Thierry Henry's COVID-19 message to fans: "Don't take it lightly"

Montreal Impact manager and former Arsenal and France star Thierry Henry took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to offer fans everywhere some simple advice regarding the evolving coronavirus health crisis. (The English portion of his message starts 36 seconds in.)

"Guys, stay away from parties, gatherings, mixing with people. If you have to be with people, keep your distances. Wash your hands and respect what's been said about it," Henry said. "Don't take it lightly."

Henry had a strong start to his first season in charge of the Impact before play was suspended, taking four points out of two league matches and progressing past Deportivo Saprissa to the Concacaf Champions League quarterfinals. Montreal's 2-1 loss to Olimpia in Leg 1 of that quarterfinal was Henry's only defeat in five matches in charge.
