On Wednesday, Julian Edelman became the latest member of the New England Patriots to share a public service announcement regarding the importance of social distancing and staying home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Fake Boston accent and all, Edelman recited the following message to New Englanders;

“Boston. I know this is a crazy surreal time, something we have never really experienced in our lifetime. With spring coming up we’re so used to having Patriots Day, Marathon Monday, Opening Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Passover — all these crazy awesome events that we have to adjust to and we have to do differently because of the circumstances we are under,” he began. “But as Mayor Marty, my guy, Marty Walsh always says, Boston is a city built on comebacks.”

Take a listen to his full plea in the tweet below.

Edelman also highlighted the importance of these measures while thanking all those working on the frontlines during the pandemic.

“It’s a necessary thing,” Edelman said. “I honestly want to say thank you to the people who are putting their neck on the line out there. Medical pros, police departments, our fire departments, people that are delivering food, it’s crazy to see how we all are coming together to work together because of these circumstances, and we have to continue to do that.”

The PSA wrapped up with Edelman wearing a pair of gloves different from the ones he usually wears accompanied by a mask.

“Like they say…Stay healthy, stay safe, stay inside”, Edelman concluded.

The appreciation messages didn’t stop there, on Tuesday Edelman thanked more medical professionals with a special “World Health Day” video.

Well done all around Jules, well done.
