'It's A Constant Discipline To Stay In The Here And Now'
Liz Fletcher's husband has cystic fibrosis, so she was already being precautious when out in public before the COVID-19 pandemic. In her audio diary for KOSU, Fletcher, who is a psychotherapist, says she's worried about when she may have to return to work in-person and what that could mean for the health of her husband and her patients.
KOSU's Kateleigh Mills and Matthew Viriyapah produced this story as part of the America Amplified initiative using community engagement to inform and strengthen local, regional and national journalism. America Amplified is a public media initiative funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. KOSU is part of the America Amplified network.
Kateleigh Mills has been reaching out to Oklahomans across the state to record first-person oral histories during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. These 'audio diaries' are being stored and archived by the Oklahoma Historical Society.
