COVID-19 Collecting

The University of Wyoming’s American Heritage Center is launching its COVID-19 Collection Project, which was inspired by History Colorado’s COVID-19 collecting initiative. The COVID-19 Collection Project gathers together experiences, thoughts, observations, and stories from around Wyoming about the impact of the coronavirus on work, education, personal life, community, and beyond. In some aspects, this is a shared experience, but the impact on each individual is different and the way each individual views the pandemic and its impact is unique. These stories tell us what’s happening from an individual perspective, providing a personal and in-depth look at the impact of COVID-19 on our community.

To share your story, please visit our COVID-19 Collection Project page.
