3) Go out to eat without going out to eat
WPTV viewer, Angelica Gregor, daughter Imani was asking for two weeks to leave the house and go out to eat. The Gregors are practicing quarantining during the coronavirus pandemic. So Angelica transformed their backyard into an Italian restaurant as her husband cooked spaghetti and then they got dressed up to go "out to eat."

4) Adopt or foster a pet
Many of the local animal shelters are overrun with animals and are having staffing issues. Because you are probably spending a lot of time at home, it's a great time to adopt and train a new puppy. Many shelters also need your help by fostering a pet. By temporarily taking a pet, you are reducing the workload at the shelters during this strenuous time. Plus, it give you a companion while you are isolating. Shelters like Fury Friends have adoption and fostering programs.
