While the novel coronavirus has changed the daily routines of many people across the globe with governments putting them in lockdown, people are still trying to find the best ways to carry on with their daily lives as normally as possible.

We’ve already seen many wholesome examples of people managing to have social experiences with as little risk as is still possible these days. However, one thing is certain—no place is safer than your own home. Therefore, the famous actor Matthew McConaughey figured how to brighten up Texan seniors’ days without taking them away from the security of their home and hosted a wholesome game of bingo online.

While people of various age groups all across the world are quarantined or are self-isolating in order to avoid getting infected with the novel coronavirus, senior citizens are of particular concern. As they are at a higher risk of COVID-19 ending fatally if they get infected, many seniors have been forced to completely isolate themselves with no visits from family or friends. Furthermore, all the social events at retirement homes have been canceled to avoid risks.

Well, while it may all seem very grim indeed, actor Matthew McConaughey figured out the most wholesome way to brighten up the skies for a senior facility in his home state of Texas. Earlier this month, he tweeted a video urging people to “turn a red light into a green light” by taking care of ourselves and each other. It seems like he definitely found a way to turn on a green light.
