Jenner's sister Kylie Jenner has shared a number of messages with her own followers urging them to practice social distancing including a series of videos on her Instagram Story last week.
"Please stay inside, you guys," she said on Thursday. "Please say inside, practice social distancing, self-quarantine. If you live with your parents, you don't want to go home and get your parents sick. You might have it and not even know, infecting other people. The only way we're going to slow this down is if we do this because there's no cure right now. Nobody is immune to this, millennials are not immune to this."
"New evidence actually shows that a large percentage of people in the hospital right now are young adults," Jenner said. "I love you guys, we're gonna get through this together. We just have to listen to each other, respect each other, self-quarantine. I encourage other influencers to also speak out."
Kim Kardashian shared a similar message on March 18, tweeting, "PLEASE do not ignore the severity of the warnings to stay inside to stop the spread of this virus. We will all get through this! #TogetherApart."
In her previous message, the mom of four posted a throwback photo of herself and Kendall and shared that she and her sisters were "social distancing" in compliance with health experts' recommendations.
