    Saori: My sister and I just bought an iPad for my grandfather and sent it to him at the assisted-

    living facility where he lives.

    Sean: Have you not seen him since the coronavirus outbreak began?

    Saori: No. I've talked to him on the phone, but I haven't seen him in over two months.

    Anne: That's sad, especially since you guys are so close.

    Saori: I know. I miss him so much. So my sister and I figured if he had a tablet, we could video chat with him. He could chat with my sister's kids that way, too.

    Anne: Is he going to know how to use the tablet?

    Saori: We called the facility, and they said someone would help him with it.

    Anne: That's good.

    Sean: You're not going to visit him yet, even though some local governments have begun loosening restrictions on people congregating?

    Saori: The people who live at the facility where my grandfather lives are all older and at high risk.

    Anne: Yeah, you wouldn't throw caution to the wind in a situation like that.

    Sean: I wonder when you'll actually feel OK to visit him.

    Saori: I'm hoping sooner than later.
