As much as I didn’t want to hear that, I’m very thankful I heard it before I traveled and possibly could have exposed other people. As far as my health, I’m doing well.”
She also disclosed that her husband and son also tested positive for the the virus and are “taking care of each other” in quarantine. I’m wishing you all the best. Please protect yourselves and protect those around you. Take good care, and I’ll see you on the next red carpet,” she added.

Unfortunately I have tested positive for (COVID-19), so in an abundance of caution, I’ve isolated myself at home. During these unprecedented times, it’s more important than ever that we follow all safety and health rules and guidelines to protect ourselves and each other. … I look forward to seeing everyone again soon.”
