      FOR SOME FUN

      “A COVID 19-proof activity that will get you outside and that will improve your mental health:  Mobile App called Goose Chase -- it is a scavenger hunt.  Your family forms a team, and you get in the car and find items on a list.  You compete against other families.  You upload photos or videos when you have found the item or completed the activity.  You drive around.  Yes, you need somebody who puts together the scavenger hunt items and moderates whether the videos or photos are accessible.  It can last a few hours.”
