Mission Viejo COVID-19 Archive

The Mission Viejo Library and Cultural Arts department is documenting the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on our community and surrounding areas for our local history archive. If you have photographs, images, artwork or other visual records that capture the impact of the pandemic, we invite you to submit these for inclusion in our COVID-19 archive. 

All images must be submitted digitally. They may include photographs, artwork, or other similar mediums. Images will be curated and made available for public use without restrictions on the library’s local history website. 

We are especially interested in images that show:

  • Places that have been affected such as closed shopping centers, restaurants, schools, etc.
  • Ways in which daily life changed such as school/work from home, wearing masks, social distancing in public places, etc.
  • Signs and informational postings
  • Programs and/or events that are specific to the pandemic

As we live through this historic time, your contributions to the archive will help future researchers more fully understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our community. For more information, email localhistory@cityofmissionviejo.org. Thank you!
