Things to Do this Week During the COVID-19 Pandemic

With the widespread closures of stores and venues, the postponement of larger events, and the temporary halt of dining in at restaurants due to Covid-19 safety restrictions, we’ve put together this list of things you can do from home.  During challenging times, activities such as these are good for our mind and body and are helpful to the local business community as well.

Of course, if you need of a change of scenery this might be a great time to book a stay in our beautiful Colonial house.  Come and enjoy a stay-cation at Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast.  We’re open, and ready to welcome you with the level of personalized service and exceptional hospitality you’ve come to expect.  Book with us at or by phone at 315-982-5004.

Order Take-Out or Buy a Restaurant Gift Card

Even though restaurants are closed for dine-in service right now, you can still support your local restaurants by ordering take-out or getting delivery service. Or consider buying a gift certificate.

Try Out a New Recipe

There’s never been a better time to add some new items to your cooking repertoire, grocery inventory permitting. May we suggest checking our blog for a new recipe in the coming week?


Now’s as good a time as any to get in the practice of meditation at home. It’s a good reminder to stay grounded and form habits that will have a positive impact on our lives. InBloom Yoga now offers livestreaming classes on their Facebook page.

Listen to Music Online

Regardless of the activity you’ve found to stay busy at home, music makes it better.  Music is a healthy way of expressing yourself and has been shown in studies to reduce depression and anxiety and help relieve chronic pain.
