Chris’ COVID-19 campaign
On Wednesday, Cuomo launched the new #IStayHomeFor campaign on his show. The aim of the initiative is to encourage people to advocate for social distancing by sharing a photo of someone they love.
Social distancing for their mother
The person also has to be someone who is at a high-risk for contracting COVID-19. Cuomo shared that he was staying at home for his mother, Matilda, while his brother, Andrew, 62, also agreed with the statement.

The television host confessed that the whole campaign was actually dedicated to Matilda. Both brothers took to social media where they shared images showing them with their mother.
