With the coronavirus epidemic, we are confined to our homes mostly and unable to obtain support from other human beings in the usual ways. We depend on one another more than we may realize for touch, comfort, a sense of belonging, and socialization. With all the social distancing and hysteria in the news and our communities, we need more than ever to find ways to connect safely with other human beings."
