Tennis star Serena Williams announced that she is “spending the next 6 weeks in solitude” amid the coronavirus pandemic that has infected over 150,000 worldwide.

“Spending the next 6 weeks in solitude. Being a wife. Being a mom. Cooking. Cleaning. Spring cleaning. Face mask. Makeup tutorials. I’ll let you know how it goes.... stay safe everyone. This is serious,” Williams shared Friday on Instagram alongside a video of a makeup brush being applied to her face.

Williams, who is married to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and mother to their 2-year-old daughter Olympia, did not specifically mention coronavirus in her post.

The Women’s Tennis Association announced the cancelation of the Miami Open and the Volco Car Open in Charleston, S.C., amid the pandemic, CBS Sports reported, in addition to two international tournaments. The Association of Tennis Professionals announced that they will be suspending all play for six weeks.

Multiple NBA players have tested positive for the virus, including the Utah Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell as well as his teammate Rudy Gobert. The NHL has also suspended its season, alongside the NBA and multiple soccer leagues across the globe. The NCAA has also canceled March Madness.
