I do a few dry fire sessions a week, all the time. Usually seeking perfection for dry fire. A plus sign drawn on an index card with a sharpie and tape to the wall, aim for the intersection. Or pencil drill.
For practical stuff like drawing and firing, transitions and such I use my Glock 19 bb pistol in the backyard. It is great for that ind of stuff.
Fun is air pistol silhoulette and 10 meter air pistol in the backyard. I will probably buy a 10 meter air rifle at some point as well.
These aren't Corona activities. I do it regularly because I like it and regardless of how often I go to the range. Or how often I don't go during this recent unpleasantness.
It takes a Viking to raze a village.

You're not alone...I think the higher ups thinks it's a way to ensure those of us placed on telework are working...."virtual mtgs" complete with slides and desktop chat.

I think I'll do the same, I just cleaned my match pistol so the least I can do is dry-fire during my 1400 DCS session.

Mea culpa, I'm the higher up driving this one. We hold a weeklong orientation for new leaders in my career field every year at the Pentagon. It helps new squadron commanders, CMSgt's, and MAJCOM/COCOM/Component Directors prepare for their key roles and get to know the people on the other end of the phone. For obvious reasons we cancelled the in-person conference, but many wanted the info anyway. So I directed my staff to distro the full set of orientation info and offer talking through it on WebEx. Many recipients said they wanted it by teleconference if possible, so that's what we're offering (not directed) and about 3/4 of the newbies joined in today. We compressed 3 days into 2 five hour web meetings of about 50 people. One more day to go.

Laser training cartridge and iTarget app. You can make your own cell phone mount and target holder easily enough. I've been looki8ng for mine lately. Haven't seen it since a trip in July.
When seconds count, help is only 18+ minutes away!

I've been dry firing since before COVID-19 was a thing.
