“I don’t want to bring this home and further the spread…it’s very scary for me to know that I go head first into these places not knowing what I could come out with if I’m not very careful”Tiana, 28 March 2020
Tiana Melendez is a mother, hairstylist and partner in her husband’s disaster clean up company based in New Jersey, USA. They usually deal with household floods and fires but recently, COVID-19 clean ups have become the norm.
She took ten minutes between running errands for household essentials and work to send this postcard from her car. At times, the WhatsApp connection faded but the strength of her fear and anxiety came through.
Since recording this postcard her father has presented with Coronavirus symptoms.
