Work from home becomes the new normal
By Yasmeen Ali
Although there are those who are forced to work on the front lines of dealing with COVID-19, some parents and students are able to work from home. To prevent the spread of disease, my family is part of the many families that are home to make sure we are clean and protected while making the most of what we can in quarantine.
Ever since the news spread about COVID-19, many people were in a panic due to the rapid spread of the pandemic. Due to the drastic changes and increase in victims in California, our governor has placed a shelter-in-place policy which has impacted daily life.
During this pandemic, my parents are working from home on their computers; meanwhile, my brother and I have a dedicated space to do our work.

Due to circumstances of quarantine having their jobs involve sitting constantly at a computer screen, I help my mom when she’s baking for more quality time.
