A Firsthand Account as Our Newsroom Quarantines
On March 13th, Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD) schools closed their doors due to the current pandemic. Since then, students have been in quarantine and it hasn’t been easy.
According to the CDC, in the United States there are 525,704 confirmed COVID-19 cases and the death toll is at 20,486 people. In California, there are 22,583 confirmed cases and 640 deaths according to the Los Angeles Times. Governor Gavin Newsom, with his stay at home order, has canceled school indefinitely, and in SAUSD we still wait to hear if schools will be closed for the rest of the year from Superintendent Jerry Almendarez.
Quarantine to everyone looks a little different, whether it’s catching up on sleep or school work, binging shows, or being with family. Here’s a snapshot of what life is like for the Grizzly newsroom during this time.
