Tell us more about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected you or your family. We are just more stressed out. I have been fortunate to continue working and to often work from home, but neither of us are young. Both my wife and I are higher risk for serious consequences from covid-19. We have not been able to visit family including my mother who is 79 and our daughters because of the risk of illness.

We sincerely wish our president had chosen to trust us with the truth about the pandemic. We are educated and took the pandemic seriously from the start. We have many people in our community who took the president’s lies as truth. Thus the risk of illness is higher in our community than it should be.

What do you need to stay healthy and take care of yourself or your family during this pandemic? I need republicans and all others to follow CDC safety recommendations all of the time like we do!
