Quaranadult (quarantine + adult)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in many quarantines. There is no “teen” in the word “quarantine,” but some have used “quaranadult” (quarantine + adult). A “quaranadult” is an adult under quarantine, or a quarantine for an extended period of time.

“My doctor told me to stay home under quarantine, but I said Doctor, id rather stay home under QuaranAdult!” was posted on Twitter by FabDavBolous on March 4, 2020. “Although it is a quarantine, you must still behave like a quaranadult” was posted on Twitter by Stefan on March 13, 2020. “This Quarantine is getting old. So old in fact, that is it starting to become a Quaranadult” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on April 3, 2020.

“Quaranchild” and “Quaranchildren” are similar terms. “At first, I thought I wanted a quarantine baé. But nope. Not about to get my insides dug out for the next month just to end up with a quaranchild” was posted on Twitter by Sorted to House Dereon - Stripper Peacock on March 16, 2020. “quarantine quaranadult quaranchild” was posted on Twitter by aoko aozaki on March 18, 2020. “A Quarantine implies the existence of a Quaranchild and a Quaranadult” was posted on Twitter by Mini Modu on March 18, 2020. “The existence of quarantines implies the existence of quaranchildren, quaranadults and quaranelders” was posted on Twitter by The Person Under The Stairs on March 19, 2020.

Similar “quarantine” portmanteau words include “quaranteen” (quarantine + teen), “quaranteenager” (quarantine + teenager) and “quarantween” (quarantine + teen).

Although it is a quarantine, you must still behave like a quaranadult.

Everybody talking about this Quarantine, but if it’s such a big deal then I think we can call it a QuaranAdult.

Maybe we need a plan for everybody and not just teens. I understand quaranteens have worked in the past but we need to Quaranelderly, Quaranadult and quaranchildren. When you single out one age group like that of course they are going to feel alienated and want to rebel.

As it is called Quarantine we are to assume that the Quaranadult is on its way very very soon.
