To help curb loneliness, Cornell students create ‘Quarantine Buddy’


(NEWS10) – Recommended by Governor Cuomo in one of his daily briefing emails, Quarantine Buddy was created to help curb loneliness and isolation during the pandemic.

The creators behind the project are three Cornell students studying computer science. Sam Brickman, Jordyn Goldzweig and Alisa Lai created Quarantine Buddy to combat the feeling of loneliness they’ve heard a lot of their peers complain about during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, the platform is bringing people of all ages and from all areas of the world together.
