One of the crucial safety measures to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, as suggested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is to stay at home and social distance yourself from others, especially those who are sick.
Many Latin music artists have taken matters into their own hands and canceled or postponed their upcoming events and are following the protective quarantine guidelines. While some have gone back home to be with family, such as CNCO’s Joel Pimentel in Los Angeles, others are spending their time at home with their significant other.

He drives me nuts sometimes, but has a heart of gold. He means well, and wants the best for everyone. He’s not greedy, envious or vengeful, which makes me feel peace in my heart, and is exactly what I need, especially in times like these. He’s a nerd! …he knows a little bit about everything, and he if doesn’t you better believe the next time you ask him he will be well informed! lol (I know all about geography because of him! Haha) He’s funny, he’s a good dancer, not to mention an amazing singer … and well um, he’s the life of the party anywhere he goes! ♀️ lol … anyways, what I’m basically saying is, this is my quarantine partner, and I’m so glad and thankful to God he chose him to be with me in this very moment.
