Listen to your captain: Jonathan Toews reminds everyone to stay home

Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews is showing off his leadership skills during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today, Toews appeared on the Blackhawks’ Instagram to remind fans of the importance of social distancing as part of the "We Are Not Playing" movement.

Toews has been doing his part to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic by staying home, as well as donating $100,000 to the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund through the Jonathan Toews Foundation. 

Patrick Kane has decided to join Toews to encourage fans to practice social distancing. Kane posted a video to Twitter for Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzger’s All In Illinois campaign, thanking healthcare workers and reminding Illinois residents to do their part and stay inside.
