As they stay home and adapt to social distancing due to the spread of COVID-19 the residents throughout the city are getting creative. Several parents are now simultaneously working from home and taking care of children no longer in school. The Beverley Hills neighborhood has started a new activity called “Walking Wednesdays” to help keep kids entertained, mentally stimulated and active.
According to alextimes.com, "Every Wednesday, neighbors decorate their windows, porches and front yards with artwork based around a specific theme. Then, throughout the day, kids and their parents can walk the neighborhood to admire the displays and hunt for hidden art. The event started with St. Patrick’s Day. Resident Meredith West introduced the concept of a “Shamrock Walk” to the Beverley Hills list serve after hearing the suggestion from her 5-year-old daughter’s preschool teacher."
As per alextimes.com, "The neighbors plan to keep the walks going every Wednesday. More than 90 households have pledged to participate by entering their addresses on an online form. On April 1, the theme is superheroes or cartoon characters, while April 8 will be Easter/spring-themed. “I think during this uncertain time, people are looking for community,” West said. “It’s just a really simple way to create a community and do something together while we have to stay so far apart from each other."
