Celebrities like Demi Lovato, Millie Bobby Brown, Emma Watson, Asher Angel, Perrie Edwards, Bebe Rexha and more have taken part in the Instagram #IStayHomeFor Challenge to encourage their followers to self distance themselves amid the current coronavirus pandemic. Hollywood legend Kevin Bacon started this challenge in an effort to keep people inside their homes and self-quarantine, so they don’t continue to spread the illness. Stars are taking to social media and sharing the names of family members and friends that they have been staying home for to keep each other safe.
Instagram has also created a way to urge app users to stay inside and self isolate. The social media platform recently unveiled their Stay Home feature, a sticker that people can add to their Instagram Stories and share what they are doing at home. Photos and videos tagged with this feature will be added together in a collection of Stay Home Instagram Stories. This was also created to help spread the important message of staying inside.
For those who missed it, the World Health Organization has reported that over 340,000 people have contracted virus so far, resulting in more than 15,000 deaths. Medical professionals have called for “social distancing” to prevent further spreading of the illness, which is defined as “trying to keep yourself away from other people, especially large crowds.” Because of this many events, concerts and festivals have been canceled, including all Broadway plays and sports games. People have been asked to avoid public spaces and quarantine themselves during this time. Scroll through our gallery to see which celebrities have taken part in the #IStayHomeFor Challenge.
