Coronavirus pandemic: Demi Lovato, Elton John, Millie Bobby Brown take up #IStayHomeFor challenge

Taking up self-isolation and practicing social distancing could go a long way in stopping the spread of coronavirus. And this is what a number of celebrities are promoting by taking up the #IStayHomeFor challenge.

It seems that the trend was started by actor Kevin Bacon who posted a short video clip on Instagram explaining what the challenge was and sharing that he is taking the challenge for his wife Kyra Sedgwick.

“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,” wrote the Hollow Man actor.

#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
