COLUMBUS, Ohio – It’s been three years since the world came to a standstill due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has changed the way we live, work and play.

From vaccines to learning to work at home, Wake up CBUS took a closer look at how our lives have changed and how we’re moving forward living with the virus.

When we look back three years ago, it’s easy to think back to the masks and social distancing that emerged during the pandemic.

We also look forward to the many ways we have changed during the pandemic. City leaders speak Columbus transforms before their eyes.

During the pandemic, leaders have called for virtual in-person learning, and that has led to learning challenges. Three years later, students of all ages are still trying to catch up.

Teachers are taking the classroom back to the drawing board. Educators in Central Ohio get creative to make up for lost time.

Supply chain operations were halted as cases of COVID-19 began to rise, affecting workflow. We looked at what companies have learned and their plans to remain sustainable in the future.

In addition, restaurants had to adapt quickly to stay in business when they closed during the pandemic. We explored how some of the new tactics restaurants have implemented are keeping them afloat and some of the challenges they still face.

In essence, COVID-19 was a public health emergency. The advent of vaccines and other medicines helped the world see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Columbus Health Commissioner Dr. Mysheyka Roberts discussed long-term effects of the virus and the pandemic and when we are ready for the next one.

Leaders have learned many lessons over the past three years.

Living with an infectious virus has led to laws that are forever changing the way health care is done in Ohio. Companies have adopted new strategies that have proven successful.

One business in central Ohio used QR codes to communicate with customers.

At the time, the pandemic brought uncertainty to many people’s lives. One central woman, Bonnie Brown, began creating watercolor paintings when the pandemic began three years ago.

Today, Bonnie Brown has created more than 1000 paintings. She wanted others to experience happiness, to be enlightened and to be inspired.
