COVID-19 Stories

Share Your COVID-19 Story

It is an unprecedented and historic time we are living through. That is what we have all been hearing for more than a year now. So share those stories with us! The Altoona Area Historical Society is collecting your stories of how COVID-19 has impacted your life. Social distancing, working from home, virtual learning, contactless delivery, and so much more! The best time for us to preserve this historic time is while we are living through it.

We are looking for stories from people of all ages and experiences. These could include journal entries, audio recordings, videos, pictures, oral history interviews, art, objects and so much more.

You can share these with us by getting ahold of us through the form below, emailing us at, or mailing it to us at 104 2nd Street SE, Altoona, IA 50009.
