In the nine months since California first issued its shelter-in-place order, more than 1.2 million people have been infected with the coronavirus, and millions more have been directly exposed to someone who has tested positive.

In each instance, residents are asked to quarantine or isolate from family and roommates and avoid in-person work for up to 14 days. That can be difficult when a person’s living space does not allow for room to remain socially distant. It may be near impossible for those who are caregivers to children or others and can’t avoid contact.

Are you a resident of California who has had to go to great lengths to sequester yourself from others during the pandemic because you’ve been sick or potentially infected? Have you had to find alternate spaces, such as cars or hotels, to find isolation? Share your experience below or send an email directly to colleen.shalby@latimes.com.
