Illinois is still under a stay-at-home order due to COVID-19. Therefore, all courses continue to be done through online/distance learning. The current plan is to be back in person for face-to-face labs July 13. I decided to spend this time doing distance learning in Maryland. I am staying with my sister so I can help with her crazy little ones (and let me tell you, I am absolutely loving every second of the insanity)! The down side to staying at my sister’s is that I can’t see my parents who are only five minutes away. We are practicing strict social distancing to help keep our loved ones safe. My sister is an essential worker, and must work out of the home, so it is best for us to all keep our distance from those outside the home.
