Stuck inside for coronavirus precautions?

Share a meal with friends and family who are in the same boat.

Here’s how to have a dinner party during coronavirus quarantine.

Video chat services like Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts and FaceTime allow for virtual dinner parties.

Fox News says most of these have a conference function so you can see everyone’s face on the same screen.

Just pick a time and place the camera at the head of the table for the best view.

Cook the same meal – or get delivery from the same restaurant.

If you’re all following the same recipe, you can turn on the camera during the meal prep stage to make sure everyone’s on the same page – whether in a physical cookbook or on a tablet.

Foodie website, MyRecipes.com suggests picking something simple – in terms of skill and ingredients – so it’s easy for everyone to join in.

If you live near friends and family, host a social-distancing dinner by eating at the edge of your driveway, on your front porch, in the cul-de-sac or on lawn chairs making sure they’re at least six feet apart.

There’s some food for thought!
