  1. Catch up on This is Reno’s podcast for the latest on Reno’s sweep of homeless camps and Sheriff Balaam’s tips for handwashing. https://thisisreno.com/2020/03/coronavirus-reno-massive-sweep-of-homeless-camps/
  2. Hit your annual reading goal, learn a language, or start your studies to become the epidemiologist you pretend to be on Facebook. All you need is your Washoe County Library card to access e-books, audiobooks, magazines, Lynda courses and more in the all-online digital library. https://www.washoecountylibrary.us/downloads/
  3. Support local businesses. Coffee n’ Comics is offering curbside pickup and with their #LocalDollars campaign will give you a dollar back on each purchase you can use to support other local businesses that may be struggling as society slows to a crawl. https://thisisreno.com/2019/10/review-beans-bombs-and-broomsticks-at-coffee-n-comics/
  4. Connect with UNR’s Cooperative Extension online for a host of nutrition and physical fitness activities to keep your kids busy during their spring break. Scroll down to “Informational Publications” for tools at https://extension.unr.edu/publications.aspx
  5. Help Stuff a Bus for Seniors by buying a few extra supplies they may need but can’t access due to health concerns. Call Washoe County Senior Services for details: 775-328-2575.
  6. Cozy up to YouTube to learn a craft or skill, hone your cooking skills, or keep in shape with free yoga and fitness videos. Or keep watching cat videos; those never get old.
  7. Get your shopping delivered. Now’s a great time to check out home delivery for groceries. Or for cannabis, at https://shop.blackbirdgo.com/.
  8. CANCELED, moving to May: And if you get stir crazy and decide to venture into the world, check out A Night Out in Reno to support local nonprofits. https://thisisreno.com/2020/03/a-night-out-in-reno-benefits-nonprofits-sponsored/
