Covid journey

By Avaneesh, Age 9

The pandemic that started about two and a half years ago, has really changed everyone’s life. Since before the pandemic started, everything was normal, but now people have to take safety precautions, like wearing masks, sanitizing your hands, social distancing, and more! It was the middle of March in 2020, when the Coronavirus cases started.

I was in 2nd grade when it started, and I had to go virtual. My teachers had their own meet and we joined it. There were only a few months of school, so then 2nd grade soon ended. For the first one or two months, we bought food and masks online. Then later, my dad started getting groceries in person. Then 3rd grade started. For the entire year, we were virtual and only one day we got to meet our teacher.

In summer vacation, we went to different places because the covid cases got lower. Then 4th grade started. Finally, school started in-person, but we had to wear masks. But then around Christmas, people started traveling and since more people started traveling the covid cases got higher, but everything was okay. Now mask mandate will stop in March. Thank you!
