Celebrities are not exempt from social distancing, folks!

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the influx of cases in the United States, the Centers for Disease Control is urging people to practice social distancing to slow down the spread of the virus. Hollywood is already being affected by the pandemic as Tom Hanks, Idris Elba and more have tested positive for COVID-19.

Celebrities are doing their parts to encourage their fans and followers to self-isolate and practice social distancing in the coming days. From snuggling their fur babies to doing stand-up on their porches for the neighbors, here’s how your favorite celebrities are spending their time at home.

Ellen DeGeneres

The daytime talk show host has not been taping The Ellen DeGeneres Show amid the spread of coronavirus, so she attempted to do a puzzle. “I’m bored, I’m sure everybody’s bored,” DeGeneres started her video before diving into a 4,000-piece puzzle.

She has been posting updates to her Instagram and … let’s just say it’s gonna take her a while. First, she was missing a piece, then the piece was found under her table, then she had to sort out all of the puzzle pieces and finally, she realized that there is not enough room for her gigantic puzzle.

Ashley Tisdale

In case you forgot, Tisdale starred in Disney’s High School Musical, so it’s only natural that she broke out some of her dance moves during social distancing.

Gabrielle Union

The Union-Wade family is “riding this out” together.

Cara Delevingne & Margaret Qualley

The model posted a video with actress Margaret Qualley to Instagram, showing the pair doing a synchronized dance to “Kung Fu Fighting.” She also made a TikTok lip-syncing to Keeping Up with the Kardashians with her girlfriend, Ashley Benson.

Whatever it takes to make it through, to be honest!

It’s not the easiest for everyone right now but the kindest/healthiest thing we can do is self-quarantine and not hang out with people over 65 and in large groups. I wish I could see my parents and grandmas right now but it’s much safer to not so I don’t get them sick in case I have it. I’m hanging at home with my dogs. I love you world, we’ll all get through this. Trust me, I talked to God —she said we’re gonna be ok.”

Taylor Swift

The “Lover” singer is taking notes from her cat, Meredith, who sees “self quarantining” as “a way of life” and asked us all to “be like Meredith.”

Swift previously urged her followers to practice social distancing, telling fans on her Instagram Stories, “This is the time to cancel plans, actually truly isolate as much as you can, and don’t assume that because you don’t feel sick that you aren’t possibly passing something on to someone elderly or vulnerable to this. It’s a really scary time but we need to make social sacrifices right now.”
