COVID-19 in Our Community
COVID-19 has touched every corner of the globe since the first cases were reported in Wuhan, China, in early 2019, but Miami’s high population density and large size have made it an especially prominent epicenter for the virus within the United States. While Coral Gables Senior High has been able to partially open for in-person learning, the effects of the pandemic on the student body and on the community of Coral Gables are expected to linger. As cases begin to rise again in November 2020, our community continues to adjust to the “new reality” of life during a pandemic, including mandatory masks, virtual learning, and social isolation. This story grid examines how COVID-19 has changed the lives of community members, altered the way schools function, and impacted extracurriculars at Gables.
