According to Fox News, McConaughey does not believe that self-isolation is a defense. He told Associated Press on Monday, “It seemed like we need to let the message out that staying home is more than a good idea, that it’s actually what we need to do — what's necessary to win. That’s why we started it off with saying, let’s look at this as it is a war that we’re in, instead of just saying, ‘Hey, is it a good defense to go stay at home?’ No, actually, it’s our greatest offense right now.”

While he encouraged fans to practice social-distancing, he also said, "You see humanity acting and it’s at its best in a lot of ways. You see people helping out the least vulnerable in ways that maybe they weren’t before. You see a lot of more compassion.” So in times of need, its humanity that rises, even if humans have to stay far from each other.

McConaughey Has A Simple Message: Stay Home

McConaughey uploaded a video on Instagram, with his voiceover in the background, saying: "We are at war with a virus, and health-care troops and first responders are on the front line fighting it every day. Let's join the fight by staying home. Staying home is not a retreat, it's the bravest and aggressive weapon we have against this enemy. When we do stay at home, we prevent overwhelming our hospitals while buying time for our scientists to find the vaccine. And that is how we beat it." The video ends with a simple message: “Stay home.”
