The aim of this study is to provide an insight on the experience on issues related to the public health pandemic Covid-19 and individuals’ ways of coping. A Qualitative method was implemented, and a purposeful sampling was used to acquire depth and richness on the study inquiries. 25 individuals participated in this study including males and females. Common themes emerged from data including feelings of anxiety and fear, feeling of loneliness and the fear of missing out. Another theme repeated by participants involved was thinking of others as a part of the theme of feelings of collective responsibility. Avoidance coping was found also to be more communal among participants through keeping their minds occupied by engaging in physical and mental practices. Participants also identified religion as a method to cope. Appreciation and blessings within the crisis were reflected in participants' theme of thriving. Implication was suggested based on research findings.
