In March 2020, when California issued a shelter-in-place order to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we didn't know how long the pandemic would cause upheaval or how it would affect us. We all adapted in different ways. How has this past year changed you?
For the one-year anniversary, Ricardo Vela and the News and Information Outreach in Spanish team asked ANR colleagues to reflect on their feelings about the past year.
NOS produced the video “One year later.” In the video, 18 ANR colleagues and 4-H members describe how the pandemic has changed their lives. In a year of trials and tribulations, we all have a story to tell. Some lost loved ones, while one found love. Some are sad, some grateful, and others share messages of hope.

UC colleagues from across the system also shared their stories of hardship, courage, gratitude and resilience at https://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/news/covid-19-year-reflections.
