The past year of pandemic life has stolen many things from us. But we’ve also been forced to take stock, innovate, and reassess everything we do. What’s working? What will we never do again? How have we made Orange County better in challenging times? Where do we go from here? We asked entrepreneurs, educators, fitness professionals, arts and nonprofits leaders, health care workers, an economist, and readers for their thoughts. One year after stay-at-home orders were first issued, here’s a look at where we are now.
