When Covid hit, everyone was affected…Panic at a liquor store…A commercial cook who loses her sense of taste and never fully regains it…A doctor who spends up to four hours per shift trying to find a hospital willing to take critical patients…A mortuary suffering a space crisis…People suffering with long-Covid…All while the community debates lockdowns, masks, and vaccine requirements.
These local community stories offer individual points of view including those of medical professionals, educators, churches, service industries, and our monastery. Along with some Letters to the Editor, news articles and Facebook posts, these narratives capture the unexpected and fascinating stories from people in rural Idaho County who were navigating as best they could through an unprecedented, historic, and life-threatening pandemic.
