Voices from the pandemic: Stories of coronavirus in Minneapolis

The Southwest Journal is documenting the coronavirus pandemic by recording the personal stories of local people whose daily lives are in a state of flux — a schoolteacher, an infection preventionist, a religious leader, a retired couple, a county commissioner, medical professionals, business owners, laid-off workers and more.

All interviews are conducted over the phone, and conversations are edited for length and clarity. Reporting for this project is by Zac Farber, Nate Gotlieb and Andrew Hazzard.
