Many people, particularly children are finding it tough being separated from their grandparents during this challenging time.

With the over 70 age group being high risk, families are being told to practice social distancing in order to stop the spread of COVID-19, but as Amy Schumer, 38 proves you can still show you care.

In a video shared to Instagram, Amy and her son, Gene who she shares with husband, Chris Fischer, are standing on a street holding a handwritten sign that reads: “Hi Grandpa! We Love You!”

The I Feel Pretty actress captioned the video: “Visiting dad” and it shows her dad watching her from a window.

Amy has previously shared her dad has multiple sclerosis, telling talk show host, Barbara Walters in 2015 that he has lived with MS since she was 12.

“Some days he’s really good and he’s with it and we’re joking,” she said at the time. “And some days I go to visit my dad and it’s so painful. I can’t believe it.”

She added: “In terms of my dad being sick, it was just confusing to me, especially the way MS works. He was in physical pain. That’s when I kind of took the lead and took care of everybody in my family. I would keep them — I would keep everybody laughing.”
