Washington, D.C., residents may get a phone call from Michelle Obama reminding them to stay home during the coronavirus outbreak.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser recruited the former first lady to record robocall messages and radio ads asking Washington residents to stay at home to stop the spread of the virus. The campaign will also remind residents about free testing, The Hill reports. 

The calls and ads are scheduled to go out over the next two weeks, according to a news release from Bowser’s office. 

“Remember, we urge you to stay home except if you need essential health care, essential food or supplies or to go to your essential job,” Obama said in the recorded message. 

The mayor said in a statement that, “We are grateful to First Lady Obama for joining our effort to let residents know about free testing and for encouraging DC to stay home.”

Some people have already received the call from Obama. The Washington Post’s White House bureau chief Philip Rucker tweeted Wednesday morning he received the robocall.
