Isolation Fatigue: How To Fight Back

COVID-19 has changed the world in ways no-one saw coming and this sudden change is making 2 in 3 Americans feeling anxious, depressed, lonely, or hopeless at least once a week amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hand sanitizer, toilet paper, alcohol, and baking yeast have all seen increases by hundreds of percent in sales. Meat plants have been forced to close down due to outbreaks of COVID-19 amongst their workers, but consumers have responded by doubling typical meat purchases.
