Women with powerful platforms are doing their part to spread awareness to fans about practicing restraint and safe behavior during the coronavirus pandemic.
Rita Wilson, who is quarantined with husband and fellow actor Tom Hanks after both revealed they contracted the virus while filming in Australia, even made a playlist — dubbed “Quarantunes” — with the help of her fans.
“Hi guys! I want to make a @Spotify playlist for people self quarantining. Something that might relate to isolation, perhaps? Can you send some song ideas that I can add?” She posted on Twitter, adding, “This is what one does in quarantine. U think of stuff like this.”
“I Want to Break Free” by Queen, “All By Myself” by Eric Carmen and “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor all made the cut.

I’m hanging at home with my dogs. I love you world, we’ll all get through this. Trust me, I talked to God —she said we’re gonna be ok.”

“Be kind. Help where you can. Support those at the front line of our societies.

Ignore the hate and ignorance. We’re in this together. #COVID19”

NO ONE needs every soup in the store,” she wrote on Twitter. “The more we hoard the more expensive and sparse necessities will become, leaving many without essentials.
