“My Best Friend Is A Healthcare Professional,” Emma Watson Shares Why She’s Staying Home

While many of us globally are self-isolating as a precautionary measure against COVID-19, there are few others who still haven’t realized the severity of the situation. And, while official authorities are trying to raise awareness about the situation, celebrities have also come up with creative ways to highlight the importance of social distancing.

Like, a few days ago, actor Kevin Bacon came up with the I Stay Home For campaign on Instagram, reports Daily Mail. He tagged his celebrity friends asking them to join and give reasons for staying home amid the ongoing pandemic.

Have a look at the #istayhomefor challenge:

#IStayHomeFor @kikkosedg! Hey everybody, it’s now so important to stay home and keep our distance from others if you are able. It’s one way we can help prevent the spread of #Coronavirus and save lives. The more of us who can, make it safer for those who can’t. So if you’re home too like me, post a video or photo with a sign like mine, telling who you are staying home for and ask 6 friends to do the same. Post it with the hashtag #IStayHomeFor so I can see and share. The more folks involved, the merrier – We’re all connected by various degrees (Trust me, I know!) I’m kicking it off with @jimmyfallon @eltonjohn @Brandicarlile @kevinhart4real @ddlovato @davidbeckham – but I encourage YOU ALL to join in too! Let’s use this 6 Degree thing to do some good! . . . . #Corona #Coronavirus #StayHome #StaySafe #6Degrees #ThinkingOfYou #SpreadTheWord
