Ethan Damon, a student at Arrowhead High School, says “I have gotten COVID[-19] once along with my mom and brother. Since my parents are divorced I quarantined with my mom and brother for roughly two weeks. Overall it had no effect on me and I had no symptoms of having it and since I’m already online schooling nothing changed with that, so my grades didn’t change really at all.”
