Katie previously shared a clip of quarantined citizens in Italy, singing music in unison from their apartment windows due to the lockdown enforced in the country.

This came after states and communities around the U.S. enforced drastic measures to reduce contact between people. In Donny's caption, he insisted that it was essential for humans to partake in brain-stimulating activities during this unprecedented crisis. He said:

"Despite being physically distanced, let's all commit to looking out for those around us, especially those who are at higher risk or without help. We will all get through this together."
