Your Friday the 13th coronavirus update: social distancing, supporting the arts, and more

Social Distancing Etiquette
With no confirmed cases, Spokane remains on-alert and social-distancing is encouraged. How's that gonna look? Three public health experts weigh in on various scenarios. Choose your own adventure. (The Atlantic)

Arts Delivery
Here's advice from coronavirus-epicenter, Seattle, on ways to continue support the arts, while you're avoiding crowds. Check out unique streaming opportunities. (Crosscut)
From now through April, ontheboards.tv is totally free. Created by cutting edge dance and performance venue On the Boards, the digital streaming platform has long allowed viewers to see pieces they missed (or go back for another helping). 

Coping with Sports Stoppage
Sports — all of them — are canceled. How are you going to fill all those hours you planned to spend watching March Madnesss? Maybe sports-related films can help fill the void. The poignant Hoopdreams from 1994 occupies the number one spot. (Vulture)
Hoop Dreams has some nerve-racking sports scenes — has a free throw ever been more momentous? — but what’s wonderful about the documentary is the light it shines on all the aspects of the sporting life that most films ignore.
