Three years ago, Governor Tim Walz announced a shelter in place order because of the COVID-19 virus.

Minnesota Now took a look back at the pandemic years with epidemiologist Michael Osterholm, and the noted University of Minnesota professor who coined a term that is appropriate for looking back on this time: ambiguous loss.

MPR News host Cathy Wurzer spoke to her about how to cope when closure is hard to find.

Additionally, listeners shared what they've lost — and gained — since lockdown.
