"We are doing our part to slow the spread," the rock musician tweeted.

Mark Hoppus isn't taking any chances with his family's health during the coronavirus scare.

On Sunday (March 15), the Blink-182 co-founder tweeted that he and his family are taking extra precautions to stay healthy by self-quarantining inside their home.

"My family and I are hunkered down in our house for the next week," Hoppus tweeted. "We are self-quarantining and canceled all people coming to the house, all meetings and events. No one in, no one out. We have another family that we're friends with who are doing the same."

The rock musician also noted that his family has enough food and supplies to last the week, and added that if they're not showing any symptoms of the virus, they will begin seeing family and friends again.

"We are doing our part to slow the spread," he tweeted. "The best possible outcome is that nothing happens, which will seem like we vastly overreacted, which is paradoxical, but necessary."

On Saturday, President Trump declared a national state of emergency in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
