Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas decided to shorten their recent trip to India as a precaution after the coronavirus outbreak increased in severity.

Chopra told Vogue that she understood the gravity of the situation earlier than most after attending the World Economic Forum in January, hence the swift change of plans, “Nick and I made quick decisions about the most responsible things to do, and made sure our family was taken care of—we checked in on people, and explained what the coronavirus was. We were supposed to be in India for Holi, but we cut our trip short and came back to America because we were worried about borders being locked down. Nick is a Type 1 diabetic, so we felt it was important to go into quarantine almost immediately.”

The couple is spending the quarantine together at their home in Los Angeles, “I’m so grateful we’re together at this time, and that we weren’t stuck in different parts of the world because we both travel so much.”, she shared.
