LANE COUNTY, Ore. — You may be stuck at home this Easter, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to do.

Connie Chow, the founder of, says it's important to connect to one another right now more than ever.

Chow is a leading information provider to primary caregivers around the country. She says zoom, skype or facetime, or just a simple phone call can go a long way.

Easter egg hunts from home out in the garden for kids and Easter themed bingo for everyone was a popular go-to this year.

"Another thing you can do is if church is part of your Easter tradition, you can attend virtual church services,” Chow said. “There are many organizations that are offering that this year."

Chow says it doesn't matter what you're doing on easter as long as you're doing it safely, but she says to make sure to think about what the holiday really means to you.

"For a lot of people it's celebrating Spring,” she said. “I think it's important to just do what you can and what makes sense. So, if you're not feeling up to it, definitely get the rest you need. If you are feeling up to it, do what you can. Getting together virtually is a great substitute."

She says decorating the house for Easter is a popular suggestion for beating those quarantine blues.
