With many around the globe isolating themselves at home due to Coronavirus, people are roaming Twitter for entertainment and advice. One user, @AdamLaceGarcia, decided to ask for guidance from the galaxy's king of self-isolating: Luke Skywalker. As Star Wars fans will recall, at the beginning of The Force Awakens viewers find out that Luke had been under self-imposed exile, supposedly for many years since Kylo Ren's slaughter of the Jedi.
At the end of the movie, Rey uses a map from R2-D2 to find him on the oceanic planet Ahch-To, where Luke was basically living in quarantine for a long time. It's not really explained how he kept himself entertained for that long, but we can only assume he had some crossword puzzles and the Porgs to keep him company. Twitter user @AdamLaceGarcia tweeted at Mark Hamill, who plays the Jedi in question: "Really would love some [self-isolation advice] from Luke Skywalker right now." Well, ask and ye shall receive. Mark Hamill's response was perfect.
"You know how there's all those places where people are? Don't be there," he said. Luke Skywalker couldn't have said it better himself.
As of right now, the World Health Organization is giving the public several key pieces of advice to avoid contacting the virus. These measures include staying aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, regularly and thoroughly clean your hands, maintain at least three feet of distance between yourself and anyone who seems ill, practice good hygiene, and seeking medical care immediately if you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Public places like restaurants are shutting their doors in an effort to slow the spread of Coronavirus, and nursing homes are restricting family visits to protect the elderly.
It seems like we should listen to the Jedi on this one! For people looking for something to watch, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was made available a few days early in most digital stores.
