The Pandemic & My Hometown: Elena Knopp

On March 30, 2020, the Virginia Governor announced that there would be a state-wide stay-home order set in place until June 10, 2020. Due to this, life is looking so different for just about everyone.

Fed-Ex Field, home of the Washington Redskins, is now being used as a COVID-19 testing area. I also visited Washington D.C.

The Pandemic & My Hometown: Sarah Barnes

On March 29, 2020, I explored my community to see how the COVID-19 pandemic was affecting Cary, North Carolina. I ventured to some of the schools I attended growing up, as well as several places I would usually frequent while home for the summer.
I discovered that although society was taking a hard hit, the sun was still out and the sky was still blue. While we are temporarily unable to live our regular lives, we should take this time as an opportunity to reflect and be thankful for our community’s efforts to keep each other safe.
Town of Cary Fire Station No. 8 and Police District Office is still in full operation during the stay-at-home order, March 29, 2020 in Cary, North Carolina. SARAH BARNES
