The response to the COVID-19 pandemic has meant radical changes for scientists as they adjust to laboratory shutdowns, online teaching, and travel restrictions.

APS News and Physics want to hear about your experiences. How are you carrying out your research? What steps are you taking to help your students or to stay in touch with collaborators? How are you using your physics training during the pandemic?

Tell us your story in a brief (100–200 words) letter to physics@aps.org. Each week, APS News and Physics will select a few of these letters to share online.

Stay safe and healthy.
