Kurt Sutter recently held a Q&A with fans on social media while being quarantined with his wife Katey Sagal during the coronavirus outbreak.
At one point, the "Sons of Anarchy" creator asked how they're handling isolation amid the pandemic.
"We are safe. Healthy. Obeying the guidelines. Staying indoors as much as possible. Social distancing if we go out. Doing 12-step meetings on Zoom," Sutter wrote in an Instagram story answer.
"The kid is doing remote learning," Sutter continued. "It's actually a full day for her. Her school is doing an amazing job keeping them on curricula. She's adapting... although the novelty has worn off."
He add that he's still riding his Harley and "the dogs are being walked," he said. "They are very confused as to why we are home... all the time. And frankly, they don't seem all that happy about it."
He admitted that he does struggle mentally some days.
"I wake up every morning and all I want to do is dive into a dark hole of despair," he confessed. "Find all the things that are wrong, unfair and scary -- but I force myself into contrary action. I'm acutely aware that I have a choice -- I can be a part of the problem or a part of the solution. I do it imperfectly and sometimes begrudgingly, but today I chose to be a part of the solution."
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.
