Covid-19 impacts individuals in different ways. It has ended the semester for college students, eliminated prom for juniors, impacted graduation for seniors, and led to the deaths of thousands of people.

Residents worldwide are participating in virtual summits and conferences to discuss how the communities will be able to contribute to keeping down public distress. During Covid-19, people are moving two different ways. 

Some are complying with Gov. Hogan’s mandates while others disobey the executive orders. 

Artists like Tory Lanez, are holding virtual parties and jam sessions to help relieve the stress that Corona has put everyone in. Others are entertaining themselves in their homes through an app called Tik Tok. Users create video content that may involve them dancing, singing, joking, sharing stories, and doing other activities. 

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Tik Tok has been ranked as the third most frequently used and downloaded app. According to an article in The Guardian, “Memes aside, TikTok is taking proactive measures to educate people about the spread of the virus, at a time when many major social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, are pushing back against the spread of misinformation.”
