The coronavirus has put other Easter traditions into question. For example, Easter egg hunts won’t be the same. Sure, you can hide a few eggs in your backyard. Otherwise, it will either involve counting how many pictures of eggs your neighbors put in their windows or some sort of online version.


Church services will have to be online. So will visiting extended family, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. As for dyeing eggs, you might not want to because of how scarce and expensive eggs have become.
