  • Workouts (yoga classes, plank challenges, etc.)
  • Coworking
  • Conferences
  • Classes (art, etc.)
  • Museum strolls
  • Parties/celebrations
  • Games
  • Movies
  • Singing (there was an online choir!)
  • Etc.

Those who are skeptical or apathetic may be able to be distracted to stay inside if they're able to fulfill social needs through remote forums.
