What is grief?
Grief is an emotional reaction to a significant loss. Sorrow and heartache are words used to describe feelings of grief. Whether you lose a beloved person, animal, place, object or a valued way of life (such as your job, marriage or good health), some level of grief will naturally follow. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many are also grieving job loss, financial difficulties, change in routines or habits and social contact due to physical distancing or quarantine.
