Kendall Jenner shared an Instagram post on Monday night about self-quarantining. The model posted a gallery of candid photos of her and her friends with a caption about how much she misses being able to see them.
“i miss my friends. the sooner we quarantine, the sooner we can get back to our peoples again,” she wrote
Kendall’s sister Kylie has been consistently urging people to stay home and practice safe social distancing.
“Please stay inside, you guys,” she said on Thursday. “Please say inside, practice social distancing, self-quarantine. If you live with your parents, you don’t want to go home and get your parents sick. You might have it and not even know, infecting other people. The only way we’re going to slow this down is if we do this because there’s no cure right now. Nobody is immune to this, millennials are not immune to this.”
“New evidence actually shows that a large percentage of people in the hospital right now are young adults,” Jenner said. “I love you guys, we’re gonna get through this together. We just have to listen to each other, respect each other, self-quarantine. I encourage other influencers to also speak out.”
Their other sister, Kim Kardashian, also shared a message about staying apart on March 18.
“PLEASE do not ignore the severity of the warnings to stay inside to stop the spread of this virus. We will all get through this! #TogetherApart,” she wrote.
Heath officials are urging people to remain in their homes as much as possible and avoid all social gatherings. Additionally, the CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
