When the word “coronavirus” first started appearing with frequency in national headlines around this time last year, would you ever have imagined that you’d be largely locked inside a year later as a pandemic continued to grip the U.S. for months on end? We honestly can’t remember how we thought this was all going to shake out, but after watching Contagion (2011), yeah, we guess this makes sense. Well, the good thing is that the incompetent Donald Trump is officially out of the White House, the COVID-19 vaccines are starting to be administered, and, well, that’s reason enough for celebration. The bad news is that most of us won’t be able to get vaccinated for months, so it’s looking like another Michigan winter without many of the usual things that help to make it bearable. That doesn’t mean there’s absolutely nothing to do. Here’s a roundup of some socially distant ways to kick it while we wait for our vaccines.
