My name is James Rayroux and I’m a graduate student intern with the COVID19 archive at Arizona State University. Today, is February 21st, 2021, at 0930 hours, and I’m speaking with Carolyn Rayroux. Carolyn, I first- I want to ask about your pandemic experience, but before I do, I first need your informed consent to record and publish your response to the COVID-19 archive. The COVID-19 archive is a digital archive at Arizona State University that is collecting pandemic experiences. Do I have your consent to record your response, and add it to the publicly accessible archive with your name?

Yes, you do.

Can you start by telling me your, uh, full name, your age, race, and where you live?

Carolyn Rayroux 0:52
Okay, full name is Carolyn Rayroux. I am sixty-six years old. I live in Carlsbad, New Mexico, and I am a Caucasian.

I have just one quick question about the pandemic. We’ve experienced a lot of negative and disruptive changes in the last year, but maybe not everything’s been bad. What’s one thing that’s happened in your life during the pandemic that’s actually been a positive or beneficial experience?

Carolyn Rayroux 1:21
Well, mostly, I think people have come back together as- that’s probably the most positive thing, you know, as, as, looking at that direction.

James Rayroux 1:33
Thank you so much for your time today, and for contributing to this digital public archive and helping us document this moment in history.
