WINFREY'S CONTRIBUTIONS

Last week, Oprah announced that she put out a whopping $10 million towards helping Americans in these trying times. After witnessing how small organizations were pulling their weight in assisting citizens, the public figure knew she had to contribute her quota.

From her donation, $1 million will go into food banks as the food reserve has been affected following the outbreak of the Coronavirus. Other stars like Rihanna and Dolly Parton have also done their bit in boosting the provision of food for Americans.

SELF-QUARANTINE IN OPRAH'S HOME

As tentative, the OWN founder is sticking to the safety rules and embracing social distancing. Recently, the "Selma" star got reunited with her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, who had to stay away for a while.

It happened that Winfrey wasn't willing to take chances on health issues; hence, she and Graham agreed he'll self-isolate for a while, in their guest house. This was because the businessman had been traveling around before adhering to the quarantine rules.
