What is it like to have COVID-19? 

Over the summer, CBC Saskatchewan searched for people all over the province to share their experiences with the virus.  We asked them all the same questions so we could compare and contrast their symptoms, illness length, and the impact the novel coronavirus had on them and their families. These are their stories.

When did you first get sick?
