Before Covid-19 was declared a pandemic, ATMI producer Ryan Danigole’s father got a job out of state and the whole family was set to move to Albany, New York. Now that we are in the midst of a pandemic, the Danigole family is still planning to move this summer.
Ryan sat down with his parents to talk about the prospect of moving across the country during a pandemic, anxieties about being so close to the epicenter of cases in the U.S., and their hopes for the future.
