Going into a self-quarantine can have many complex issues and complications beyond having enough food and supplies for two weeks. In terms of entertainment, it also probably means you’re in for a lot of boredom, a lot of Netflix, and a lot of browsing the internet.
But there is a way to get a little culture and education while you’re confined to your home. According to Fast Company, Google Arts & Culture teamed up with over 500 museums and galleries around the world to bring anyone and everyone virtual tours and online exhibits of some of the most famous museums around the world..
The next few weeks are going to be a challenge. It’s going to be hard on kids being away from school. It’s going to be a challenge and huge change for working parents, and even the caregivers home with these little ones during the day – unsure what’s safe to participate in during the break.
Beginning next week, our studio will be going live daily with free art & craft tutorials to create at home with your kids! We’ll have shopping lists (with links to the supplies you can order from Amazon) to have on-hand to complete the projects with us! We hope this helps the parents, grandparents, nannies, and in home providers to still have something fun to do with these little guys, and something exciting to look forward to during a time that can be quite overwhelming for kids. Art is therapy, friends! And if there was ever a time for it, it’s now!

Eat at Local Restaurants
Coronavirus is not known to be transmitted through food, but hard surfaces – utensils, menus, salt and pepper shakers, condiments, door handles, tables – can be contaminated by droplets. So, throughout your meal, each time you touch something –the menu while ordering or the ketchup bottle when loading up your burger – avoid touching your face or eating until you wash your hands or rub them with hand sanitizer. Taking precautions, you can continue to dine out with fairly minimal risk, say health departments officials.
But that recommendation does not apply to people in high-risk groups who are being advised by the CDC to avoid crowds. Older people and those with underlying conditions in areas where the virus is spreading should take steps to keep their distance from others and stay home as much as possible.
Is delivery less risky than dining out?
The short answer is yes. The CDC is advising people at high risk in outbreak areas to have food brought to the house by family members, friends or delivery services.
A number of services including Grub Hub and DoorDash are letting customers request that deliveries be left on the doorstep to limit exposure even more. “The restaurant industry is really prepared for this. Because of influenza, norovirus, hepatitis A and other viruses, they spend a lot of time thinking about this in the restaurant industry,” Chapman says. “A lot of thought has been put into regulations and operating procedures,” says Larry Lynch, senior vice president of certification and operations for the National Restaurant Association.
As more and more people choose to stay at home (with their money) during the coronavirus outbreak, supporting some of the community’s most vulnerable small businesses will allow them to remain open and keep their employees working.
