While Bathurst has been in lockdown due to the coronavirus, many people have been lucky enough to be with their family during this challenging time.
But for exchange student Loviisa Majuri, she's over 13,300 kilometres away from her family back in Finland.
Ms Majuri has been in Bathurst for nine months, coming to Australia as a part of a Rotary youth exchange.
She's been attending school in Bathurst, while also travelling, playing sport and getting to know many new people and the Australian culture.
And she was meant to return home in three months time, with her return ticket booked for July.
However, because of the coronavirus, this is all in doubt.
As of Sunday morning, there has been 4475 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Finland, with 2000 people making a recovery, however, 177 have unfortunately died.
The first case of the virus to enter Finland was in late January, when a Chinese tourist visited the northern village of Ivalo from Wuhan.
Ms Majuri is from Tampere, a city in the south of Finland and the third biggest city in the country with a population of over 235,000.
She explained the situation is a bit different to Australia, with Finland being in lock-down for much longer.
"No one still knows when the restrictions will ease and the capital Helsinki is closed for any traffic in or out," she said.
"Students are learning online until the summer holidays in June and expected to go back to school after the holidays in August.
"My family and friends are well, safe and enjoying warmer spring weather by exercising in nature."
Ms Majuri said being an exchange student so far away from home can be "challenging".
"We are living in very unusual times, all of us, and being an exchange student on the other side of the world can be challenging," she said.
"A dozen of exchange friends of mine have gone back home and it makes you think of returning as well. My parents, host parents and youth exchange organization Rotary decided that the safest for me is to stay here and I'm happy for that.
"My lovely host families have been helping me to not to be too homesick.
"My return ticket has been booked for July and I just have to wait and see what happens. Until then I'm going to enjoy the rest of the time as well as I can."
