The San Mateo County Historical Association would like to collect stories that chronicle changes to people’s daily lives in the wake of COVID-19. Journal entries from the past provide a glimpse into what daily life was like during a specific time period. They also provide insight by showing individual reactions to significant historical events.
The San Mateo County Historical Association’s valuable collection of memories of the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake relate to a single day’s incident. This time, there is an on-going adjustment to a necessary change in life-style. Everyone is invited to share their stories of daily life, the impact of protests and other events during the shelter-in-place. People of all ages, races, sexes, backgrounds are all welcome to participate.
Teachers, this is a great idea for a class/group project! Jump to the Children’s Stories section for instructions.
