Things to do during coronavirus lockdowns
What do you do when contact with other people is banned in so many ways? There are social things you can do. This site gives you plenty of things to do. Most of our ideas can be used worldwide but we're based in Melbourne, Australia. (And, yes, we know we're not actually in 'lockdown'.)
Right now, we need to keep things going as best we can. We need to support businesses and jobs, and live as normally as we can within the rules.
First off, we recommend everyone install Zoom, HouseParty and/or Skype. Zoom is designed for video meetings. Up to 100 people can join a pro Zoom session. It is powerful. HouseParty is similar but doesn't have the limits of free Zoom.
Then check out the links at the bottom for things to do, and add your ideas too...

I think we're all getting to know Zoom and Houseparty well. Thank goodness they exist.

I did an online murder mystery with friends the other day. It was really good fun. Definitely recommend.
