Don't be like these kids who are totally bummed their spring break in Miami is lame. Keep practicing recommended best practices from the CDC and WHO and flatten the curve. And here are three important things you should know: 1. Self isolation getting to you? There are ways to still be social with people, such as Netflix Party, a new Chrome extension that allows you to watch Netflix with your friends. "The free plug-in allows you to synchronize your viewing activity with any number of other accounts—when one person pauses the program, for example, it automatically freezes on everyone else’s screen, too. There’s even a message bar along the right side of your screen, so you can keep up a steady stream of commentary about whatever you decide to watch." Mental Floss 2. Young Americans are not bulletproof. In a study conducted by the CDC, Americans aged 20 to 44 are ending up in the hospital at the same rate as older age groups. "'Lots of young people are getting hospitalized, a lot more than we’re messaging, and, yes, maybe you don’t die, but living with a damaged lung or damaged organ is not a good outcome,' said Prabhjot Singh, a physician and health systems expert at Mount Sinai Health System and the Icahn School of Medicine."

Quarantine Thread If anyone has any ideas for virtual events, please send them to Amanda's through Slack (@amanda) or email (email@example.com)! Ideas can include, Group exercise, a happy hour, virtual movie watching...What do you want to do during this time as a team?! Mind Edit We all have seen articles about how best to WFH, but wanted to share a few additional ideas to consider when going on a pause or break. - Make sure to check in with the people you care about, whether that be family, friends, a more distant friend, a fitness instructor, or even your doctor! I think we all can use that positive reminder we are all here for each other during this time. - Exercise if you can! There are great suggestions in the #rollcall Slack channel so definitely check those out. Studios are also offering free trials for virtual classes and even Peloton has a 90-day trial app offer going! Exercise is great to keep you brain energized and helps with stress!
