Audrey Roloff and her husband Jeremy are on the receiving end of some backlash after posting Easter Sunday photos from what fans say is someone else’s house. Some people are accusing the “Little People, Big World” stars of not practicing proper social distancing.
On Monday, Roloff shared a gallery of images on Instagram with the caption, “We loved celebrating resurrection Sunday yesterday. He lives! All honor and power are His all glory forever amen, JESUS LIVES! He is our living hope. Drop a ?? emoji in the comments below if you believe it too!”
While most people responded with the emoji, others pointed out that these photos appeared to be at someone else’s house.
“I noticed a picture you took with your sister — aren’t there rules about social distancing and stay at home orders in Oregon right now?” someone pointed out. “As an influencer I would have hoped that you would influence people to social distance. There are hundreds of thousands of people dying and here you are out enjoying and afternoon with your family.”
“Are you exempt from the rules of social distancing?” another fan asked. “I thought you and Jer were really cool people. You had stayed at home and did online video chats with people for a number of nights and then Easter comes and all that goes out the window so Ember can paint and you can have a coffee at your parents house and then you Instagram that to over 1 million people.”
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.
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.
