Today on the noon news, Taylor Swift was promoting safe ways to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus. When researching for my book, Grounded, I found that celebrities did the same thing back in the 1550’s. Louis Armstrong promoted The March of Dimes, a group of women raising funds to assist in research and development of the polio vaccine. And in 1956, a young Elvis Presley was photographed getting vaccinated with the polio vaccine. People were encouraged to help out neighbours who were quarantined by dropping off groceries. Today we are also being encouraged to do the same for those who are in isolation due to quarantine or self-isolation. This is a perfect opportunity to show others we care.
