Whether you're social distancing or self-quarantining, it's a bummer to stay inside for so long. Here's seven fun activities you can do without fear. Wochit
As many Arizonans take precautions such as social distancing and self-isolating during the new coronavirus pandemic, weddings, birthday parties and other celebrations have been put on pause.
For those looking to connect with loved ones while self-quarantining or keeping their distance from those outside their households, some local businesses are making it easy to send a gift to let someone know you're thinking of them.
As many local stores and small businesses fight to stay alive as sales go down, they're pivoting to online sales while fewer people are out shopping. Some have closed their brick-and-mortar stores for the time being.
