Bonding through Isolation: COVID Bubble Unity

To best protect against COVID-19, people found their in-person interactions mostly limited to those they lived with and a select group of family and friends. This chosen group became known as a person's "COVID Bubble". Despite being more isolated than ever, this provided an opportunity to bond more closely to those left around them.
