      Heavy metal legend Rob Halford is doing his bit to help spread the news about being safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

      The 68-year-old frontman for Judas Priest, aka "the Metal God", released a video in which he gives instructions on how to avoid getting infected and how to engage in proper social distancing while staying connected.

      "Hello metal maniacs," says Halford by way of introduction. "Right. So, at times like this, this is when the metal community comes together, right?

      "We know what we've gotta do as far as keeping things clean, and it includes washing your hands as many times a day as is needed.

      "Try and be isolated. If you go out, don't buy everything. Don't be a toilet paper hoarder. Don't be a kitchen roll hoarder. Don't be a hoarder of any sort, because we're all in this together.

      "We have to keep each other safe. We have to do the isolating. We have to do the quarantining — whatever we need to do. This is serious, okay? But we're gonna get through it, because we've been through these problems, these situations before in history, and humanity has this great tenacity to pull together and to be strong and to overcome things that come before us.

      "So, look after each other, look after yourselves, your family, your friends, your loved ones," he added. "Stay in touch. That's an important thing. Text each other and Facebook, FaceTime, yeah--Instagram. All of it is incredibly important, you know, when there's a lot of fear floating around. This is when we really have to kind of look out for each other and do what's necessary and the right thing to do.

      "So, there you go. Those are my little words of advice.

      "I love you. Keep strong. Keep safe. Keep metal. Oh, yeah!"
