Since stage 3 of the coronavirus epidemic in France and lockdown are on, it radically (but temporarily) changes our lifestyle, but how to cope? Here are a few entertainment alternatives!

The coronavirus epidemic has changed our lives. Concerts cancelled, museums closed, no more stores, bars and restaurants…. A sunny weekend and some die-hard passersby who paid no heed to the health recommendations… Then, a gloomy Monday with a more generalized awareness. We hear it more and more: there will be a before and after coronavirus.

Starting this Tuesday March 17, 2020 at noon, France will be locked down. For some French deeply attached to entertainments outside, it’s like a condemnation. And yet, these measures are vital if we want to close the coronavirus pandemic chapter the best way possible. But yet, we’re wondering: what can we do now that everything is shut down? Without restaurants, exhibitions nor outings, life is so boring…

Be rest assured, you’re not totally without little life delights, you’ll simply have to enjoy them differently for a while! Lacking exhibitions? The whole world is expecting you with the visit of virtual museums and exhibitions with an extra immersion bonus if you have a virtual reality headset!

Missing concerts? Pay close attention to your favorite artists’ social networks, some could perform live. As for movies, you have Netflix, Prime Video, OCS, HBO and even Canal +, but did you know that Disney launches its streaming platform very soon in France? This is the art of timing.

And for sport addicts, we’ve also got good news for you: some gyms are adapting and propose streaming lessons. For instance, Studio Fit Ballet gives you access to online classes!

And while waiting for the day the coronavirus pandemic will no longer be one, this day stores will reopen, this day life will resume, we’ll let you know about the events coming after, new concert dates as they’ve been cancelled, and you can still list all spots you need to discover and for which you never have the time…. And support them while waiting for them to reopen.
