Send an email to keep in touch.

Draft a longer message to hold a longer, virtual conversation with your quarantined family members. If you don’t feel like picking up the phone, you can use email as a replacement for longer conversations. To reply more efficiently, consider downloading an email app to your phone.
For instance, you can draft something like: “Hey Uncle Steve! I hope you’ve been doing well. I’ve been getting some cabin fever at home, but I’m doing my best to keep busy.”
