The Ultimate Guide to Self-Quarantining

Across the globe, we’ve all been asked to do our part to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Social distancing, self-quarantining, and self-isolation are just a few of the terms floating around to remind us to stay inside.

It’s still pretty uncertain when our lives will return ‘back to normal,’ and until that day comes, we have to hunker down, stay home, and patiently wait for this quarantine to be over.

So to help make all this time spent at home a little easier, we’ve assembled the ultimate guide to self-quarantining. It contains ideas to keep you inspired, informed, productive, creative, and most importantly, not bored.
