Millions of people are currently in self-isolation.

But what exactly are the benefits of this self-isolation?The virus, which has so far infected over 200,000 people all over the world, is spread primarily through physical contact with others.
So, the best way to avoid further spreading the virus is to self-isolate.
via: GettyIf someone has contracted COVID-19 or has been in contact with someone who has, staying indoors and away from the general public will dramatically slow down the spread of the virus.
All around the world, cities have been brought into lockdown...And large, crowded events have been canceled.
And, here in the U.S...Several state governors have called for all bars and restaurants to be closed in an effort to slow the spread of the virus, which has so far infected 7,301 Americans.
Businesses in California, Ohio, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Washington have been affected...And have closed indefinitely until further notice.
So there isn't much left for us to do...

And for some of us, we are lucky enough to be able to bring our work home.
via: GettyIn another bid to prevent the spread of COVID-19, many businesses have been instructing their staff to work remotely, rather than come into the office. I, myself, write this from the warmth and coronavirus-free comfort of my bed. It could be a lot worse!
So far, most people have been loving working from home.

Though some have been getting a little more distracted than others...Attention-hungry pets are a recipe for disaster for some quarantined workers.
But this self-isolation isn't exclusive to just us regular folk...
via: GettyBecause many celebrities have been self-isolating too.
And some have had to work from home themselves.

After the studio production was shut down due to coronavirus concerns...

via: YouTubeIt was just as brilliant as we'd all imagined it to be.
Jimmy released the first episode of his "At Home" series on Tuesday...
via: YouTubeAnd, with the help of his wife, Nancy, their 6-year-old daughter, Franny, and their dog Gary, the host was able to put together a pretty decent make-shift studio... From a rather cluttered room in his house.
To open the unusual episode, Jimmy gave the low down on what was happening.
via: YouTube"Hi guys, this is Jimmy Fallon and this is The Tonight Show Home Edition... I guess you can call it. We really don't know what this is, but we wanted to put something out there for you guys, and just have some levity in these bizarre times."
He then introduced his off-camera helpers...
via: YouTube"My camera operator is my wife - Hi, honey, thank you for doing this. And we have my dog, Gary. My dog Gary is my first guest... Gary, sit." Franny then excitably runs into the shot, prompting Jimmy to ask her, "Franny, do you want to play the drums?" In which she replies, "No", making Jimmy sigh and exclaim, "Okay, perfect!"
It's all wonderfully chaotic.

Jimmy will be posting daily episodes from his house during the quarantine period...
via: YouTubeAnd his debut was dedicated to St. Patricks day, and included all sorts of Irish-themed fun. "I want to wish everyone a wonderful St. Patricks Day. Today is St. Paddy's Day!"
