The coronavirus pandemic is often described as unprecedented, and one Canadian mom is making sure that feeling is never forgotten.
Before the pandemic becomes part of a history textbook, Natalie Long, a freelance graphic designer from Medicine Hat, Alta., has created a keepsake: a COVID-19 time capsule.
The 10-page workbook was originally made for her two children, but after sharing the document online, thousands of people across Canada became interested.

“All my friends messaged me saying it had been shared and it was everywhere.”
Long calls the workbook the COVID-19 Time Capsule, filled with writing prompts that people can use to fill in their memories and keep for years to come.
