“Right now like people around the world I'm staying home because it saves lives and it is the only way we are 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 mum or grandpa or wife sick," Bacon said.
“Every one of us has someone who is worth staying home for and I am staying home for Kyra Sedgwick."
