COVID-19 left a lasting impression on 2020. In early summer, people just wanted some interaction with others so they took to the streets for the Saturday night cruises on Broadway. Frontline healthcare workers in our hospital, clinic and senior living facilities, along with first responders, put themselves on the frontline of defense and their efforts didn’t go unappreciated. School shut down in mid-March for the year, changing the social culture for our school-aged children. Teachers missed their students and vice versa. Perhaps the saddest part of it all was how the virus isolated family, friends and relatives from their loved ones in senior care faciltiies due to the extreme risk COVID posed to older citizens.

COVID-19 hands-down pick for top 2020 news event
