“For all the young people in the city of Austin as well as all the students of the University of Texas, the virus appeared and you were asked to grow up earlier than you thought. You had responsibilities on your lap that you hadn’t negotiated, “said McConaughey, wearing a burnt orange leather jacket and white shirt, in the video.
He continued: “You just left for the spring break, you came back with a tan, you feel good. What’s wrong? Don’t blame any of it. But no matter how good you feel right now, stay home if you can. ”
He also provided the voiceover for a home public service announcement by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
Other stars have also urged fans to stay home, including Lady Gaga, who told her fans to stay safe while announcing the delayed release of her sixth album “Chromatica”.
“First, I want to make sure everyone stays safe and practices social distancing,” said Gaga. “Please know that I am thinking of all of you. “
