Student Journalist MaryJane Johnson Shares Video Diary of Social Isolation

Monday, May 11, 2020

SF WEEKLY -- When the COVID-19 shelter-in place orders came down on March 16, I was abruptly cut off from my community. As a graduating senior at San Francisco State University and reporting intern at the San Francisco Examiner, the sudden shift to online classes, the loss of my classmates and friends and being cooped up inside left me feeling quite isolated.

To cope, I turned my camera on myself, documenting my experience sheltering with my partner and his parents in Berkeley. I wanted to document my feelings of social isolation, fear and anxiety.
