After being chastised towards the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic here in America after foregoing social distancing for Spring Break trips they chose to honor, it seems like Gen-Z is now adhering to the many shelter in place orders sent out by local and state governments.
With that being said, we now have an idea of how Gen-Zers are biding their time during this quarantine period. EduBirdie reports that 70% of the people surveyed report they FaceTime with their friends when they can and host virtual parties.
15% of those surveyed said they began reading more books now that they have time to finish what they started. More than half said they are binge-watching popular shows on Netflix like the Tiger King, Ozark, and Love is Blind.
40% have taken to their favorite gaming systems, playing favorites like Call of Duty, Animal Crossing, and Mario Kart. Almost 30% said they’re using this time to bond more with their family … doing things like watching movies and/or playing board/card games. Lastly, 80% admitted eating way too much food to help pass the time.
So whether it’s FaceTiming, binge-watching, or eating … Gen-Z is making the best of this time inside.
