Fun And Entertainment For The Masses While Under Quarantine

So far, the year 2020 has been a doozy. The whole of humanity is on edge after the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the virus in humans, is of huge concern. Everywhere you turn there are as many opinions about the virus as there are human beings on the Earth. It has become clear that, in the absence of a vaccine or treatment, the practice of quarantine and social distancing are the most effective means of slowing down the spread of the disease. Humans, however, are social by nature. Being stuck indoors, separated from our various social groups, can place a huge strain on our sanity. It does not have to be all doom and gloom though. It is up to us to use our good old human ingenuity to produce our own fun and entertainment for the masses while under quarantine.

Corona What?

Primarily, we need to learn about the basic facts about what the novel coronavirus and COVID-19, the respiratory disease in humans caused by the virus, are. It is important to note that coronaviruses are not new and there have been on the Earth for an exceptionally long time. While most do not affect humans at all, the ones that do can bring with them devastating consequences. The coronaviruses that infect humans have been around long enough for most to have developed natural immunities to them.

The description of “novel” for this strain of coronavirus is a signifier that this strain of the virus was one that previously only infected other species. It has just recently undergone a mutation that allowed for the infection of humans. Because this virus’s ability to infect humans is so new, that means humanity has no immunity to it. Scientists are studying this new coronavirus as the crisis continues to develop. It is safe to say that the mutation that allowed for the infection of humans was lucky enough (for the virus at least) to make it easily transmissible. That means that we need to be both aware of what the virus is and how it spreads.

A Non-Exhaustive Corona FAQ

  • How is novel coronavirus spread? Medical researchers around the world are continuing to study the virus and its spread. The virus causing COVID-19 spreads by droplets formed when infected individuals cough and/or sneeze.
  • How long does it take to develop COVID-19 symptoms? Viral infections take time to show an effect. Research to date shows the average time it takes for an individual to show symptoms, or the incubation period, is about fourteen (14) days.
  • What are the symptoms of COVID-19? General symptoms that have been presenting for a potential COVID-19 infection include fever, unusual tiredness, and a dry cough, a sore throat, aches and pains, and a shortness of breath.
  • What should I do if I think I may be infected? If you have non-life-threatening symptoms you should call your primary healthcare provider or urgent care clinic to discuss your symptoms BEFORE you go in. This will allow both you and your provider to navigate any special procedures put in place to help stop the spread of the disease. If you find yourself in a life-threatening situation, please dial 9-1-1 (in the United States).
  • Where can I go for more information? With all the misinformation out there, it is best to be discerning about what information you can trust. The United States Centers For Disease Control (CDC) has put together an informative fact sheet and Harvard University has created a great coronavirus resource center to help people keep themselves informed about what is going on.

Distancing, It’s The New Social

Lately, the news has been all about the coronavirus and the spread of COVID-19. If you have been paying attention, then you have also heard the advice to employ social distancing. But what exactly is social distancing and how does it help? Social distancing is a non-pharmaceutical way to prevent the spread of a highly transmissible disease. It involves individuals isolating themselves and thus eliminating a path the virus can use to keep propagating. Remember, a virus cannot live without a host it can infect. If we keep that virus from moving from an infected person to an otherwise healthy individual, then that virus cannot continue to spread.

This virus is new to humanity which means we have little to no immunity to it. Protecting yourself from infection is currently the best and only way to keep things under control. Stopping the spread of COVID-19 not only helps protect you, but it helps protect those in your community who have a heightened susceptibility to diseases. These groups include the elderly, infants, and those suffering from an affliction that leaves them immunocompromised. While you may feel strong and healthy, there is still the chance that you are infected and are asymptomatic, or not showing any symptoms. This means that you can very easily infect a member of the high-risk groups without knowing. Limiting the spread by protecting those at a greater risk of becoming infected will limit the number of patients putting a strain on our health systems.

Non-Exhaustive Social Distancing Tips

  • Avoid physical contact: The coronavirus spreads through droplets from coughing and sneezing. Keeping a distance of at least six (6) feet, two (2) meters, while out in public and avoiding activities like hugging, handshakes, and kissing will help to keep you from picking up the virus from someone’s clothing or hands.
  • Wash your hands frequently: Make sure you wash your hands frequently. Soap is extremely effective at decontaminating your hands from the coronavirus so make sure you use it!
  • Avoid hospitals, nursing homes, or people sick at home: These places are where the people who are most vulnerable to infection are. Why put your grandparents or your sick friend at further risk?
  • Stay at home: If your job allows you to work from home then do it! This protects your co-workers and the most vulnerable among us. It also helps minimize the chance you become sick. If you can’t work from home, minimize your contact at work and head straight there and home.
  • Self-quarantine: If you suspect you have become infected, call your doctor to discuss what you should do. In the meantime, quarantine yourself from contact with everyone and keep interactions with those you live with to an absolute minimum.
  • Follow the directions of officials: They are issuing orders for a reason. They have advice from the experts with the latest knowledge of the outbreak. If they have closed places or issued stay at home orders, it is for a valid and justifiable reason.

Quarantine Apparel

You are practicing proper social distancing and have quarantined yourself away from the normal world. You don’t have to spend the entirety of it in the bottom of a dazed and confused Netflix hole! You still must go out and get essential supplies from time to time. You may even be one of those lucky (or unfortunate depending on your outlook) employees deemed essential. Communicate from a distance with a bit of fashion and show the world that, though it may be a tough time, you are still going to make the best of it.
