#stayathome Hashtag in Different Languages

Posted On: March 31, 2020

As we are in quarantine or lockdown and some are using the hashtag stayathome (stay at home), I thought to post on Facebook to ask my friends to post this hash tag in different languages. So, this information is crowdsourced!! Apologize in advance for any mistakes as I am not fluent in any other language beside English (though I can read a little Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam…). 



How do you translate the #stayathome hashtag into different languages? 


See a list of some translations below:
