Shoot a video:

No fancy set. No hair and makeup. No need to memorize. Just turn the camera on yourself (in landscape mode) and read one of these lines:

  • Hi, this is [NAME] reminding you that we are socially distancing but we're closer than ever. We are #TogetherApart. Now take this message and pass it on: spread the word, not the germ.

  • [NAME] here. [Talk about any way that you've reached out to someone else during the #Coronacrisis] Remember that we are #TogetherApart. Spread the word, not the germ.

  • This is [NAME] and I want to share... [Talk about how someone has reached out to you in some meaningful way.] Remember: we are #TogetherApart. Spread the word, not the germ.

  • [NAME] here. [Any jokes, ironic observations, or funny ha-has about how we are more connected than ever.] The irony is we are #TogetherApart. Spread the word, not the germ.
