Jacob Mullins, a partner at the Silicon Valley venture capital firm Shasta Ventures, is one of the estimated 6.7 million people in the San Francisco Bay Area who have been sheltering in place since March 17.
He works out of his 500-square-foot San Francisco apartment, fly fishes in the Bay, teaches himself how to play the violin, takes video meetings in virtual reality, and is growing a “COVID beard.”
He and his wife also have a socially distant happy hour with their neighbors on their respective balconies every Friday at 7 pm to maintain a grip on some semblance of normalcy during a global health crisis.
“In a world where it’s Groundhog Day and every day feels the same, it’s nice, the things we look forward to every week,” Mullins told Business Insider.
