Glenwood Springs resident Dana Wood said that she's found a silver lining during the COVID-19 pandemic.
She started seeing someone right before the stay-at-home order was put into place. They took their relationship online, FaceTiming every day for about an hour.
“I didn’t have a feeling of isolation,” Wood said. “It was the same feelings you would get if you were actually going on a date with someone. I got ready the same way — put on some makeup, nice clothes.”
She said talking online helped them establish a deep connection, one that may not have occurred under normal circumstances.
"I think this has truly been a rewarding experience for myself and for him," Wood said. "There are silver linings with this."
