social distancingWhile some parts of the country are starting to slowly re-open in phases, our new normal will be much different. We must take precautions to protect ourselves and the people around us. As we all know, social distancing can get boring and it is easy to run out of ideas quickly. The team at Greenlight has helped come up with 21 fun, social-distancing friendly ideas for you and the family this summer. Try them out and tag us in your photos on Facebook!
