Cambridge 2020: Local History of a Pandemic

The City of Cambridge is looking for assistance from the entire community to capture a unique snapshot in time. Cambridge 2020: Local History of a Pandemic is an archive project to help collect personal experiences living, working and coping with the COVID-19 pandemic from everyone in the community including residents, business owners, first responders, cultural groups and organizations.

Please share your files with us below. We will collect pieces as long as the pandemic continues, and look to share the collection with the community, Council and staff when the situation permits.
