Stuck in Vermont: Sophie Quest Turns 86 During a Pandemic 

Episode 607

Published March 19, 2020 at 6:00 a.m. | Updated September 3, 2020 at 2:24 a.m.

Life has turned upside down for many of us during the coronavirus pandemic. A national emergency has been declared in the country, and Vermont is also in a state of emergency. Most events have been canceled, colleges have gone online, schools are closing and many are choosing to self-isolate to flatten the curve.

Eva Sollberger lives with her almost 86-year-old mother, Sophie Quest. The elderly and those with health conditions are particularly vulnerable to this virus. When Eva’s scheduled shoot was canceled, she decided to interview her mother about aging, life in the age of COVID-19 and what the past few weeks of self-isolation have been like. As this situation progresses, we wish you all good health. Stay safe, everyone.
