The coronavirus pandemic infects everyone, no matter your social status or net worth.

Recently, a representative for the Oscar winner confirmed Tuesday that they were no longer hospitalized.
"Hey, folks. Good news: One week after testing positive, in self-isolation, the symptoms are much the same. No fever but the blahs. Folding the laundry and doing the dishes leads to a nap on the couch. Bad news: my wife has won 6 straight hands of Gin Rummy and now leads by 201 points,” he posted on social media Tuesday evening.
“We are all in this together. Flatten the curve," he wrote, promoting the idea of social distancing to prevent further spread of the disease.
