20 to 39 years olds in British Columbia, Canada have seen a jump in COVID-19 cases in the last month.
B.C.'s own Ryan Reynolds is trying to help stem the tide. He shared a message on Twitter Friday to discourage gathering together in large groups.
He said, "I'm not sure it's a great idea, frankly. I don't think they want medical advice from guys like me, no sir. Unless it's plastic surgery; which - a lot of people don't know this - but I used to be Hugh Jackman. Young folks in B.C., they're partying, which is of course dangerous. They probably don't know that thousands of young people aren't just getting sick from coronavirus - they're also dying from it, too."
Reynolds continued, "It's terrible that it affects our most vulnerable. B.C., that's home to some of the coolest older people on Earth. My mom, she doesn't want to be cooped up in her apartment all day. She wants to be out there cruising Kitsilano Beach looking for some young 30-something Abercrombie burnout to go full Mrs. Robinson on. I hope young people in B.C. don't kill my mom frankly. Let's not kill anyone. I think that's reasonable."
