How Annapolis residents can beat COVID through entertainment

| November 13, 2020, 06:27 AM

We are all aware that the numbers of COVID-19 cases throughout the United States are on the rise. In fact, Maryland has recorded more than 159,000 to date. While all citizens need to be careful in regards to transmission, this is even more important when you consider a more urbanized location such as Annapolis. Although no one likes being told to stay at home or to wear a mask at all times, it is a proven method of dealing with the virus. Still, there are plenty of other activities to keep us occupied in order to ensure that our health is not placed in jeopardy. Let’s take a look at how entertainment can play an important role.

Becoming Actively Engaged in the Online Community

There has never been a better time to become more connected with distant friends and family members than the present. The good news is that the Internet provides us with means to contact nearly anyone within seconds. This is why it is a good idea to plan ahead and schedule conference calls using tools such as Skype or Zoom; especially if holiday travel is currently out of the question.

In the same respect, why not keep entertained with online games? If you are a trivia lover, there are plenty of brain teasers which can be downloaded at absolutely no charge. You might instead wish to play flash-based platforms that will not require any type of download. If you are more interested in casinos and sports betting, you can always learn more by clicking here. The bottom line is that there is no reason to become bored if you are forced to remain home for long periods of time. You have numerous options to choose. You can even ger some old-school board games from Third Eye Games & Hobbies (they even deliver).

Virtual Annapolis Events to Mark on Your Calendar

Let’s also not forget that Annapolis is famous for its music, events and nightlife. Although it is unfortunate that some of these have naturally been put on hold when we consider the circumstances, many are now holding virtual gatherings. Some examples include the Annapolis Shakespeare Company, and recorded sessions by the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra. Many are free and most will not require any type of registration to view. In some ways, they might even be more convenient without the opportunity to attend in person.

Still, there are other unique options if you wish to embrace a more active form of entertainment. Head off to the local park or enjoy a picnic with close family members. While there is no doubt that the current health situation is challenging, the ability to think outside of the box is the best way to remain mentally healthy until the situation.
