The Oaklandside wants to help our community better understand what it’s like to contract COVID-19 and seek help in our city, especially since Alameda County is seeing a massive rise in cases this winter.

Please tell us about this experience below, and we will follow up with you directly in advance if we plan to share your story.

We would appreciate you getting in touch before Tuesday, December 8.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. Talking about how the pandemic has impacted our lives and communities can be difficult and painful, and we are committed to treating your story with care and compassion.
