We’re told it could be weeks if not months before social distancing measures ease up across Canada. No some local businesses are stepping up, offering free or by-donation online classes and activities to keep mind and body occupied.

Here’s a taste.

Get cooking

.

In Stittsville, Italian restaurant Pocopazzo is offering take-out only these days, so chef-owner Emanuele Leonsorte is refocusing his energy on posting online videos to help teach Italian cooking to people stuck at home.

A father to four housebound kids, and preoccupied about relatives back in Italy, Leonsorte said he understands the value of keeping people entertained.

“People want to laugh and they want to cook still. This way we can keep them busy, and they can make their own meal at home.”

Be flexible
