Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Join in on #IStayHomeFor Challenge to Curb Coronavirus Spread

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are the latest celebrities to join in on the viral #IStayHomeFor social media challenge to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The superstar, 50, and former MLB player, 44, were prompted to participate by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who tagged them on Twitter on Wednesday asking who they are staying home for amid the global health crisis after first sharing that he’s staying home to protect his mother, Matilda, himself.

In response, the engaged couple shared the same video to each of their Twitter accounts, which starts off with Lopez saying, “Hey everyone. We want you to please stay home to stop the spread of COVID-19. We’re staying home to protect those on the frontlines — the doctors, the nurses and technicians that are working so hard to save lives at our hospitals.”

Before the clip ends, Rodriguez adds that they are tagging The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon to join in on the challenge next to “help #StoptheSpread.”

In their individual captions for the video, Lopez and Rodriguez shared similar messages.

“Hi everyone,” Lopez wrote. “The best way to stop the spread of COVID-19 is to stay home. @Arod and #IStayHomeFor those on the front lines – the doctors, nurses and technicians that are working so hard to keep everyone safe. Thank you @NYGovCuomo for tagging us.”

Rodriguez, meanwhile, wrote, “@JLo & I want you to stay home to stop the spread of Covid-19. We are doing this to protect the real heroes, the doctors, nurses, technicians who are working so hard everyday to save lives. Thank you @NYGovCuomo. We nominate @jimmyfallon to tell us who you’re #StayingHome for.”
