“Guys, stay away from parties, gatherings, mixing with people,” said the French legend in an Instagram post. “If you have to be with people keep your distances. Wash your hands and respect what’s been said about it. don’t take it lightly.”
Henry joined Impact keeper Evan Bush, Montreal Canadiens forward Phillip Danault and others who are asking fans to self-isolate.
