Stuck in Vermont: Sophie Quest Turns 86 During a Pandemic 

Episode 607

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.

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.

    Workers have begun dismantling the old coal-fired power plant on the Burlington waterfront which closed down in 1986. The long-awaited redevelopment is removing the outer brick layer of the building and retaining the interior steel framework, the centerpiece of a new city park on a waterfront that was once devoted to industry.
