The New Normal

A look at life during a pandemic. From the front lines to those in isolation, COVID-19 has affected everyone and behind every door, stories unfold. 

Life after surviving coronavirus

Sadie Pimpleton is a single grandmother raising her grandchildren in Seattle. She recently survived COVID-19. She spent five days in the hospital and remembers feeling like it was the end for her. She is now back home and adjusting to life in lockdown with her grandkids. She leans on her community of other grandmothers and on her faith for support. The grandmothers group started sewing masks together as a way to cope, by doing something to help others. Pimpleton says things like sewing masks and her church livestreams every Sunday are what get her through each week.
