Self-isolation doesn’t mean you have to be lonely during the coronavirus outbreak; you can still create connections while staying safe and healthy.
Enter the Quarantine Together dating app. The tool was designed by Daniel Ahmadizadeh and Christopher Smeder to invite those stuck at home to still stay bonded via online human connections. The website and app launched on 15 March 2020 and saw over 200 sign-ups so far, according to Ahmadizadeh.
The text-based app sends out reminders to users at 6pm asking if they have washed their hands, and once they have done so and answered “yes,” they will be linked with another user through text.
Ahmadizadeh told CNN that the app “is specific to how people are living in this time,” and that it’s not about the users’ photos or bios but “actually being able to talk to another person.”
