Getting Some Face Time

Trish Bahrenfuss has grown accustomed to seeing her mom, Mary O’Connor, on a daily basis. But they’ve had to get creative with their interactions in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As much as she would like to see her mom, to hold her hand or touch her face, Bahrenfuss understands that simply isn’t possible in this current climate.

“You just think of all of the elderly people that are out there and you don’t want them coming down with anything or jeopardizing their health,” Bahrenfuss, a Webster City resident and longtime math teacher at WCHS, said. “This is just the way it has to be right now.”
