Stories from Self Isolation during #Covid19
Dear friends and family from near and from far, and people who have learned about this project through family, friends or online, welcome!

As we are all living history through this pandemic, I thought this might be a cool while to compile our experiences through story. The purpose of this collection of stories is to create a record of how we are all living through the #COVID19 pandemic

As a historian and a teacher of history, as well as someone who likes to hear and collect stories from around the world, I am hopeful that you will join me in creating a collection of our experiences. It is my hope to share these with my students present and in the future about how we coped, made it through the #Covid19 pandemic and did it together. With your permission, I will compile them into a small booklet.

If you have any questions, please email

With many thanks from me and future generations who will learn from your experiences.

Katy Whitfield :)
