• Here are nine Quebec Airbnbs where guests can actually get out of the house and explore while practicing social distancing.
  • At these cottages and chalets, you can have some fun and minimize coronavirus exposure risk.

Staying home and watching Netflix could actually save lives, according to public health experts. Governments and celebrities are promoting social distancing — "minimizing close contact with others during the peak of an outbreak" — as a way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to vulnerable populations, like the elderly and people with compromised immune systems. Luckily, there are plenty of Quebec Airbnbs where residents can do just that.
