Keep your distance… physically, not socially 

Physical distancing and isolating yourself can get pretty boring, but it is super important right now. We've got some great ideas to stay social, whilst protecting your health.

Following the latest government advice, physical distancing is of the utmost importance as we fight COVID-19 globally. But this does not mean that we should shut ourselves off from the outside world. In 2020, we have a whole range of digital tools to keep us connected, healthy, positive and stimulated. Explore these fun, unique and (mostly) FREE  ways of staying busy during these times.
