30 things to do during Coronavirus to make self isolation a little more fun


Welcome to 2020 guys, it’s only March and we’re all locked up in our homes to help stop the spread of the infamous Coronavirus. Rather than sitting on the couch and staring into space, we might as well make the most of our time spent at home to do things we’ve been meaning to do for ages, but never have time for. And to make self isolation more fun, of course. We’ve also got a few special mentions in here to local SA businesses coming up with fun and innovative ideas to survive the crisis that we think are definitely worth supporting.
