April 14, 2020 - Home Together Hampton! That’s the name for a new, city-wide campaign to share tips and encourage others as we all stay home - whenever possible - to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
We’re asking city leaders, teachers, health experts and everybody else - people from all walks of life - to send us a short video or photo describing what you’re doing to keep busy and stay positive as you stay home. Do you have a favorite routine for dinner now that the family may be home together? Has mom or dad rediscovered the joy or yard work, or crafts? What are teachers doing, and how are students being taught? Have you found a new way to relax, or to work?
One example might be a video of your family playing a game, with your explanation that … “my children discovered some of the games I used to love, and now we have game night several nights a week. We are Home Together Hampton.” Or, "I miss my church services. I’m keeping the faith by meeting virtually with the congregation and with my pastor. Let’s make sure we all stay home so that we can flatten the curve of this virus and get back to church. We are Home Together Hampton."
And don’t forget to remind everybody: “We are Home Together Hampton”
