Virtual travel: “View from My Window” makes you travel the world in quarantine
Barbara Duriau had created a Facebook Page- View from My Window. This virtual platform allows millions of people to treat their eyes by viewing beautiful travel pictures.
Duriau was keen to know about the circumstances and reality across the world. She is a freelance graphic designer from Amsterdam, and in late March, she posted a picture showing the view from her window. When the lockdown started, she realized that everyone is stuck with the same view.
By a month after she created this page, more than two million people joined the page. This page has brought out stories of various people, and people share more than just their view.
Sarah Hill from Arrowbear Lake posted that she finds it interesting to look at pictures posted by others as she has travelled internationally with her husband. In mid-April, she posted a snowy landscape picture. Hill explained she wanted to post this as many would find this unique and would not expect to see in Southern California; she wanted to share her perspective from that little part of the world. Hill said her post got comments from individuals in Michigan right to Austria, and she's not the only one. Each upload receives uncountable comments from individuals everywhere throughout the world, sharing expressions of inspiration and support.
The creator, Duriau, expressed her will to publish a book with the pictures from this Facebook group, and she would donate the earnings for a social cause.

Governor does not provide dates: Wedding Venue industry in trouble?
Large wedding venues like Ohio, which can hold more than 1000 people, closed in March, the same day when the Arnold Sports Classic was closed to spectators.
General Manager Hank Straty exclaimed that everything stopped immediately.
Dr Amy Acton, Ohio’s Health director, gave a mandatory health order that prohibits any event or gathering that brings 50 or more people in a single room or other indoor or outdoor place at the same time. The order remains in effect until the Governor Mike De Wine’s State of Emergency prevails. Henceforth, President Trump declared no get-togethers of more than ten people. This order has led to a temporary downfall in the wedding industry’s economy.
The manager says they see other businesses resuming; they to want to comply, but there is no communication.
The Ohio Governor told that he is concerned about social distancing; some caterers say that they can comply with the limitations just like restaurants. DeWine also said that he was not ready to give out any date to confirm when the receptions could begin, but if bars can restart, even halls can resume. In a bar, many people standing in groups is a concern, and that is the reason behind booked table compulsion.
Straty informed that they are quite a large venue wherein they can accommodate a lot more than just ten people, maintaining social distancing.
