Remember a year ago when schools were closing?

We thought we had scored extra vacation time to bake bread and make tie-dye sweatsuits.

We’ve since learned so much about physical distancing, wearing masks and herd immunity.

As mid-March quickly approaches, so does one year since COVID-19 changed our lives.

On Friday March 12, CBC Kids News will be hosting a livestream called “COVID-19: One year later.”

During the special, host Saara Chaudry will look at highlights and trends from the past year as well as what the next year could hold.

We will bust some myths about COVID-19, talk to experts and check in with a celeb or two.

We’re inviting you to participate by telling us how you felt when it all started versus how you feel now.

Use our template to show us it started and how it’s going.

Here is one CBC Kids News contributor Saara submitted:
