#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

A post shared by Kevin Bacon (@kevinbacon) on

Who would’ve thought that Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon would one day come in handy for spreading awareness about a global pandemic? The 90s game is based on the concept of six degrees of separation – a theory stating that you are just six introductions away from any other person on the planet. For the uninitiated, it came into being after Kevin Bacon joked about having worked with almost everyone in Hollywood.

Today, the 61-year-old actor is using this very concept to draw attention to the importance of social distancing as the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic. In an initiative aimed at controlling the spread of the deadly virus, the actor took to Instagram to urge people to remain indoors through his #IStayHomeFor challenge, reminding his followers that we all have someone worth staying home for – someone who will benefit from us acting responsibly. Quick to accept the challenge were celebrities likes Ellen DeGeneres, Elton John, and David Beckham amongst others. Scroll to see who your favorites are staying home for.

Thank you for nominating me @kevinbacon to kick off your #IStayHomeFor movement! I think it’s a great idea and such an important message right now to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus. We are living in unprecedented times. I stay home for Catherine, Evangeline, Elijah, also yesterday I was gonna get to have a living room jam with Elton and Joni…but we all decided to make a tough decision and stay home. Missing them tonight. ❤️ Who are you staying home for? Please post your own #IStayHomeFor photo with a sign like mine and tag six of your friends asking them to do the same. My six nominations are: @theellenshow @dollyparton @harrystyles @#eddievedder @petesouza & @barackobama!

#IStayHomeFor my son, my family, my neighbors and YOU. We’re all being called on in different ways during this difficult time, and I also stay home for those who can’t. For those who will continue to care for us around the clock: our doctors, nurses, grocery clerks, overnight stockers, waste removal teams, doctors and scientists. I am feeling immense gratitude and appreciation for all of you and believe that we all need to do what we can to #flattenthecurve. Please during this time let’s treat each other with kindness; leave diapers and toilet paper on the shelves for others, help an elderly neighbor get groceries, support small businesses, call a friend who might be struggling right now. We need each other during times like these. Who are you all staying home for? ❤️ Thanks for nominating me @ddlovato! I challenge @theellenshow @lizakoshy @lizzobeeating @jayshetty

Thank you for nominating me @dakotafanning ❤️ #istayhomefor my Godfather, who is a senior and suffers from an autoimmune disease, and the entire senior citizen community. For those of you who can’t stay home, please take care of yourselves as best as possible. My thanks and gratitude also go out to everyone supporting us and saving our lives. ❤️ Many in the senior community are stuck alone in their homes or living facilities, so if you’d like to make a video or write a note sending your thoughts and making sure they know they aren’t forgotten, the @mptf will be sharing anything sent to Info@mptf.com with their residents. 🙏 I nominate @marinaruybarbosa , @zzward , @maiashibutani , @benbarnes , @chike1 , and @alessandraambrosio xoxo

PS- join me in posting your own version … (i nominate @tinashenow @arilennox @kehlani • @torikelly • @franciaraisa • @jinjootheguitargirl • @lidogotpix • @bayschuck
