This isolation thing could go on for months it seems. New York Governor Cuomo just extended New York’s self-quarantine to to May 15.
Enter a new trend in this brave new world:
It’s a way for to escape the isolation that comes with the stay-at-home orders mandated across the country. Some are leaving their homes and moving in with friends instead.
This allows people to still follow orders and it’s provided in-person, human interaction that is lacking during physical distancing.
C. Vaile Wright, a psychologist and director of clinical research and quality at the American Psychological Association, told CNN.
“In some ways this is a huge social experiment about how do we think about our relationships.
I think one of the interesting aspects of this pandemic is the way which we are faced with all the things we took for granted. All these really minor interactions that you never thought about before are now gone. And so we do need to replace them with something.”
This is an example of how resilient people and communities can be. This sense of really thinking about how can we in some ways unconventionally address this challenge together.
You teaming up with those that you care about and approaching it (social distancing) together, and supporting each other, is a positive story that could come out of great adversity.”
Former “Bachelorette Hannah Brown formed a group joining former contestant Tyler Cameron and his friends at his Jupiter, Florida, home for about a month. Brown, Cameron and their group — which includes Cameron’s brother — created a popular TikTok account called The Quarantine Crew.
But others who are happy to stay at home alone have created their own fantasy quarantine groups, including ones with celebs and RuPaul’s Drag Race stars.
So, which house # are you?
