Museum of Health Care calls for personal stories from Canadians affected by COVID-19

If you ever wanted to be a part of history, this is your chance! The Museum of Health Care at Kingston is issuing a nation-wide call, urging all Canadians to share their personal COVID-19 stories in an effort to lay the foundation for a future COVID-19 Collection at the Museum.

Canadians who have experienced any of the following are encourage to add their personal story to the COVID-19 project:

  • illness due to COVID-19;
  • personal loss of any kind;
  • currently employed in government, education, healthcare, or business owners who have been affected by COVID-19;
  • have had their lives drastically altered due to the pandemic.

All stories, in any form, are welcome. Whether by video, email or handwritten letter, the value of personal experiences of this pandemic cannot be understated.

The Museum is pleased with the response so far to an earlier call for COVID-19 material artifacts such as vaccination vials, personal protective equipment, and other related medical items. These items will be an excellent addition to the its already well-established collections from past pandemics. Featured alongside these important artifacts on display at the Museum are the stories of the human impact of these historic events—something the Museum is looking to repeat with the COVID-19 Collection.
