The pandemic year: How the virus changed life in the Roanoke and New River valleys

The pandemic year: How the virus changed life in the Roanoke and New River valleys

  • 5

As the one-year anniversary of the pandemic lockdown neared, we talked a lot in the (now virtual) newsroom about how we would mark the occasion.

We talked of how this pandemic had universally changed everyone’s life. We thought perhaps the best way to mark the anniversary would be to let people tell us about their own journeys.

Over the past week, people from across our region shared, in their own words, how their lives have changed over the past 12 months. The interviews have been edited and condensed for clarity and length.
