Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are doing their part to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
In a video message shared with Underwood’s 9.5 million followers, the couple sit on their couch and urge Tennessee residents to stay inside.
“To help the health of our community, we’re asking everyone to stay at home as much as possible and practise social distancing,” says the retired NHL player.

Underwood adds: “Working together, we can stop the spread of COVID-19.”
The couple, who tied the knot in 2010, finish the video in unison, saying, “Do your part, stay apart.”
The video was part of the #TNStayApart social media campaign, which encourages citizens to stay at home and only leave for essentials.
Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are asked to self-isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others.
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
