Covid-19 Crises

Description (Dublin Core)

I chose the photograph of a closed store sign because during this pandemic a lot was changed due to the given circumstances. At the beginning of Covid, everything was closed that was not essentials, due to that I stayed without a job. I was unemployed and was receiving no alternative sources of income. This was scary to think about as there were bills that had to be payed and working at a new job could have put you at risk of catching this newly formed infection. Going to the stores that were open were also a different and frightening experience, there were so many people not social distancing at the grocery stores and etc who were not even wearing masks or using gloves that it was putting yourself in danger just for going out to buy the basics needed for living. Now a few months later, more places are opening but the question is, is this a good or a bad thing? I am now reemployeed, but I am getting paid the same as I used to even though I am risking my life each and every day coming in contact with hundreds of people a day, cleaning restrooms and making sure im well protected at all times. Still nothing can go back to normal, people cannot just go to the fair or the movies or skating as they could before this part of soon to be history because of its risks. It is important to stay safe and to continue to push through these times so that one does not just become a statistic in a book of the many of millions that have died during theses times due to Covid-19.
