This week we’re switching things up and focusing on moments in the news that caught our eye!
Cleaning in the age of coronavirus With all the information about coronavirus coming at us at full force, it can be hard to know what to do during this admittedly scary time. Cleaning your phone, sanitizing your travel gear, and cleaning high-traffic areas and surfaces in your home are all good small steps and preventative measures we can take around the home.
Spend your weekend (and next week probably) indoors As I write this it is a beautiful, sunny, 70-degree day out and I am staying inside. Why? Social distancing. As we try to slow the spread of the virus so as not to overwhelm our health systems, staying inside as much as possible is key. The Atlantic answers some of your social-distancing questions while The Cut just wants you to know you probably shouldn’t see your friends for a bit. My suggestion? Take up that hobby you’ve been talking about for years, finally start watching The Sopranos, make all the beans, reacquaint yourself with the phone call!
Eating out and ordering in One of the biggest takeaways from social distancing is that even if we may feel fine, it is still possible for us to carry the virus and spread it to others, so we should stay home. For some (ahem, me) that sort of staying in is synonymous with treating oneself to takeout, but is that actually okay? Wired recently dove into the ethics of delivery. Eater put together a guide for dining out safely and responsibly and Kitchn put out this helpful reminder that if those of us in positions of privilege are feeling panicked about food, it’s a truly tough time for the food insecure.
