Some people stay connected with friends and loved ones, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. But for many others, the pain of isolation and loneliness are not new and have gotten worse during times of quarantine and social distancing.

While the situation for some will evolve as Coronavirus recedes, the loneliness for others will continue.
