Welcome to #QuarantineLife.

As millions of Americans begin adjusting to staying at home for at least the next several weeks, the hashtag "QuarantineLife" was the top trending topic on Twitter Monday morning.

With the number of national cases now reaching 4,100, President Donald Trump and his coronavirus task force on Monday issued new, stricter guidelines to stop the spread of the disease. The guidelines call on Americans to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people; avoid eating and drinking in bars, restaurants, and public food courts; and encouraging schooling from home across the country.

Thousands of social media users shared photos, videos and gifs -- seeming to take the changes to daily life in stride.
