Both Matthew and Camila were also taking protective measures by wearing a mask amid the easy spread of the deadly virus. 
The Dallas Buyers Club star has continued to speak up regarding taking protective measures throughout lockdown around the country. 
'Science is behind us right now and the mask is about letting science catch up' he told CNN earlier in the month. 
'It's about helping the people on the frontline, don't let happen what happened in New York where there's two patients for every bed, we've got to buy time.'
He continued: 'A mask is a very good tool for that and I have not heard any science saying that it's not so I don't even know how there's any real argument about wearing a mask or not.'

Matthew also has also hosted an online bingo night for seniors and spoke in the virtual 2020 graduation celebration over the past few weeks. 
The actor also sent a message out to fans very early on during the pandemic, reminding people that we will get out of the mess. 
'Hey everybody, McConaughey here, just want to say that in these crazy times that we're in with the coronavirus, let's take care of ourselves and each other,' he said in a video back in March. 
'Let's not go to the lowest common denominator and get paranoid. Let's do our due diligence, take the precautions we need to take care of ourselves and those of us around us.' 
He continued: 'So, in this time when people are going to move on, the economy is going to be in shambles for who knows how long, there is a green light on the other side of this red light that we're in right now.'

'I believe that green light is going to be built upon the values that we can enact right now. Values of fairness, kindness, accountability, resilience, respect, courage.' 
'If we practice those things right now, when we get out of this, this virus, this time might be the one time that brings us all together and unifies us like we have not been in a long time.' 
The father-of-three ended his spiel with: 'So, yes, let's see if we can make some lemonade out of this lemon that we're living in the middle of. Turn a red light into a green light and just keep living.'
There have been over 1.66 million confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States alone. The country is now nearing 100,000 deaths.
