Mariah Carey and her kids are “staying home and keeping positive” in the midst of the Coronavirus, (COVID-19), pandemic.
On Friday, the singer took to Instagram to share a photo of her and her twins holding up a sign with the message ,”I #stayhomefor my loved ones, health care workers and the entire world.”
Mariah Carey and her kids are not the only celebrities that are encouraging people to stay at home. The challenge was started by Kevin Bacon in a video message from his own self-quarantine.

#IStayHomeFor @kikkosedg! Hey everybody, it’s now so important to stay home and keep our distance from others if you are able. It’s one way we can help prevent the spread of #Coronavirus and save lives. The more of us who can, make it safer for those who can’t. So if you’re home too like me, post a video or photo with a sign like mine, telling who you are staying home for and ask 6 friends to do the same. Post it with the hashtag #IStayHomeFor so I can see and share. The more folks involved, the merrier – We’re all connected by various degrees (Trust me, I know!) I’m kicking it off with @jimmyfallon @eltonjohn @Brandicarlile @kevinhart4real @ddlovato @davidbeckham – but I encourage YOU ALL to join in too! Let’s use this 6 Degree thing to do some good! . . . . #Corona #Coronavirus #StayHome #StaySafe #6Degrees #ThinkingOfYou #SpreadTheWord
Bacon held up a sign that read, “#IStayHomeFor Kyra Sedgwick”, his wife of 31 years. Then the Footloose star tagged six of his celebrity friends—Elton John, David Beckham, Jimmy Fallon, Kevin Hart, Demi Lovato, and Brandi Carlile—asking them all to join in on the quarantine fun by sharing who they’re staying home for, and by tagging six of their friends to keep the challenge going. And going it has!
Mariah Carey and kids got in on the action after being tagged by Stranger Things star Millie Bobbie Brown.
