Update, Feb. 8, 2021: This outreach is now closed. Thank you for sharing your stories. Watch out for coverage that came from our readers talking to us about their experiences.

Original story: Have you or has someone in your Berkeley household had COVID-19? Have you been part of the medical response? Berkeleyside wants to help our community better understand what it’s like to contract this disease, get tested and seek help, especially since symptoms can range from nonexistent to life-threatening. We will follow up with you directly in advance if we plan to share your story. If you would like to participate, please respond by Monday, Dec. 14. If you have questions, email emilie@berkeleyside.com.

Berkeleyside is Berkeley, California’s independently-owned local news site. Learn more about the Berkeleyside team. Questions? Email editors@berkeleyside.org.
