Stay in touch with your family and friends. It is likely that grandparents are really missing their grandchildren and vice versa. A video chat will ensure that families and friends still get to see each other as much as possible, not just to offer reassurances, but also to share some laughter and smiles together. There are many apps that provide multiple persons link-up opportunities (EG Zoom, House Party, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Skype), consider joining an online community ‘get-together’; have a virtual coffee morning or family quiz night!
