Stuck in Vermont: How Vermonters Cope With Being Stuck at Home 

Episode 608

Published March 26, 2020 at 6:00 a.m. | Updated April 10, 2020 at 7:57 p.m.

The past week has been a whirlwind for many Americans as the global pandemic changes life as we know it. In Vermont, as in the rest of the country, many of us are stuck at home, doing our best to self-distance and flatten the curve of the coronavirus. Social media has become a place where people can connect and find community now that all events and gathering places have been shut down.

We asked you to share your coping mechanisms with us as you shelter in place. And you delivered big time with music, photos and videos that displayed the #Vermontstong spirit. Eva also FaceTimed with a brother and sister who have been overcoming social distancing since before it was the norm. For six years, the siblings have shared a weekly meal with each other from their homes in Vermont and Florida. Last weekend was the #273 Dinnernet. If Sean and Kelley can do it, the rest of us can make it, too. Hang in there, everyone, and be well.

Shooting date: 3/24/20

Music: Urian Hackney “Stay Inside” Cover of Nirvana “Stay Away”

Unicorn Heads, “A Mystical Experience”

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
