Less than halfway into March of 2020, the residents of Alberta were struck by the very real possibility of a pandemic and many cities stood still from the uncertainty of what was to come next.
Days after news broke of the COVID-19 Virus, the small town of Cochrane, approximately 30 minutes West of Calgary, fell into a period of unprecedented quietness. No one knew what was happening next.
After it was announced that schools and all non essential businesses were to close, many residents of the town succumbed to the panic and streets were left as empty as the stores.
As the days went by, the town started to come together again and people were out support people, knowing they all faced tough times ahead.
This is the story of a small town in the first few days facing a pandemic.
