It's Getting Real


The star showed off the empty Italian streets as he noted that only a few people are working and going outside.

"Well, today they literally shut everything down," Joe explained. "There's like not even any suppliers, nothing open. No cafes, not anything today."

He continued, "So basically they're containing this virus... I guess it's good in a way but at least we got a couple of guys to come out and go to work today, so we are gonna get something done today."

Joe explained that he cannot just sit inside all-day so he has to get out of the house. "We gotta do what we gotta do. It sucks but it is what it is."

"Be safe, wash your hands," Giudice concluded.

Fans Appreciate The Update


Many of his fans don't know what to believe about the Coronavirus and what is going on overseas. With President Trump announcing that all travel from Europe to the United States will be suspended, several followers said they appreciated Joe's first-hand experience.

"Be safe Joe, not sure what to believe about this virus🙏," one concerned fan commented, while another said, "Thanks for sharing insight Joe! Be safe."

It must be scary being separated from your family and kids during this time and one specific fan tried to give him some comfort.

"Praying for you during this time! I know it’s tough being away from your daughters. Prayers for you today! ✝️"

Italy's Lockdown
