With the coronavirus growing on the media and spreading locally, panic has grown among citizens. This panic is causing people to quarantine themselves, or worry about what will happen if they were to have to quarantine themselves. Just in case people have to quarantine, they are preparing by buying supplies, and the stores are in chaos. People are buying canned foods, disinfecting wipes, and toilet paper. Stores are now having a hard time keeping all of these items in stock. The stores are quickly running out of supplies and can make some pretty ridiculous sights.

This is one of the hardest time periods and events that Americans have faced; however, there are many things that people are able to do in order to keep themselves occupied while being quarantined at home.
Watch Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, etc.
This seems like one of the more obvious things that people can do, but it is one of the easiest. All people have to do is sit back, relax, and watch a new tv series or binge watch movies.
Try new recipes
Obviously people are trying to avoid the grocery store unless they absolutely need to go, but there are very simple recipes that someone can make with a few ingredients lying around their house. One of those recipes being pasta. Pasta only requires anywhere from four to five ingredients depending on the recipe, but the main four are eggs, flour, salt, and olive oil.
Go on walks or runs
Many people are trying to avoid going out of their houses; however, nature is a major stress reliever for most, and getting some fresh air after being cooped up in the house for a long time is exactly what some people need.
Play board games or card games
Most people have board games lying around the house, so those are always a good alternative
instead of watching TV. Even if someone just has a deck of cards, there are hundreds of different games that can be played.
Find a new podcast
Podcasts are a great way to connect with people simply by gaining life advice, education, or hearing about someone else's stories.
