Regina King: I Try To Be Careful About Telling People To 'Stay Home' During COVID-19

Publish date:

Hollywood actress Regina King is trying her best to social distance, but she says that she tries to be careful not to tell people to "stay at home" during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Because at the end of the day, the reality is the reality. There's not going to be a vaccine anytime soon," King explained during Variety's Actors on Actors series. "We have to understand that while we're telling people, 'Stay home, stay home,' there are people out there who are not in financial situations that -- to say that to them is almost insulting, coming from certain messengers.

"So I try to be very careful about saying that too much, because I do understand that some people don't know where their next meal is going to be right now in this moment," King continued.

Several states are expecting to shut down again in the coming months as health experts warn that a second wave of the virus is on the way.
