In response to the unprecedented closure of West Essex and all New Jersey schools in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, 24 of the Wire’s staffers chose to vlog about their experience one week into self-imposed quarantine.

Some of the Wire staffers volunteered to vlog a bit about their first week of living through self-imposed quarantine in response to the global coronavirus outbreak. Here, take some 60-second looks into how students are living, working and dealing with life in the time of COVID-19.
