Amid the increasing measures across the world to halt the further spread of COVID-19, staying at home has emerged as one of the simplest but most effective methods of containment.

The hashtag envelopes a wide assortment of posts, including challenging others to “juggle” a roll of toilet paper with their feet, how people are spending their time while quarantined at home, as well as various jokes and memes.

Most importantly, the trend promotes the best practices (such as washing your hands and social distancing) to deter the further spread of coronavirus.
