On the Street

How are you handling the news of the coronavirus outbreak?

MELISSA DANELO

I'm a caregiver for my dad. He's 96, so I just go from our home to his home and back and try to stay out of the mainstream of people. We live in the country so we're out and away from people anyway. We're just handling it as we need to.


WENDY IRENE

We've set up an at-home schedule because [the kids] don't have school — which includes going for a walk or getting some kind of exercise.

Are you anxious at all?

No, because I just don't allow that to bother me. I feel like that's bad for your immune system if you get all worked up and stressed out about it.


THERESA SANDERS

I think we're coping well. We feel anxious like everybody else because of the uncertainty and the unknown, and the more things close down, the more sort of fearful I think people become.

How is your TP supply?

TP supply is fine. We did not panic. We only purchased when we needed to.


CODY LITTREL

Today is St. Patrick's Day and everything is closed ... which also happens to be my birthday. Kind of a whatever day. No restaurants. No bars.

Do you think it'll blow over?

Yeah. I'm thinking once it starts warming up and everyone starts getting outside and moving and we're not clogged up inside, it should clear itself up.


FELICITY ANDERSON

I'm not really that worried. I feel like if you just wash your hands and stay away from big crowds you'll be fine.

How old are you?

I'm 11.

Do you like staying at home?

I'd rather go to school because even at home you can't really go anywhere or do anything except homework.
