Illinois entered Phase 4 of J.B. Pritzker’s plan to reopen the state a few weeks ago, but many people are, and should be, still practicing social distancing with friends and family. Everyone misses larger gatherings such as grandkids’ weddings, senior community events and trips to museums and art galleries. However, it’s a good idea for the foreseeable future to err on the side of caution when you can.

There are plenty of ways to stay connected during social distancing by going virtual. Here are some of our favorite ways to adjust to the “new normal”:

Stay connected during social distancing

Online communication skyrocketed when COVID-19 swept across the world. Nothing beats face-to-face interaction, but virtual calls allow family and friends to join each other for casual catch-ups, high school reunions, family celebrations and much more. If you haven’t learned how to virtually connect with others through video, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

There are countless other apps and platforms to communicate with friends and family, but these are great options due to their popularity and user-friendliness.

Play games during social distancing

We’re all looking for ways to pass the time. If you can’t play Bingo, cards or board games in person, why not take them online? Games keep your mind sharp and can lead to lots of laughs. Here are some great options to get started:

Virtual games are a great way to have a friendly competition with your loved ones. There are so many more out there, so if none of these are up your alley, you can find a larger list here.

Explore during social distancing

The world is full of places to discover and things to learn. In 2020, you don’t even have to leave your couch to experience them! Check out some of these virtual experiences that you can share with friends and family while social distancing.

No matter your interests, people are finding ways to give you unforgettable virtual experiences to share with family and friends. Use these resources to learn something new, explore somewhere you’ve always wanted to go or simply catch up with an old friend. The virtual world is your oyster.
