Prof. McNeill and the McNeill group’s experience with lab reopening following the COVID-19 shutdown were featured in a recent article and photoessay in Columbia News.
The experiences of my group highlighted a range of quarantine challenges. On one extreme we had my situation—two parents working full time from home with small children attending school remotely. On the other extreme we had group members quarantining alone and struggling with feelings of isolation. We are a close-knit group, so we’ve helped each other through this challenging time with empathy and kindness.
