COVID-19 is taking over the United States, as well as a lot of other countries. According to Channel3000 News, Wisconsin has reached 426 positive cases since March 23, 2020. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has announced that it had tested 416 positive cases, 7,050 negative cases, and 5 deaths. According to the WDHS, there has been 61 positive cases alone in Dane County.

On March 25th, Governor Tony Evers announced the “Stay At Home” order, asking everyone to stay at home and not to go out unless it is absolutely necessary. This order will go on until May 26th, 2020.

Now that we have a quarantine in place, here are some ways to stay busy at home:

  1. Complete a puzzle.
  2. Binge new shows/movies.
