Stars across the country and around the world are quarantining and social distancing in a help to flatten the curve of the coronavirus outbreak! To help encourage others to do the same, Kevin Bacon started the #IStayHomeFor challenge, to allow others to share why they choose to self isolate and keep others safe. 

Bacon, of course, chose his wife of 31 years, Kyra Sedgwick, as his reason for staying home and urged others to take on the hashtag. 

"Hi folks, you know me. I'm technically only six degrees away from you," Bacon quipped in the Instagram clip, referencing the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game. "Right now, like people around the world, I'm staying home because it saves lives and it is the only way we're going to slow down the spread of this coronavirus. Because the contact that you make with someone who makes contact with someone else that may be what makes somebody's mom or grandpa or wife sick. Everyone of us has someone who's worth staying home for."

#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

Celebs have already taken to the challenge, with Demi Lovato posting a photo of her holding up the sign, "#IStayHomeFor my parents, my neighbors, my health." She challenged others like Miley Cyrus and Ashley Graham to follow suit. 

Former soccer pro David Beckham shared his own sign, noting he stays home for his wife, Victoria Beckham, and their four kids. 

"I’m staying at home for Victoria and our kids, including Cruzie who’s made his way into this photo 😂" he captioned the pic. "Let’s stop the coronavirus spread together ♥️"

Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown posted her own sign, writing, "I'm staying at home for these people because they are my everything♡ my beautiful nan, she protected me my whole life. now it's time for me to protect her. keep positive. xx."

Healthy carriers could be endangering or even causing the deaths of the most vulnerable: people 65 and up and people with underlying conditions. In order to help bring attention, I am joining the #IStayHomeFor campaign. #IStayHomeFor my grandmother, Mary Jane. Who do you stay home for? I nominate: @dakotafanning @nicholashoult @reedmorano @maxminghella @nicolekidman @naomiwatts And please let’s nominate MORE! We can only do this together. Thank you to all the COURAGEOUS healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, takeout/delivery employees, mail and package handlers and many others on the frontlines risking their safety and having to spend time away from their loved ones to protect our community. ❤️ You are our heros. #Corona #Coronavirus #IStayHomeFor #StaySafe #6Degrees #ThinkingOfYou #SpreadTheWord
