COVID-19 brings us closer together

As the third quarter of 2020 comes to a close, the world is experiencing a pandemic, which has upended the world as we know it.

While the Coronavirus spreads at break neck speed, oddly, it has given all of us time to slowdown and pause while on quarantine.

For many, this pause (quarantine) has quickly evolved into quality time for self-care, presence with family, focused productivity time if able to work remotely, and catching up with friends.

Ironically, self-distancing has brought our global community closer and created more connectivity in this moment.

Whether it’s families having meals together with technology, happy hour google hangouts, virtual game night, or DJ D-Nice creating “Club Quarantine” with an epic live display of music that lifted everyone brought some of the biggest names in entertainment, sports, politics, our first responders, and the Instagram community at large, we are discovering new ways to get through these uncertain times, together.

Let’s remember to be safe and not selfish – potentially impacting others whose immune systems will not survive exposure to this virus.
