The City of Nanaimo has a few ideas for families that are starting to get cabin fever during COVID-19 self-isolation.
The city’s parks and rec department released ‘April Wellness Bingo’ yesterday, encouraging residents to try to fill out a bingo card full of activities that can be done while social distancing.
Some examples of parks and rec’s suggestions include online pilates, photography, taking a dog for a run, starting a podcast, watching “the entire Star Wars series,” going for a bike ride, or calling someone you haven’t spoken to in awhile.
Those who complete two rows on the bingo card can send their name and contact information to the parks and rec department to be entered to win a prize.
The city press release said recreation coordinators “understand the importance of staying connected while staying home” and are trying to come up with fun online campaigns to promote the social and emotional well-being of residents.
“The Instagram platform is enabling the parks, recreation and culture team to connect and continue promoting health and wellness while trying to flatten the curve,” said Lynn Wark, director of parks, rec and culture, in the release.
