  3. Problems being Faced
  4. Problems people are having with covid They need to wear mask everywhere to avoid getting sick, most places are closed and you need to stay at least 6 feet away from everyone else, and it makes it difficult to see family. Travel is limited and if you live in a big city you are at a real risk. The issues with covid are also making it more difficult to deal with other issues such as racial issues and wildfires and hurricanes. It is hard to get food, and there are no jobs which means no money. Politics have to deal with covid with the whole mask wearing situation. Some politicians say it’s not necessary to wear them, while others say it is. The BLM protest have also interfered with covid because of the number of protesters going without mask and not social distancing.
