40 Productive Things To During This Lockdown

As of this writing, the entire Luzon has been put into an enhanced community quarantine situation due to the alarming COVID-19 developments. 

The enhanced community quarantine means four important things:

  • Home quarantine will be strictly implemented
  • All mass transport by land, sea or air will be suspended
  • Provisions of food and essential health services for the affected will be regulated
  • There will be heightened presence of uniformed men to enforce the quarantine

I actually haven’t gone out of the house in four days. 

What a week, what a month, what a year it has been for all of us.

The enhanced community quarantine will be implemented until April 14, 2020. Till then for everyone's safety, all are encouraged to stay at home and work from home.
