Quarantine Lifestyle
SPECIAL EDITION

A NOTE FROM THE THERITAGE TEAM
The coronavirus pandemic is unprecented, it has shown the vulnerability of our society but also its most committed, supportive
and responsible side. In today´s world we are accustomed to socializing, going out and enjoying travelling but the world has
understood that it is time to stay at home, to take care of our loved ones and ourselves.
No one is indifferent to the effects of this pandemic and neither are we at Theritage. Over the last few weeks practically every
country in the world has first established recommendations, then restrictions and finally prohibitions. Governments are trying to
stop the spread of the virus and one of the ways to do this is by asking people to stay home.
Facing these challenges, our team now working from home, has compiled a Quarantine Lifestyle issue, to ease the time spent at
home, seeking ways to somehow bring you a sense of normality, ideas to reinvent yourself or to keep you entertained in these
extreme times.
Our team wishes your families, loved ones and friends all the best for the times ahead.
STAY HEALTHY, STAY HOME
