Matthew McConaughey is keeping it real when it comes to social distancing with his family amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Stopping by to virtually chat during the Washington Redskins schedule release party on Thursday, McConaughey, 50, shared how life is for him during the current health crisis.

"We’re good man, we’re down here in Texas," he began. "We’ve got my Mom over here, she’s 88, I cannot keep up with her! I’ve got three kids, they’re redecorating rooms. I’m getting to know my pets better. I know where the water main line is on the property now, and I didn’t know it before."

He continued, "I know a whole lot more about my house and my family than I did two months ago!"

McConaughey and his family, including mom Kay, previously joined a Zoom call to play bingo with a few seniors in their home state of Texas.

The Enclave at Round Rock Senior Living posted a video of the call on Facebook last month, showing the moment McConaughey called out a chip that leads to two potential winners.

“We got I-24,” McConaughey read in the video before the whole family starts whooping in celebration when one player raises his board. “Richard is waving a hammer up high, we got Charles with the iPad up high. We got two winners!”

Along with spending time with his family, McConaughey is also taking action to help the front line heroes alongside his wife, Camila Alves McConaughey.

Partnering with Bethenny Frankel's disaster relief initiative BStrong, the couple has worked to ensure that first responders across the United States are getting masks and supplies they need to stay safe throughout this crisis.

“Matthew and I were able to get approximately 80,000 masks, and it’s a combination of surgical masks and KN95 masks that will be distributed between Austin and New Orleans, where they were getting hit pretty hard as well,” Camila previously told PEOPLE.

“It was important for us to make sure that here in Austin, not just the hospitals got them, but also the police department and the fire department as well. In this moment, we’ve got to find ways to help both sides because they’re all on the front line right now and we can’t afford to lose any of them.”
