Cost of COVID: Project Launch 2020

Let’s face it. Over this past year, just about every part of daily life has been touched in some way by COVID-19.

What has COVID-19 cost you? Has it been the loss of common activities, the loss of income, or even the loss of life?

As Georgians we join the world in pushing a pathway through this pandemic, and adjusting to the many physically and mentally challenges forced upon us.

How are people taking care of their families, and  dealing with COVID related unemployment?

Can we find academic success in the distance learning classrooms?

How do we keep infection rates down among students and adults?

What are some of the actions local businesses hope will help them climb out of the economic standstill caused by this health crisis?

Which businesses have closed, and what new opportunities are open?

Mercer University’s Center for Collaborative Journalism, and its partners: The Telegraph, Georgia Pubic Broadcasting and 13WMAZ are answering these and many more questions in a series called “The Cost of COVID.”

This series takes a close look at the impact COVID-19 has had on the lives of people living in this part of the state.

Your views and experiences matter, and that’s why we want to hear from you. Email us at [email protected] .

As a community we can navigate through the difficulties, identify the successes and know the cost of COVID.
