"Climbing the stairway to heaven, because this virus has scared the H-E-L-L out of out us," she sang before switching to speaking into the camera.

"I'm not making light of the situation. Well, maybe I am, because it's the light, I believe, that’s gonna dissolve the situation. I think God is in this, I really do," she said. "I think he's trying to hold us up to the light so we can see ourselves and see each other through the eyes of love. And I hope we learn that lesson."

"I think that when this passes, we're gonna all be better people," Parton continued. "I know that I have a positive attitude about it, as negative as it seems to be right now. So just keep the faith, don't be too scared, it's gonna be alright, God loves us."

She captioned the post, "Keep the faith." Fans in the comments appreciated her message.

"Been thinking a lot about your quote from Steele Magnolias 'laughter through tears is my favorite emotion,'" one said.

"I swear the pope needs to make her a saint already," another wrote.

"You are the queen of positivity. THE WORLD NEEDS YOU. Please be safe Dolly, i will literally fist fight this virus if anything happens to you," a third replied.

Staying Safe

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.
