Here in America, we are practicing the art of "social distancing."

These social distancing measures have been imposed to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

COVID-19 has been spreading across the globe at an alarming rate...

And, by socially distancing and isolating ourselves from others...

Millions are currently self-isolating within their homes...

And this could go on for quite some time.Over the weekend, President Trump announced that the federal guidelines on social distancing have been extended for at least another thirty days.
So, folks, we could be quarantined for quite some time.

Lance Priebe, one of the co-founders of the original Club Penguin has a theory on why so many people are coming back.Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he said: “For most of the kids that are coming back, Club Penguin was where they found their friends. "There’s a strong connection there when you have your friendships, your community, your circle. It’s important to reconnect with it, especially with that change of life right now."
He continued:“It’s still their home. It’s still their tree fort and playground. It’s still their place. The penguins just all grew up."
As soon as the news reached Twitter, the site exploded with reactions...
