"YOU MAY HAVE IT AND NOT KNOW IT...DON'T SPREAD THE DISEASE. STAY HOME AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. DO NOT GO OUT IN GROUPS. NO BARS, NO CLUBS, NO RESTAURANTS. WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN," the 'Let Me Love You' singer wrote in the caption.

"KEEP 6 FEET APART. ISOLATE YOURSELF IF YOU FEEL SICK. NOW IS THE TIME TO ENGAGE ON LINE AND NOT IN PERSON. IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT YOU, IT IS ABOUT US.....ALL OF US.... Love you guys," he added.
