Plan Events During Social Distancing 

 

In order to help bring about more social interactions, it may be of interest to plan events to bring your community together. This may include:

  • A Movie Night. Schedule a night to watch a movie “together”! Have a space to chat, and encourage community members to order takeout or delivery from local restaurants. 

  • Starting a weekly book club. Use Zoom or another online/phone platform to bring community members together.
