TYLER, Texas (KETK) – Academy Award-winning actor and East Texas native Matthew McConaughey has recorded a PSA stressing the importance of social distancing and safety during the pandemic.

We are at war with a virus, and health care troops and first responders are on the front line fighting it every day. Let’s join the fight by staying home.

He goes on to say that staying behind closed doors is the “most brave and aggressive weapon we have against this enemy.”

The actor is hunkered down with his family in Austin.
