In March 2020, a global pandemic swept into this province, changing everything. At that time The Rooms chose to play a role in documenting this ever-changing landscape by “collecting COVID”. Businesses and individual residents contributed all sorts of responses to the pandemic, from the practical to the whimsical. The results offer some uniquely Newfoundland and Labrador reflections on COVID-19 and its ongoing effects.
