As much as it might become lonely, those in self-isolation shouldn’t entertain any visitors. Stay in contact with friends and family using the telephone or social media instead.
Boredom is a big factor in self-quarantine but it can be an opportunity to do arts and crafts, read or catch up on some television series.
Creative ways to stay entertained while in lockdown have been popping up on social media across the world and locally.
Here are some virtual events that are happening around our local area:
- The Black Sorrows live stream their gig from St Kilda’s Memo Music Hall – Sunday 26 April, 7:30pm
- “Australia at home” run a series of Lunchtime briefings (to keep the brain active)
- Local Laughs via the Local Taphouse in Balaclava: Monday April 20 see Andrew McClelland, Michael Williams, Ryan Coffey and more …
- Virtual Cinémathèque, because you can’t visit the Capitol Theatre in town, but you can watch arthouse films in your home
