In case your quarantine playlist could use a couple of new additions



Hello, April, and hello, extended community quarantine. As we brace ourselves for the longer lockdown period, now ending April 30th, it’s time we focus our attention on the things that ought to help us get by. In the spirit of bayanihan, giving back to the frontliners while staying #SafeAtHome remains highly encouraged. It’s just as important that while mass testing gets underway, you make sure you help yourself only to accurate COVID-19 information on the internet. Let’s not forget self-care during this time, too, and remember to find time to take care of your mental health during isolation.
