[Interviewer]:

How has COVID-19 impacted your daily life?

[Kim (staff @ Whispering Waters]

How has COVID-19 impacted your daily life? So if you turn these, right over here, they're asking number one.

[Eddie]

Okay. it's impacted it by being different, which we have to do, and we realize that. Because of the restricted things, we can't go visiting and this and that, which we realize has to be done, and hopefully the public all feels that way. Thank you.

[Interviewer]:

Mm-hmm (affirmative). What did you take for granted before COVID that you appreciate more now?

[Eddie]

Well, we really appreciate the freedom that we had and just took for granted, which once wants you to lose it, you realize what you had and didn't appreciate.

[Interviewer]:

Mm-hmm (affirmative). How do you think the pandemic will change society once it's over?

[Eddie]

I suppose it'll make a big change to a point where people might hopefully take a good lesson that we shouldn't take everything in life for granted and be as selfish as we were.

[Interviewer]:

How did isolation affect you, and how has this affected your relationships with family and friends?

[Eddie]

Well, it has to the point where, you could come and go, and now it's just by phone and stuff and the odd visitation, whichever, but that's about it. It just that you don't have the communication and the closeness you did have. That's about it.

[Interviewer]:

Mm-hmm (affirmative). And last one, what memories keep you hopeful, and what possible future keeps you going?

[Eddie]

Well, kind of hoping that they find a cure for it. It makes you wonder what they done in 1918, if they anything they came through that. So, with today's technology and knowledge of medical situations, we're hoping it shouldn't take all that long, and maybe the general public needed a wake up call, and I think we got it. Thank you.

[Interviewer]:

Okay. Thank you.
