We hope you’re all healthy, and we trust you’re washing your hands like crazy — here are some more routines to mix it up! If you’re singin’ the COVID-19 Blues, this article on protecting your mental health may help. Also: We’ve heard all kinds of rumors, from silly to disgusting to downright racist (we’re looking at you, Bigot-in-Chief). It’s more essential than ever not to repost, retweet, or repeat random stuff. Do your research: misinformation can literally be deadly. And we’ve had serious issues with their social & political coverage, but you can get free coverage & daily updates on the coronavirus outbreak from the Washington Post and NY Times. Stay informed; stay safe; stay active!

We’re thrilled to have Indivisible co-founders Leah Greenberg and Ezra Levin join us LIVE to talk about their book We Are Indivisible (available digitally, of course) and answer all questions Indivisible. And more: Richard “Doc” Gooding, Arizona Field Director for Field Team 6, with the latest AZ elections news. Plus, you’ll hear how you can take action from the comfort & safety of your own home.

And Now For Something Completely Different
… from our usual snarky fun end-of-newsletter column. Need some soothing in these crazy times? Try #SongsofComfort on YouTube. Want company? If your neighborhood has an email list or online group, invite them to a Zoom happy hour — it’s a lot of fun (and no need to clean your house!). Going a little stir crazy? Swim with the fishies (as it were) at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, then move on to the museums in Paris, no nasty air travel required! Here’s more virtual tours. Or how about REALLY getting out? Most East Bay parks & trails are open — check for updates here and go get some fresh air! You can take more action when you get back. We’ll be here.
