Coronavirus in Cumbria: documenting the pandemic in our county

laptop notepadThe Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted on all aspects of life and is likely to have far reaching consequences for individuals, communities and the economy.

All our archive centres and libraries are closed to the public for the first time ever but Cumbria Archive Service continues its work.  We are seeking your help to assist us in recording the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in Cumbria.

Cumbria Archive Service is asking you to write about your experiences, take a photograph or collect published material which will document the pandemic. We will preserve and make this material available for research for future generations. Further information here.
