12+ People Taking Coronavirus Seriously, But Not Too Seriously

Amy Pilkington 20 Mar 2020

Is the cabin fever setting in for you yet? I'm still doing okay, but I'm already a homebody. Give me a week and even I'll be itching for some in-person conversation.

Social distancing and self isolation are really hard, but also really important. We should all be doing what we can to protect our families and the community as a whole.

But that doesn't mean we can't make the most out of these stressful times.

Information about the coronavirus pandemic is rapidly changing and Diply is committed to providing the most recent data as it becomes available. Some of the information in this story may have changed since publication, and we encourage readers to use online resources from CDC and WHO to stay up to date on the latest information surrounding COVID-19.

1. Dance party!

You may never speak to your neighbors on a regular day, but how about a street-wide dance party to get some sun and interaction from a safe distance?

2. This casino is doing it right.

When your slogan is an invitation, but you're closed due to a pandemic, you need to get real with your signage.

3. You can't choose your family, but you can choose your photos.

Why look at the smiling faces of the same kids you're stuck homeschooling in a tiny house when you can see your favorite celebrities instead?

4. No concerts? No problem.

Now I'm craving gummy bears and they definitely should have been on my list of essential supplies.

5. Meanwhile in Canada...

If you're not a sports fan, you may not recognize what this Canadian news outlet is using to extend the length of their microphones.

It's a hockey stick.

6. "Throwback Thursday."

Admit it, you giggled.

Seriously, though, look at all that beautiful toilet paper.

7. I don't think that's how it works.

It would be nice if an empty toilet paper roll could be watered and sprout a replacement, but alas!

8. Puppies are better than card games anyway!

I'm sure he's still got plenty of growing to do, but Moose is a hilarious name for such a little pupper.

9. Social distancing happy hour!

While I'm stocked up on most essentials, I am kind of kicking myself for not making an extra stop at the liquor store.

10. Screw the dress code.

Admittedly, it's going to take a lot of willpower to get me to ever wear a bra again when life goes back to normal.

11. Too soon?

I foresee a grandmother decades from now showing off her crochet coronavirus to her grandkids as she tells them about the 2020 pandemic.

12. "Put my cat in the quarantine after she sneezed."

The cat looks very, very confused.

Beautiful shower, though.

13. A new respect for teachers.

How do they handle so many kids on a daily basis when we can barely manage our own for a half-hour of math lessons?

Load Comments

14. Think of how clean your house will be!

Yeah, no. I'm the same way. Cleaning will be an absolute last resort.

15. Self-isolation menu planning.

I'm sure this person won't run out of food that quickly, but it certainly gets the point across.

16. Time to update those Tinder profiles in the age of social distancing.

Every single one of these is funnier than the last.

Load Comments

17. Can't be too sure.

Reddit | itsxiin

Standing and pointing a thermometer at people seems like an easy job, but it's probably super stressful right now.

This cat seems unamused, though.

Load Comments

18. Honestly, same.

Reddit | hoosiernamechecksout

But swap "pants" for "bra". Technically, pjs are pants. They aren't work pants, but they are pants.

The bra is gathering dust, though.

19. This is the sweetest.

A birthday visit would be dangerous for this lady, but people made sure she still got a sing-along.

Load Comments

20. Nothing to see here. Just a friendly dinosaur.

You might think that this works fine for social distancing, but have you ever seen a T-rex wash its hands? Can it even reach the faucet?!
