We Stayed at Home: A Record of Geneva During the 2020 Pandemic
The Geneva Historical Society’s mission is telling Geneva’s stories. Join us in documenting this historic moment.
What might future historians and generations need to understand the COVID-19 Pandemic? All of us have a story to tell and we invite you to share your story on how the Pandemic is affecting your life. Are you in an at-risk group or have someone in your home who is? How has the stay-at-home order affected you? Do you shop less or use grocery delivery service? What has been your experience at the store? If you eat out regularly, do you continue to get takeout or delivery from those restaurants? If you are on Facebook or Instagram, do you have a favorite meme or post (PG-13) that sums up your experience? For students at home, what has your experience been like? What is your new normal?
Do you have any images, audio, narratives, files, or video documenting your experiences? Examples: photos of empty shelves, church newsletters about cancelled services, or screenshots of online services? Did you have digital meetups or parties, meetings? Screenshots? Do you have photos of closed places, i.e. church signs that say CANCELLED. If so, please be sure to mark the question below and a Historical Society staff member will be in contact with you.
Through social media and our website we will regularly show submissions to We Stayed at Home. Submitted materials may or may not be kept permanently and Historical Society staff will determine what is kept.
If posting on social media, use the hashtag #pandemicgenevany.
