Amid the rapid spread of the coronavirus, many celebrities are practicing what they are calling social distancing. Social distancing is the act of staying in your own home and not going out to do social activities such as parties and other things to prevent the spread of this scary virus that is being spread around the world.

Although many celebrities are social distancing themselves, other people in different parts of the country, the younger generation who aren't as at risk of the disease, are going out and doing whatever they want right now.

As celebrities such as Hilary Duff, Taylor Swift, and Ariana Grande, and more are social distancing, they are reading posts on social media from many of the younger generations where they are saying that they are going out and doing anything they want. Many celebrities like Duff, Swift, and Grande are leaving important messages for these younger people telling them how important it is to stay indoors during this very scary time.

Duff, Swift, and Grande don't think the younger people are taking this scary situation we are all in as serious as they should be.

Taylor Swift said, "Guys — I follow you online and I love you guys so much and need to express my concern that things aren’t being taken seriously enough right now. I’m seeing a lot of get togethers and hangs and parties still happening. This is the time to cancel plans, actually truly isolate as much as you can, and don’t assume that because you don’t feel sick that you aren’t possibly passing something on to someone elderly or vulnerable to this. It’s a really scary time but we need to make some social sacrifices right now.”

Ariana Grande also took to Instagram to share her thoughts on this and said, "i keep hearing from a surprising amount of people statements like ‘this isn’t a big deal’ / ‘we’ll be fine’ … ‘we still have to go about our daily lives’ and it’s really blowing my mind. i understand if that is how u felt weeks ago. but please read about what’s going on. please don’t turn a blind eye. it is incredibly dangerous and selfish to take this situation that lightly. the ‘we will be fine because we’re young’ mindset is putting people who aren’t young and/or healthy in a lot of danger. you sound stupid and privileged and you need to care more about others. like now.”

Just like the previous two and many others who are social distancing themselves are encouraging everyone to do the same and stay indoors as much as possible right now. Hilary Duff took to Instagram during the weekend to share her thoughts on the coronavirus and what everyone should be doing.

She said, "To all you young millennial a **holes that keep going out partying: go home. Stop killing old people, please."

The posts from these celebrities urging everyone, especially the younger generation who don't seem to be taking it as seriously, is coming at an important time when top U.S health officials confirm that those who are at risk the most are the elderly and those who are easily vulnerable to getting sick. This means those who have a weaker immune system than others.

According to top U.S health official, Anthony Fauci, people need to be aware that although they are not as at risk for the disease, they can still spread it by going out and doing whatever they want,

He said, "Younger people should be concerned for two reasons: You are not immune or safe from getting seriously ill. So protect yourself. But remember: You could also be a vector or a carrier. ... That’s why everybody’s got to take this seriously."

Duff also posted a few days ago about the seriousness of this illness. She said on her Instagram, "These are scary times. We all have to stay calm but be smart. Take the precautions to stay healthy and keep our mothers and fathers and grandparents risk low until this passes. Love to all.”
