Shoppers and shopkeepers in Nisswa navigated the changed Main Street shopping experience of the coronavirus pandemic. Families were out shopping in what is a lakes area summer draw — downtown Nisswa. Shops offered hand sanitizer and signs provided reminders to wear face masks.

Growing up in the Brainerd lakes area I realized that I never wanted to leave, so it is a true blessing that I was able to find a job at the Dispatch doing something I love. As a visual journalist, I work in the mediums of photography and videography to bring our readers everything from sports, hard news, weather and local events to slice of life documentation of our coverage area.
