Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Olympic hockey champion Hayley Wickenheiser, and actors Ryan Reynolds and Seth Rogen have come together in unison to promote the need of the hour: social & physical distancing and staying indoors.
These famous faces of Canada have joined forces to encourage all Canadians to help fight the novel coronavirus COVID-19 by staying indoors and maintaining larger physical distances in public areas, with an aim to #PlankTheCurve – a graph (depicting the alarming growth rate of reported positive cases) that looks to be growing steeper with each passing day.
Prime Minister Trudeau called on the Canadian populace to practice responsible behavior, via this video on Twitter:
You need to stay home. And so do your friends and family members. Help spread the word with your own video – and tag your friends to remind them to stay home too. And together, we can #PlankTheCurve. @MichaelBuble and @VancityReynolds – can you help? #StayAtHomeSaveLives pic.twitter.com/f1PQQrzMIK

In his usual light-hearted style, actor Ryan Reynolds promptly replied with a Tweet and a video of his own:
Another important message from an important celebrity. Let’s spread the word not the virus. I happily nominate, @stevenpage @Sethrogen and @TerryR49776917 #PlankTheCurve #StayAtHomeSaveLives pic.twitter.com/IRJNI9Y6G9

Olympic hockey champion Hayley Wickenheiser also shared a personal point of view via Twitter, seeing as she is currently in her final year of medical school.

Possibly due to early negligence on the gravitas of this serious situation, the infection has risen to the level of a global pandemic. From the team at Hashtag: Stay Safe, Stay Home, and help Canada #PlankTheCurve.
