Amidst the coronavirus outbreak, many famous faces are doing their bit to help and using their platform for good.
Today, it was announced that Elton John will be holding a coronavirus benefit concert to pay tribute to those working on the frontline of the pandemic.
Keep scrolling to see which famous faces will be joining him to sing from home and to find out when you can tune in to watch…
Nice cars, huge houses, and jealousy-induing vacations, to name a few.
But one thing that fame can’t provide you with?
Immunity from COVID-19.
Because, of course, no one is immune, right?
So, before we get into the benefit concert, let’s take a look at all the stars that have tested positive for coronavirus or self-isolating because of the outbreak.
The twenty-six-year-old Frozen 2 and Happy Death Day actress revealed she has been diagnosed with the virus.
“Hey guys, I tested positive for COVID-19 and have been in quarantine the last week,” she wrote on her Instagram.
“Unsure of what the next step is (been getting mixed info so will keep you posted) but obviously will remain in quarantine until told to do otherwise. I’m feeling better, but I will be posting some info that I hope will be helpful to some. Please feel free to reach out and ask me any questions.”
The Game of Thrones star took to Instagram to reveal he had tested positive for the virus.
“Greetings from Norway! Sorry to say that I, today, have tested positive for COVID19, Coronavirus. My family and I are self-isolating at home for as long as it takes. We are in good health – I only have mild symptoms of a cold,” he wrote.
The star tweeted his fans about his diagnosis.
The former bachelorette was tested for the virus after exhibiting all of the symptoms and is currently waiting on the results.
“Well. Here we are. 2 days ago we flew to Canada. I can admit when I’m wrong and I feel like I should have listened, but I didn’t want to live in fear and I also trusted production that everything was better in Canada (it is as of now) so because production wasn’t shutting down we left as advised. As the hours literally kept passing there were new rules, precautions etc to follow so my concern grew larger.
“As of today we shot our first and only scene. The Prime Minister put more restrictions on and the production did the absolute right thing by shutting us down. It’s safer for ALL THOSE THAT CAN to be home, and hunker down so we can stop the spread and keep our families and friends and people next to us healthy.”
The star appears to be working from home amid the medical crisis.
“Might have a new co-host this morning!”
“self(ie) quarantine. stay inside kids. one day at a time.”
“Delighted to hunker down with this crew… at least we’ll be laughing the entire time! #blessed#grateful #springbreak2020 #family Not today #coronavirus,” the writer, director, and actress wrote on Instagram.
“I love staying home … until someone tells me I have to ? Tell me something good … let’s stay positive ?? we’re in this together.”
“Heart and Soul. With clean hands. Over and over. For however long. X, SJ.”
“Self-isolation with tiny people is no joke. Only a few days in and we are quickly running out of activities. Today we challenged some friends to a fort building contest.”
The couple appear to be taking all the precautions.
“This is so unexpected, I, uh, I didn’t even have a speech prepared. Uh, but I would like to say this: SOCIAL DISTANCING is not something you can do all on your own. Many, many people contributed to my SOCIAL DISTANCING. Uh, I’d like to thank my parents for never giving me a ride to school, the L.A. city bus driver for taking a chance on an unknown kid, and, uh, last but not least, the wonderful crew at McDonalds for spending hours making those egg McMuffins TO GO, without which I might never be SOCIALLY DISTANT.”
“Hang in there everybody. Most soothing movie with the most gorgeous people. @michellepfeifferofficial and #georgeclooney. Sending love and light to you all.”
“Wash your hands, social distance, cough into your sleeve… and enjoy yourself. Happiness is good for your immune system.”
“Annnnd I’m already bored lol.”
“We are wishing you a peaceful Friday night and weekend. And even if you aren’t leaving your house, sometimes it’s fun to do a bold eyeliner.”

“So I talked to some doctors and scientists. It’s not the easiest for everyone right now but the kindest/healthiest thing we can do is self-quarantine and not hang out with people over 65 and in large groups.
“I wish I could see my parents and grandmas right now but it’s much safer to not so I don’t get them sick in case I have it. 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.”
Both Hanks and his wife tested positive for coronavirus. They have now been released from the hospital.
“Hello folks. @ritawilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else.
“There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx.”

“Staying in. Far preferred to going out.”
Short but sweet…
