In the midst of COVID-19 pandemic pandemonium, this Victoria-based Facebook group is putting the "social" back in "social distancing."

GET DOWN WITH THE LOCKDOWN! is a public group promoting positivity in light of trying times through art, humour, photos and videos. 

The group was created March 14 and already has over two thousand members. 

People are posting their at-home quarantine or isolation activities, and sharing art, music and humour. Admins will be scheduling live streamed music performances from various artists to offer everyone a free, online concert.

Others post food photos, recipes, photos of nature near their homes, and their pets and craft activities.

Some posts feature gardening, sharing photos of plants, and tips for houseplant care.

Due to a cancelled spring break holiday, one user posted photos of their "Staycation," featuring the hashtag #almostmexico.
