Coronavirus stigma affects pandemic response

Body
When University of Oklahoma student Leslie Miller’s niece realized in the spring she probably had COVID-19, before it was clear how widespread the pandemic would be, she tried not to talk about it. Even though there were still many unknowns about the disease, including how it spread, her niece did not want to be stereotyped as someone who parties or acts irresponsibly, said Miller, who is working toward a Ph.D in sociology.

East Middle School Student Council makes pillows for Garfield Kindergarten students

Body
The COVID-19 virus has tried to put a stop on some of the service projects East Middle School Student Council does every year. However, it has not stopped them. They have tried to find several service projects they can accomplish. One of these service projects was to make pillows for the kindergarten students at Garfield Elementary. Members started making the homemade pillows in mid-October. The pillows are made of fleece and cotton stuffing. East teacher and Student Council Sponsor Susan Schatz reported, “This group has put a lot of effort into this service project, and they have enjoyed their time making them. We hope the children will enjoy the pillows.”
