In a video posted to her Instagram page, the Cuban-born hitmaker said she was infected despite following all protocols to a tee.  Gloria theorized that she could have been exposed by a fan who was not wearing a mask — while at dinner, the fan tapped her on the shoulder and got very close to her to talk.

“I was very lucky, but I just wanted to share with you that I was in quarantine, and one day I went out and met with one person who was not wearing a mask. I even held my breath through their talk, but something must have happened there,” she said. Luckily, she didn’t suffer too severely, and added, “Fear was my biggest problem. We’ve got to grab fear and shake it and just do whatever you can to keep your immune system as healthy as you can.”

I’ve immediately gone into self-isolation for ten days.”

“I’m gutted not to be able to race this weekend, but my priority is to follow the protocols and advice to protect others. I’m really lucky that I feel ok with only mild symptoms and will do my best to stay fit and healthy. Please look after yourself out there. You can never be too careful. These are worrying times for everyone and we need to make sure we are looking after ourselves and each other. Stay positive.”

So tomorrow I get to go in and see if I’m all clear. It’s been rough. I gotta say. It’s not easy being separated. I’ve been on the other side of the house. Lauren has been really sweet, she’s been keeping me fed. She just slides some food outside and I go get it. So that is the reason why we’ve been so absent.”

The player immediately entered self-quarantine,” the team said in a statement to the network. “Several additional players, coaches and staff who have been in close contact with the player received point of care tests this morning and all were negative for COVID-19,” they added.

Chris Christie

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, 59, took to Twitter on Oct. 3 to announce he has tested positive for COVID-19.

Donald & Melania Trump 

The very own president and First Lady of the United States, Donald Trump and Melania Trump, tested positive for the coronavirus on Oct. 1.

We will get through this TOGETHER!”

Melania also took to Twitter with her own announcement. “As too many Americans have done this year, @potus & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19. We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together.”

Even before receiving the positive test results, Donald and Melania planned to go into quarantine. This is because Trump’s top aide Hope Hicks was the first to test positive for the coronavirus after she and the president traveled to and from the first 2020 presidential debate together (which took place on Sept. 29).

Hope Hicks

Hope Hicks — who is a very close senior adviser to Donald Trump — tested positive for COVID-19, which Bloomberg News was the first to report “according to people familiar with the matter.” The senior adviser just traveled with Trump to and from his first presidential debate with Joe Biden, which took place on Sept. 29, via the Air Force One.

Hope reportedly “felt poorly” in Minnesota the day afterwards, where Trump was holding a rally, according to the report. On that day, she was seen walking to Trump’s Marine One helicopter with the president’s other advisers Jared Kushner, Stephen Miller, and Dan Scavino, according to ABC News. She was then “quarantined” on her “return flight” and received her positive test results for COVID-19 on Oct. 1, just two days after the presidential debate, Bloomberg News also reported.

Shortly after the report broke, Trump confirmed Hope’s diagnosis and revealed that both he and Melania Trump will be quarantining. “Hope Hicks, who has been working so hard without even taking a small break, has just tested positive for Covid 19. Terrible! The First Lady and I are waiting for our test results. In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!,” Trump tweeted on Oct. 1.

Jim Parsons

Jim revealed that both he and his husband, Todd Spiewak, 43, contracted COVID-19 earlier this year when he appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Sept. 28. ″Todd and I both had it early on. It was, like, middle of March,″ he told Jimmy Fallon during the interview, which can be seen below. ″We didn’t know what it was. We thought we had colds. And then it seemed less likely, and then finally we lost our sense of smell and taste.”

″It defied the descriptions for me,” he continued. “I didn’t realize how completely taste and smell could be gone,″ he continued of his symptoms. ″And when you’re in quarantine and there’s really nothing to do but eat, oh my God, that was brutal.”

Jim went on to confirm that both he and Todd, who were married in 2017, luckily recovered from the virus and have been quarantining in their home together.

Now 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. So for that, I’m thankful.”

She continued: “As far as my health, I’m doing well. My husband Bill and our son [Duke] also did test positive, but we’re all doing well and taking care of each other so I’m going to get back to doing that. But I just want to say I’m wishing you all the best and please protect yourselves and protect those around you. Take good care and I’ll see you on the next red carpet.”

Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka, along with their young twins Gideon and Harper (who were nine years old at the time), contracted the coronavirus at the beginning of the pandemic. Neil revealed the news months later during a Sept. 2020 episode of the Today show, explaining, “It happened very early [in the pandemic], like late March, early April. We were doing our best before, and I thought I had the flu, and I didn’t want to be paranoid about it.”

However, the How I Met Your Mother star knew something was wrong when he “lost [his] sense of taste and smell,” so the family “holed up” afterwards. They’re now doing “great,” Neil confirmed.

Jillian Michaels

Jillian Michaels revealed she contracted COVID-19 from a “very close friend” after letting her “guard down” during an interview on Fox Business, which aired on Sept. 8. “If you are afraid of COVID, you should not go to the gym. And I actually am a person who let my guard down, I haven’t even spoken about this publicly really, and a very close friend of mine gave me COVID several weeks ago,” the fitness expert admitted on television.

While she got “on the other side” of the virus “pretty quick,” The Biggest Loser host admitted that a public gym is “probably a place where you will get [the coronavirus].” She added, “I would love to tell you that’s not the case, but the reality is I literally get my guard down for an hour with one of my best friends who does my hair and makeup and got it. It’s just that simple.” Jillian clarified that her friend “had no idea” she had the virus, and even the workout guru herself was unaware she was carrying the virus for six days.

Reese, who is also a mom to sons Deacon Phillippe, 17, and Tennessee, 8, recently told actress Tracee Ellis Ross for Interview magazine that she shares a special bond with her three kids. “My gosh, I’ve been crying a lot this week. I’ll have memories of my kids when they were little, or I’ll remember my favorite English teacher from high school, and I’ll just burst into tears,” she said.

The Draper James designer continued, “That makes me want to cry, the idea of having a long relationship with adult children. I never expected the kind of relationship that I have with them, but it’s so rewarding to be able to have kids that you can process life with a little bit, and they help me understand the complexities of what it means to be a human now.”
