There are many ways that we can stay connected remotely while we physically distance. Consider using these options to stay connected to family, friends, supports and coworkers!
For iPhone/iPad users, FaceTime is a great, built into your phone, video chat app. Chat with just one other iPhone user or a group!
Whatsapp is an application that can be used by multiple phone platforms, and can help you connect via call, messages and video chats. So it doesn't matter if you are an apple or an android user, you can connect with anyone who also has Whatsapp.

Skype is another video chat program that can be used on a computer or phone!
