No table hopping in my restaurants since March 16th. Other shows cancelled. No surprise there.
BUT... I had a mom contact me regarding her daughter. This family would come in to see me quite often over the years. Well her daughter's birthday was coming up and since they couldn't visit the restaurant mom asked if I could send a message which she would add to other birthday wishes from family, friends and classmates. Mom was going to make a video for her daughter to watch.
I decided to put on a stand-up magic show, dressed up with a colorful sport jacket and I set up a beautiful backdrop. My wife video'd the show on her phone and sent it over. Needless to say mom was surprised and wasn't expecting it. She was very appreciative and I was happy to do it.

I was involved in something similar for a terminally ill child myself a couple of weeks back. These little things that can mean so much to people and if we can put a smile on someone's face we should jump at the chance ....well done David.

Schools are looking for ways to keep kids motivated during this unique period of virtual learning that most districts have adapted until the end of the school year.

I have used a "Magic Friday" approach where teachers can access me through GoogleMeets/Zoom at a pre-determined time to share a trick or two if the students meet a weekly learning goal.

Contact a couple of local elementary schools in your area with this idea...I'm sure there will be teachers/administrators who will be interested. It might even lead to an assembly performance in the future once schools are back to "normal".
