Hi all. My name is Grace McGill and I've been affected by COVID-19. I'm affected because I can't do what I would normally do and I'm finding it difficult emotionally as well. What I find most difficult is that everywhere in the world is closed and I don't really know how long this is going to last. And I'm also struggling a great deal not being able to see my sister. I'm not in Maidstone at the moment, but I'm sure I'd find it incredibly hard if I was, because I wouldn't be allowed to go and see my mum and dad, which would have been quite difficult. Generally I'm usually quite active, go out, do this this, do a lot, and I'm finding it very hard to adjust to not doing a huge amount.
