Ways to Help Others During Quarantine

By Madi Blackburn, Staff Writer

Being isolated due to Covid-19 is a hard time for everyone. Taking care of yourself during a pandemic like this is important, but it is just as important to help those around you.

Physically distance, do not social distance. “Social distancing” is not the best term. Rather, we should physically distance. Keeping in contact with others over the phone is perhaps even more important while in quarantine than before. Isolation can easily put people into states of depression, and it is important to check on family and friends when able. Take this time to write a letter or make a card for someone you know, which is more personal than just a text. It is important to stay aware of your mental health during a time like this, and just calling or texting someone at least a few days a week can help with the loneliness that most people are facing.
