We are under Stay at home guidelines for my NC county (Mecklenburg) for at least 3 weeks. I am putting a battery tender (or trickle charger) on my Onyx every few days to keep the charge up. I keep one on my mower and a 2002 Audi TT Roadster that I don’t drive all the time and it makes a huge difference in battery life. There is always a drain on a newer cars battery and this will keep it charged if not being used for a while. I am just swapping the one from the TT but they are not expensive. Any other ideas?

Yep just don't go crazy without driving the subie for a few weeks. I know i would go nuts without driving mine. But with all joking aside i believe it should be fine sitting for a few weeks. Just look at all the cars that sit at the dealership for all that time before someone test drives it.

If you want to use the trickle charger to keep it charged up, go for it. I don’t have a 2020, but I’ve left mine sitting for 5-6 weeks at a time (same with the prior Gen5 I had). Didn’t do anything special other than lock the doors.
