Now he’s turned his attention to Boston, where he has remained during the outbreak.

On Tuesday, Mayor Marty Walsh shared a video of Tatum asking everyone in the city to do their part to help put an end to the outbreak.

“Right now, we’re going through a really, really difficult time,” Tatum said. “First and foremost, I’d like to say thank to all the medical staff in Boston. Volunteers, food workers. Everybody on the front lines that’s giving up their well-being to help others that are in true need, to help us get through these tough times and help us get back to the things that we love.

“I think we should continue to follow the lead of Mayor Walsh and continue practicing social distancing, and staying home as much as we possibly can, so this can pass over and we can get through this together.”
