Due to COVID-19

Documenting the signs of the pandemic

During the coronavirus pandemic, daily life has come to a sudden standstill and businesses have had to respond. Signs on storefronts announce operational changes but these messages are also brimming over with solidarity, shared responsibility, and cautious optimism. This project attempts to document the temporary signs that have gone up across our communities.

This archive features 1214 sign photos from 111 cities across the world. You can learn more about the project or submit a photo of your own. We're also posting photos Instagram and Twitter.
