Hobbies From Home: Making the Most of COVID-19

View Gallery

Since March, California has been in and out of shutdowns and stay-at-home orders. The initial order was put in place on March 19th, 2020 by Governor Gavin Newsom. It mandated that all California residents shelter in place and only leave for essentials. Schools were required to move online, residents had to work virtually if their job allowed, restaurants were only open for takeout, salons and retail stores were closed, and beaches and parks allowed limited access to the public if any.

Eventually, the initial order was lifted and California began to reopen, but many schools and corporate jobs remained online to limit social gathering. However, with the climbing death rate and hospital capacity in California, a new stay-at-home order was issued by Newsom on December 5th, 2020 for different regions of the state.

COVID-19 not only takes lives every day, but it has also caused many to lose their jobs or small businesses due to the prolonged closures.
