Quarantine Has Led To Some Creative Ways To Still Share Special Moments With The Ones That Mean The Most To Us

by Shasta

As stated by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) Data register on the coronavirus, as of March 25, 2020, there are 471,518 confirmed global cases. From that number alone so far, 21,293 of those people have ultimately succumbed to the virus. Although a staggering 114,051 have since recovered.

As I'm sure you've heard plenty of times already, self isolation is the best way to combat this virus. Practicing social distancing whenever you are or do need to be in public.

And sanitize your hands before and after each outing. Then washing your hands while you sing the abc's or whatever catchy tune you've got rolling around in your mind for at least 20 seconds and rinse with warm water, once you've gotten back home safely.

Unfortunately for all of us, COVID-19 has completely uprooted our lives. Weddings have been cancelled, birthday parties, family reunions, you name it, it's been put on hold. I've even seen some hospitals no longer allowing the spouse inside when a mother goes into labor. Could you imagine?!

But, we wouldn't be human if we didn't attempt to find a loophole, and humanity wins and some people mastered it, all the while still keeping their family completely safe.
