Jessica, 20, lives in Denver, Colorado, USA. She is studying at college two days a week and works full time. Life post Covid-19 has been challenging for Jessica. Despite the stay-at-home order imposed in Denver, Jessica continues to work as she is a manager at a supermarket and is considered a key worker. Her studies however have been suspended as all teaching is now done online. What Jessica misses the most is not being able to hang out with her friends over the weekend, especially since a lot of her spare time was spent visiting friends and meeting up to eat.
