Pop superstar Taylor Swift is urging all of her fans to take heed of all of the advice floating around about keeping away from large crowds -- asking that they "truly isolate' themselves.
"I love you guys so much and need to express my concern that things aren't being taken seriously enough right now," she wrote. "I'm seeing lots of get togethers and hangs and parties still happening. This is the time to cancel plans, actually truly isolate as much as you can, and don't assume that because you don't feel sick that you aren't possibly passing something on to someone elderly or vulnerable to this.
"It's a really scary time but we need to make social sacrifices right now," she concluded.
States across the country have shut down its nightlife. Bars, restaurants, and movie theaters have been closed as well as schools and some other non-essential places of business.
