Things to do during Isolation!


Entertainment and “Social”:

  • Download apps like TikTok to watch funny videos

  • Reading!

  • Get out all those books you’ve bought but never read!

    • If you already have a library card, you have instant access to all of the online resources at the public library including ebooks, audiobooks, movies, music, magazines, children’s materials, genealogy resources, and educational materials.

    • If you don’t have a card, you can get a temporary card online based on the parish you live in: Orleans Parish + Jefferson Parish

  • Use Zoom, Google Hangouts, or Facetime to video chat with family and friends: you can even play games and watch movies “together” using these services

  • Try cooking and baking new recipes for your family or roommates

Coping and Mental Health Services:

Check with your insurance company before paying for any of the above therapy services. Many companies are changing coverage plans by the day given the current pandemic, which for most companies this translates into offering more mental health services and expanding coverage for telehealth in general – utilize it.
