  • The coronavirus outbreak is ravaging various regions of the United States and things could get even worse now that some states are beginning to reopen nonessential businesses too soon.
  • As a result, citizens are presented with a challenge: can we continue to be responsible and stay in quarantine for at least another month to minimize the inevitable second wave of infections despite the reopenings?
  • People who care about their friends and neighbors will answer “yes” to the question above, and they’ll need some nifty new gear to keep themselves occupied in isolation.

We have some good news: some experts believe that the novel coronavirus outbreak in the United States will finally start getting better in the weeks to come. That’s the first ray of sunshine we’ve seen in a very long time, but it’s important that we don’t get ahead of ourselves. Before you get too excited about the possibility that things are starting to improve, it’s important to keep reminding yourself that it doesn’t mean things will soon go back to normal. They won’t. Unless we all continue to quarantine ourselves and only go out when we absolutely need to, there will be a horrific second wave of infections that will be devastating to our healthcare system and to our morale.

With all that in mind, there’s one thing you need to keep reminding yourself… this won’t last forever. It’s difficult since staying in isolation is in such stark contrast with the way we normally live our lives, but you have to focus on the big picture. Staying in quarantine will save lives. It will also help slow and ultimately stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, which is crucial since we all know that there’s no vaccine coming for at least 12 to 18 months. Even then, there’s no telling how much the virus will have mutated by that time, so we don’t know how effective a vaccine will be.

Now that you know you need to continue to stay home as much as possible for at least the next month or two, here are some key items that will help pass the time in self-quarantine.

A tablet

After weeks of spending tons of time together, you’re not always going to want to watch TV with the rest of your family. Also, you’re going to get tired of gaming and trying to read the news on your tiny smartphone screen. You’ll definitely want a great tablet, and the best option out there right now is Apple’s newest 10.2-inch iPad, which starts at just $279.99 instead of $329 right now at Amazon. If you’re looking to spend even less, Amazon’s Fire 7 Tablet, Fire HD 8 Tablet, and high-end Fire HD 10 are all on sale right now starting at just $39.99.

New Apple iPad (10.2-Inch, Wi-Fi, 32GB) – Gold (Latest Model): $279.99

Fire 7 Tablet (7″ display, 16 GB) – Black: $39.99

Spending quality time with your family is obviously important, but so is spending some time alone. A good pair of headphones is a must-have to help drown out the world around you, and Amazon has some great options that are still shipping despite the company’s new policy on delaying deliveries of nonessential items. AirPods Pro are in stock and shipping immediately, and they also happen to be on sale at the lowest price ever. You can also save a bunch of money on Apple’s AirPods 2 both with and without the wireless charging case.

As for a great pair of over-ear headphones with active noise cancellation, we’ve got two terrific options for you. The class-leading Bose 700 wireless noise cancelling headphones that blow everyone’s minds are discounted right now, and that’s pretty shocking since they almost never go on sale. If you want more affordable cans that still sound great, the TaoTronics SoundSurge 60 ANC headphones have fantastic reviews and they’re on sale for $49.99.

An eBook reader

Tablets are great for reading the news and for reading books, but if you’re a big-time reader you’re definitely going to want a dedicated device that’s easier on the eyes. Needless to say, it doesn’t get any better than Amazon’s all-new Kindle and waterproof Kindle Paperwhite and you can save 20% if you buy two of either model or one of each.

Kindle Paperwhite – Now Waterproof with 2x the Storage – Includes Special Offers: $94.99

Board games

Even about stuff that lets you have fun on your own… what about spending some quality time with members of your family? You should definitely pick up some fun new board games — and Amazon knows how popular and important board games are, so they’re shipping out right away.
