There’s one from Oscar the Grouch. He loves being away from everyone else, so he’s a social distancing expert. Oscar tells kids, “I don’t care if you’re alone or safe at home with someone else, as long as you’re not with me.”

Grover offers more friendly suggestions and he’s all for practicing self-care. “Get some healthy exercise – like sit ups,” he says. “And after sit-ups, you’ve earned a nice sit-down.”
