White-collar workers are learning how to do their jobs from home, if they didn't know already. Drs and patients are learning to use telemedicine. People who didn't like the phone or texting or FaceTime are getting acclimated. It's harder for some than others.

My grandson (9), a mild extrovert, misses his many activities, especially orchestra, his friends, playgrounds, even being in school, but has adjusted. He understands and can explain quite articulately why it's important to keep social distance and his part in keeping himself, his family, and his city safe. But my granddaughter (almost 7) is an off-the-chart extrovert and people-person and is having a much harder time. She's tired of FaceTime, texting, and Google Classroom. DD told me that she does her schoolwork fine, but misses the teacher's in-person praise. (Oh noes--a trumpie in the making?!)
