Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus self-quarantines with family: “We are doing our part to slow the spread”

Mark Hoppus and his family are self-quarantining amid the COVID-19 coronavirus.

“My family and I are hunkered down in our house for the next week,” the Blink-182 bassist/vocalist tweeted Sunday. “We are self-quarantining and canceled all people coming to the house, all meetings and events. No one in, no one out.”

Hoppus added that he, his wife Skye and their son Jack are already starting to get a bit stir crazy — “It has been one day and already we’re at each other’s throats and gone to separate rooms,” he says — but the important thing is that they are all “thankfully healthy.”

“There are people we’ve never met who would not be able to fight the virus, so we are doing our part to slow the spread,” Hoppus wrote. “The best possible outcome is that nothing happens, which will seem like we vastly overreacted, which is paradoxical, but necessary. Do the best you can, and take care of each other.”
