Unsettled. Frustrated. Changed? Tell us about your experience in the new COVID-19 wave

·1 min read

Wake up. Remind yourself it’s not March 2020. Then what?

With the resurgence of COVID-19, heavily driven by the delta variant and a majority unvaccinated population, this summer has felt eerily similar to the beginning days of the pandemic.

We face a lot of uncertainty. But as a community have also accomplished feats in resilience and patience. Many of us have taken stock in what matters most to us as individuals and members of something larger than ourselves.

We want to hear about your experience.

The delta variant is changing how the world is approaching the coronavirus pandemic. Masks are back. Vaccines are still our best chance at fighting back against the virus. Businesses are re-evaluating their return to office and some are mandating that employees be vaccinated.

We know this is an unsettling time. We want to know what you’re thinking about, if you are changing how you approach day-to-day life in Kansas City and how you are finding resilience to keep going.

It’s a particularly uncertain time for people who are immunocompromised, have disabilities or are otherwise particularly vulnerable. If that’s you, we want to hear your story.
