Show us the last photo you took before the pandemic changed everything: COVID-19 one year later

#BeOn3: We want to see the last picture you snapped before the COVID-19 pandemic changed the world.

CLEVELAND — What were you doing on March 10, 2020? That’s the last “normal” day we all experienced before the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 as a global pandemic – and our lives changed forever.

March 11 was the first day our new reality started settling in as the NBA halted its season and Tom Hanks revealed that he and his wife had tested positive for the coronavirus. Ohio’s stay-at-home order took effect 12 days later on March 23.

But back to our big question… What were you doing on March 10, 2020? Scroll through the camera roll in your phone right now and take a peek back at what life was like for you in that exact moment. Were you celebrating a birthday or enjoying a walk with your dog? Did your kids do something hilarious that day or did you snap a few pics of the awesome dinner you cooked? Just like many people have have been sharing their pre-pandemic photos on TikTok or other social media platforms, we want to see those moments -- and we just might share your pictures on TV!
