A COVID-19 Checklist of 25 Elderly Celebrities Bob Barker Lives!

You know how you can mark yourself "safe" from emergencies on Facebook? Well, we need to get our oldest celebrities hooked up to something like that for the coronavirus.

This week, we heard that 98-year-old BETTY WHITE is happy, healthy, and quarantining at home in L.A. 

Now, someone has checked on 96-year-old BOB BARKER. TMZ says he's also quarantining at home in L.A., and that since his immune system is pretty banged up, he was actually socially-isolating PRIOR to COVID-19.

Sources say his family was already keeping people with colds from getting close to him . . . but things have been ramped up due to the outbreak, and now, NO ONE is allowed over to the house aside from those in quarantine with him.

Bob is experiencing one main difference: Normally, he'd be watching sports at home, but since there aren't any sports happening, he's been watching a lot of old war movies.

A couple weeks ago, 93-year-old Mel Brooks did an amusing social distancing video with his son Max, so he seems to be doing okay too. So, now we're thinking . . . what other old celebrities should we be keeping an eye on?
