You know you should just stay home during the coronavirus outbreak when that's the message delivered straight from the heavens.

An Austrian pilot flying a Diamond DA40 Diamond Star (who clearly didn't heed his own advice) took to the skies just south of Vienna to deliver a potent message with his flight path: stay home.

The PSA took the pilot 24 minutes to complete. 

The message echoes the #stayhome hashtag that is trending on social media, as users encourage others to refrain from travel and to practice social distancing in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Even tourism agencies are hopping on the #stayhome blitz. Visit Estonia has created a campaign that says “Visit Estonia… Later. #stayhome.”
