I got COVID: nine personal stories from Novocastrians

Who among us will ever forget March of 2020 and how bizarre we felt when the news of Covid came to us. Some were indignant, some were dismissive, some were scared, and everyone had an opinion. It was a strange sunny autumn in Newcastle. I came home from my yoga class one day and my partner said to me "you're going to have to stop doing that." I was annoyed, but shortly thereafter, I didn't even have a say. The gym had closed. Our little apartment quickly became our entire world. At one stage we were cautious to even open windows because we were afraid of the virus. At another stage I was climbing the 14 floors of my building in a mask for exercise because I was afraid to go outside.
