While some people are lucky enough to be able to work from home during this pandemic, there are many, many people out there who find themselves suddenly without a source of income.

Information about the coronavirus pandemic is rapidly changing and Diply is committed to providing the most recent data as it becomes available.

Families and people all over the world are struggling with the need to stay at home.

For many, staying at home means no more income or a dramatically cut income, which means that making rent for the next few months might be difficult or even impossible.

Kristen shared that Dax is currently self-isolating away from the rest of the family on Instagram, writing, "@daxshepard Got back from travelling on Monday. To be cautious, I asked him to stay at a friend's empty apartment for a bit to make sure he had no symptoms," which was definitely the smart move.
