Grandfather with his Grandson before the COVID-19 pandemic


Each new case of COVID-19 is a person, a person with friends, family, hopes and dreams. This project will share the stories of people right here in Muskegon County, so people don't forget there's a face behind every new COVID-19 case. 


Emily Pfromm

A family trip to Wisconsin left a young Norton Shores mother with heart damage and questions about her future after she and her husband both contracted COVID-19. Emily Pfromm talks about her heart condition, the struggles she has keeping up with her 6-year-old son, and her unknown future in this most-recent video from the Mask Up Muskegon "Faces of the Cases" story series. She hopes sharing her story will encourage others to act safely during the pandemic.
