Fort Myers Beach, FL

Ciera pulled up with her son D.J., 8 and daughter Faith, 3. Ciera was a server at a restaurant just off the beach until it shut down due to Covid-19. She started working as a delivery person for Instacart and Door Dash, but soon stopped. “Now it’s scary. I don’t want to go out and take that risk,” she said.

Ciera is hanging in there now financially, but she is looking at an uncertain future, depending on how long the pandemic lasts.
