Ted Cruz and AOC Agree on the Best Piece of Advice During Coronavirus Chaos

This got our attention. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) are in full agreement on Twitter. The Wuhan coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. has plenty of people panicked, but one consistent piece of advice from physicians, health experts, and legislators is the urgent guideline to stay home. AOC tweeted that message out over the weekend, and it got her sparring partner's seal of approval.

Sen. Cruz grabbed her tweet and added, "Good advice — not just for NYC, but everywhere. If you can stay home, stay home. And wash your hands."

And the Twitterverse was stunned.

Good on Cruz and AOC for finding common ground during this alarming season. It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to practice social distancing in these next two weeks as the coronavirus continues to run its course and it's a good sign that #socialdistancingnow is one of the top trends on Twitter. Although some may prefer the similar trend, #StaytheFHome. Sen. Cruz took his own advice and has extended his self-quarantine after learning he came into contact with two people who had contracted the virus.

For more information on why keeping our distance right now is so imperative, you may want to read Medium's helpful piece on the subject, "Social Distancing: This Is Not a Snow Day."

Yet, as was made clear this weekend, many young people are not taking this bipartisan advice. Bars and restaurants, at least here in Washington, D.C., were still teeming with customers both Friday and Saturday nights.

Listen to AOC and Sen. Cruz. Please find a good book and stay home.
