Arnold Schwarzenegger is apologizing to fans for the foreseeable future, because he's venturing out in public to get some exercise but is not going to be stopping for photos or conversation during the coronavirus pandemic. The "Terminator: Dark Fate" star has been filming PSA's on his social media, giving the public tips about the best practices to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Even though people are being advised to self-quarantine and practice social distancing, it doesn't mean they should shutter themselves inside and Schwarzenegger is trying to set the example.

'Stay At Home'

On Sunday, Schwarzenegger filmed a video with his two mini horses, Whiskey and Noodle. "The most important thing is that we stay at home," Schwarzenegger explained while sitting in his dining room.

He stressed that especially older people need to stay home and eat at home. Schwarzenegger fed his horses carrots and proclaimed that they are no longer going to restaurants anymore.

"‪Stay at home as much as possible. Listen to the experts, ignore the morons (foreheads). We will get through this together," he captioned the video.

No Selfies

Even though Schwarzenegger is practicing social distancing, he's still trying to partake in his favorite activity, biking! On Monday, he shared a video out riding near Muscle Beach in Venice near a big mural of himself.

"Doctors and experts say that riding my bike outside is OK so it’s the only way I’m leaving the house, but if you do ride your bike or go for a walk, don’t stop, avoid social contact," the 72-year-old star wrote.

Even though he's out in public, Schwarzenegger apologized ahead of time for not stopping to mingle with any fans:

"Apologies to everyone but I won’t be stopping on my rides for selfies. Stay positive, stay home as much as possible. Stay safe."

No Arnold Classic

Schwarzenegger is trying to keep a positive attitude, especially after he was forced to postpone his annual Arnold Sports Festival, as well as the Expo part of the Arnold Sports Classic. The bodybuilding competition was allowed to go down a few weeks ago, but the athletes were forced to pose down without an audience.

"It’s a sad day for me and everyone at the @ArnoldSports team. But we will always put our fans’ health first. After discussions with @GovMikeDeWine, Mayor Ginther, and the CDC, we will be postponing the expo because we can’t risk bringing 250,000 people together with #COVID19," Schwarzenegger explained in a somber video.
