BEST PRACTICAL TIPS FOR SELF-ISOLATION

This is an article by the NZ Ministry of Health.

But the GENERAL info is outstanding and applies in all of our cases.

If you need to self-isolate, this is an EXCELLENT resource.

Stephen Amell announced on his IG the he will have a chat at 11:00 am PT daily beginning today on his IG page. Since his new show for STARZ has suspended production. He’s also been promoting Code 8 the crowdfunded feature film released last year, his nocking point vintage wine club, plus being at home with his kids.
Supposedly about the best fan base experience throughout his run as Arrow.

I'd join in whenever it gets started. I started rewatching TAR from season 1 around Christmas time. I'm about done with season 8 (the family edition). I've done some screengrabs of video errors, mostly reversed images. One was in the intro clips of the teams and appeared in every episode that season! At some point I'll get the ambition together to post them.

Another idea that may be possible. Some message boards have chat rooms available to them. Perhaps a scheduled, moderated chat may be of interest.

If you have Amazon Prime, they have lots of old programs and movies that you can watch for free. I've been watching early TAR seasons and a few old game shows, but I'll likely start looking at what else is there. Outlander sounds interesting. I may check it out.

The books are AMAZING. But the show is OUTSTANDING as well.  Next to TAR...my favorite!

We probably need a thread for this.
But various personalities and venues are conducting online chats, concerts online either from home or empty arenas. Many are being made available afterwards for later viewing.
First one is Stephen Amell, Oliver Queen on Arrow, His General plan is to host a chat.with a guest daily at 11AM PDT/2 PM EDT. (During the years Arrow was being produced, Stephen had frequent updates on his YouTube channel from his backlot trailer and grew a fan base in the millions. He's home in LA with production of his STARZ series suspended. He’s had his cousin Robbie Amell on and his fellow Arrow castmate Kat MaNamara, who played Mia Smoak on the last two seasons.
Rosie O’Donnell hosted a one time only revival of her talk show on Friday as a fundraiser for the Actor’s Fund, which provides support for those employed in all the various crafts, and not just actors in the entertainment field. The show is posted at broadway.com. Everyone who participated did so remotely. So that was a technological marvel. There were a lot of well known performers, most with a Broadway connection, but I’ll mention one — Darren Criss who does television, film, stage, and concerts, and who has won a few Emmys.
I’ll add more as I find or remember them. But feel free to add some others.
