Hardin County reached a milestone this week: more than 100 residents have tested positive for COVID-19 since March. It’s not something to celebrate, but we wanted to use this space today to look back at the past four months and imagine what’s waiting for us in the coming days, weeks and years.

Whether you’re a business owner, a parent, a local government official, or someone who calls this place home, it’s unlikely your life was untouched by the coronavirus pandemic. Jobs were reduced or lost entirely, education was interrupted, weddings and funerals were postponed, and we all became more aware of our current state of health.
