Some people stay connected with friends and loved ones, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. But for many others, staying socially connected is more challenging during times of quarantining and social distancing.

While the situation for some will improve as the Coronavirus recedes, others have felt loneliness long before the pandemic began.

With the resources and tips offered here, you or your loved one can find social connection, even when alone.

Be part of a community, and be #FarFromAlone.
