Staying in is the New going out

Back to News & Views

Whilst in isolation or lockdown, it is advisable to keep socially active. This means talking to people other than those in your household or who your work with. In fact, it could prove invaluable in remaining sane and getting through the current situation - it just needs a little more planning!

The best way to keep in touch is by using a platform that most people already have an account for. If you're an Apple fan, then try FaceTime. WhatsApp allows video calls for up to four people using nothing more than your phone.

Skype remains a popular choice and permits up to 50 people at a time, however it has been known to have its flaws. If you are more user of Android devices, Google Hangouts is a simple choice

Compared to Skype, Zoom is new to a lot of people and has seen an explosion of user numbers since the Coronavirus outbreak. It offers free group calls for up to 40 minutes.

Regardless of the platform chosen, a certain amount of lagging audio, frozen screens and the like is inevitable, but take the time to adjust to this way of socialising and keep in touch with your friends, your familiy, your neighbours and perhaps your colleagues too.

Remember, stay sane, stay safe and stay home.
