The Sandy Springs community has an opportunity to document their coronavirus quarantine experience for history. The city’s history museum has launched a project that will show future generations how neighbors, businesses and organizations coped with the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.
Heritage Sandy Springs Museum recently announced the History is Now: COVID-19 Community Journal project. The museum preserves and exhibits Sandy Springs history from the city’s first residents through the Civil War to present day.
“In these unprecedented times, it’s important to consider how history will remember the COVID-19 health crisis and take steps to recognize and remember the ways in which our community has been affected,” said curator Allison Moore in a statement.
Journal entry forms are available on the museum website where people can write about their days in quarantine or personal experiences with the virus. Multiple entries by one person are allowed for submission on the website. Photos and videos can also be uploaded.
