SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — During California's stay at home order, residents are being asked to stay inside if they can to fight the spread of the coronavirus.

While this may change weekend plans, there are several virtual events that San Diegans can take part in to pass the time.

From virtual workouts to concerts to education, families can gather around and enjoy some special content while staying home.
