Like @complicated said it does matter, but due to the pandemic, colleges are more understanding. You can't do much to change your grade now, but do your very best junior year to show improvement and balance out your GPA. I think colleges value grade improvement more than just having good grades. You got this!!

yes, it is definitely important. It will be counted in every school. However, some colleges actually give you a box where you can explain why you had a downfall in grades. This is not the end of your world. Work harder next year and make up for it by showing drastic improvement in your Junior Year. Wish you the best.
