The global coronavirus pandemic of 2020 has impacted all of us in one way or another ­— be it socially, politically and most certainly, personally. Whether it’s canceling travel plans, postponing vacations, or hosting weddings virtually, we’ve been grounded as if we’re teenagers being punished for staying out late.

With that in mind, I decided to ask about 25 people I know, some better than others, exactly how this unwelcome and unforgiving virus has impacted them personally and how it has changed their ways of life.
