Description: Six digital photographs submitted by Jason Betzner '19, William & Mary alum and Williamsburg community member, documenting his family's experiences with adapting to new social distancing protocols. Descriptions of individual photographs are provided by Betzner: 1.) "School at home": "This picture is of my daughter, Elizabeth Betzner (age 7) doing her school work at home on March 17th. She is a first grade student at Matthew Whaley. She has had a difficult time adjusting to this new reality and some days are better than others. She really wants to go back to see her friends and her teacher." 2.) "Bye to my classroom": "I took this picture of my classroom at Warhill High School on Marcy 27th. We were allowed back in our rooms for 15 minutes to get needed teaching materials for virtual learning. The room was exactly as I left it on March 13th when schools closed down for the rest of the year." 3.) "Home haircut": "After a month of social distancing, my wife gave me a home haircut on April 11. She did a fairly good job!" 4.) "House closing": "My family had been searching for a new home since January. We closed on the purchase of our house on April 28th. At the Title company, we had to wear masks and sign all of the papers in the car. It was stressful but we did it!" 5.) "Letter to teacher": "My daughter has been writing notes back and forth to her first grade teacher at Matthew Whaley. This is one of her letters describing what she's been doing at home." 6.) "Flyover": "An F-22 and two P-51s flew over Williamsburg's hospitals on May 22nd to support healthcare workers on the front lines of the pandemic."
