Your Questions Answered: How To Navigate Changing Relationships In The Pandemic

The U.S. officially began vaccinating people against COVID-19 on Monday, starting with Sandra Lindsay, a critical care nurse in New York City. The first vaccination came the same day that the country hit another grim milestone of 300,000 dead from the disease.

Though vaccinations have begun, the pandemic is still raging and affecting people in all kinds of ways, including their relationships with partners, family and friends.

We asked you to share your questions with us on how to navigate those changing relationships. To help answer those questions, we’re joined by Dr. Lexx Brown-James, a marriage and family therapist and sexologist based in St. Louis, and NPR’s Cory Turner, who covers parenting and education.

To hear more about how parents can help their kids feel less anxious right now, check out this episode of NPR’s Life Kit podcast. Listen on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

In participating regions, you’ll also hear a local news segment that will help you make sense of what’s going on in your community.
