Abstract

The COVID-19 virus has affected everyone around the world. At the moment there is no cure for the virus but thousands have recovered. This has caused economic problems from big companies down to individual families. For example, Costa Rica. I will focus on the town of Santa Elena and surrounding areas. The data that was collected was based on a survey that was sent out to the community. The survey included questions referring to their jobs, sectors, and reasons for suspension of contracts. I limited the surveys to the surrounding areas and to specific questions that I wanted to focus on. The reason for this research is to attempt to come up with possible solutions that can help with these communities. The area is heavily relied on tourism as their main source of income. The impacts differ from the beginning and throughout the course of the pandemic.
