thinking about the environment."
"A lot of people grab what they don't need at stores. I don't like the way some people are acting."
"I wonder when I'll be able to travel and see my family again."
"A friend of a friend is living with me and his three cats. It was only supposed to be temporary, but now he can't find a job or pay for a place to rent. The situation probably won't change until the fall."
"I'm getting over an ex-boyfriend and having to social distance is difficult."
"I miss going to restaurants and the movies."
"This is reaffirming my belief in community."
"My whole life is on hold." Job interviews are postponed and the medical college admission test is on hold.
