It has been nearly a year since Humboldt County Public Health issued a shelter-in-place order that required local residents to stay in their homes except for essential outings to slow the spread of COVID-19. Few could have predicted what the next year would bring, the myriad ways it would change our lives (and us) or what we would lose. As the anniversary approaches, we'd like to hear your stories. How has COVID-19 changed you and your life? What do you miss the most? What has gotten you through and sustained you? What have you learned? Twenty years from now, what moments and feelings will you remember most?
