Many are at home more these days as people throughout the United States are being encouraged to stay home and help decrease the spread of the coronavirus.

The Clanton Advertiser asked our Facebook followers what was the most creative way they had dealt with social distancing during this COVID-19 pandemic.

“As an extrovert, I need other people. Last night, I hit the road with my megaphone and oldest daughter. We visited friends and family and serenaded them. We kept our distances but was able to bring smiles to their faces. And it did our hearts good,” Nicole Brock said.

Bridget Gonzalez also found a way to bring cheer to others while keeping a distance.

“We did a drive by birthday party for a friend’s son yesterday,” Gonzalez said.

Samantha Wyatt took advantage of technology available to connect with friends she could not go see.

“(I) Participated in a Facebook phone call with family from Clanton, Prattville, Cleveland (TN) and Wisconsin,” Wyatt said.

Nancy Maners said she was spending time doing “lots and lots of Bible Study.”

Matthew Varden said he had spent time in his swimming pool and playing the games Uno Attack, bingo, and Yahtzee.

While Sylviane Coleman said she was “Watching Gunsmoke, bonanza, cleaning.”
