In March 2020, concerns over the coronavirus’ potential spread caused major disruptions to daily life for large part of American society, Tucson was no exception. We went around on March 17, St. Patrick’s Day to ask local business how they were adapting. This day ended up being the last day restaurants, bars and all places where groups of people congregate were open in Tucson for at least forty days. But, social distancing did not keep Tucsonans apart, a wave of creative energy, entertainment and innovation happened online as people adapted to their new realities.
