Overnight.. Essential Workers
Story shared by Bronson B. of Carlsbad
COVID-19 has changed my life as well as the life of many people around me. It was spring break at Point Loma Nazarene University when the order came to leave campus. a month before, my girlfriend was pulled from her study abroad courses in Italy and had to self quarantine before the virus began to spread in the United States. My father, who works at Costco, saw lines nearly half a mile long as early as three in the morning as people began panic buying. My mother worked in health care and hired the most nurses ever to serve on the front lines of the virus. Overnight, they both became essential workers.
