30 Before And After Pandemic Photos's Profile


A lot can change in a year.

People in the US were encouraged to quarantine at home aside from essential services, wear masks, and practice social distancing. Many businesses closed, large events such as concerts were pushed back or cancelled, and many schools moved to virtual learning. At the time, many thought the spread of the virus would halt, and normal life would continue in a few months.

Got my first shot of the vaccine today at the Mall of America along with other teachers. It was really well organized! I entered into a private vaccination space, but exited into the mall. Too bad I didn’t have any shopping to do! #staysafemn
