I am curious about not only the premise of the contest but the effort to add a "prize" to it when virtually no normal contest has such a prize.
In many areas we are now being encouraged to GO OUT not stay home. Going to work, doing business with the badly hurting local shops that are now opened, and getting badly needed exercise and social interaction. All while respecting social distancing guidelines.
Other than a few major city hotspots, are people actually still being forced by their governments to stay home? And only leave the house for essential purposes? I talk to a lot of people around the globe for business and that certainly is not the case in many places globally, let alone the vast majority of the US right now.
