As the novel COVID-19 virus continues to upend the lives of many, Portland Monthly has been trying to cover the outbreak with up-to-date information and honest insight. From our daily roundup of what Oregonians need to know on any given day to the effect coronavirus is having on small businesses, a conversation with OSU professor Regan Gurung about how communication and patience will help us navigate this crisis to a profile on the Oregon doctor who sent a letter to Vice President Mike Pence that now has more than 5,000 signatures of medical professionals, we're trying to cover the crisis from all angles.
In this feature, which will be updated every week, we'll ask Portland performers, medical professionals, grocery store employees, an Uber driver, a comedian, and so many more people, a few questions: How has life changed for you and your profession? What's quarantine been like for you? And, of course, how are you coping?
