OK think  — FORM A POD “quaranteam” and  Keep your Pod Small
Forming a pandemic pod or bubble known as a “quaranteam,” the strategy has been adopted by a number of families — especially those with young children — and close-knit friend groups. It requires people in the pod to follow strict safety protocols, such as mask-wearing and social distancing, when they are in public or interacting with others outside the group. Ideally, pod members can then socialize together in person in settings where the rules can be relaxed, without increased risk of contracting or spreading the virus.
“The most important thing in my mind is just trying to think about who are those individuals who I trust with my safety and they would trust me with theirs,” O’Horo said.
“Don’t be afraid to be selfish when you’re thinking about that. The people who you might consider your good friends aren’t necessarily the people who you would trust in this situation.”
Pod mates should not be “casual friends,” Cannuscio said, adding, “These have to be people you can share very intimate conversations with.”
Expect to talk regularly about the “minutia of daily life” and be willing to be open about your health and any potential exposures with the rest of the group, she said. Cannuscio also emphasized the importance of making sure you actually like spending time with the people in your pod.
Listen to your intuition about the relationships you have with all the members of the pod,” she said. “If your intuition tells you that someone is going to rub you the wrong way, they will really rub you the wrong way as winter sets in and we’re locked into these pods.”
