This weekend, she took to Instagram with an update, "I am so thankful for my health, for the doctors, nurses, friends and family who got me through that time. You, online friends, also need to be thanked because your prayers and optimism were felt deeply.

After an initial assessment, she was moved to the ICU and placed under isolation. At that point, her care team moved forward with a test for Covid-19. The results were returned today, and it has been determined that Janet has tested positive for the virus."

Janet is said to be recovering in the hospital, and has said that she is already "through the worst of this."

She wrote, “Hey guys. A couple days ago, my doctor informed me that I too have COVID-19. A lot of us will. I am going to be completely fine. But many who get it won’t be if too many people get sick too quickly. So this is not me asking for prayers, for love, for sweet messages. This is me pleading for you all to protect those less able to survive this virus. Stay inside. Please. Whether you feel sick or not, stay inside. Think about your parents. Think about your grandparents. I love so many people who might have a very rough time getting through this. Think about someone else getting your loved ones sick because they didn’t listen, because they thought they knew better. Because they were selfish.”

Lawrence ended her post by urging her fans to isolate themselves and that "we all the power to slow this down."

A post shared by Daniel Dae Kim (@danieldaekim) on Mar 19, 2020 at 10:34am PDT

Daniel Dae Kim took to Instagram to inform his followers that he had been in New York working on a show when production was stopped after the coronavirus outbreak. Kim said he started feeling symptoms on his way back home to Hawaii.


His doctor had told him to monitor his symptoms and he had quarantined himself away from his family. Kim also said that the only time he left home was to go to the doctor to get medication and that while he's still not 100 percent, he's been feeling a lot better.

The actor then asked fans to practice social distancing. He said, “A lot of younger people can carry the virus without having any symptoms whatsoever. That was not me. I was sick. I still am, but thankfully for me it wasn’t a matter of life and death. For all those out there especially teenagers and millennials who think this is not serious, please know that it is. And if you treat this without care you are potentially endangering the lives of millions of people, including your loved ones. For the sake of everyone else please follow the guidelines: socially distance, self isolate, stop touching your face and of course, wash your hands.”

16. Football coach Sean Payton revealed that he tested positive.

Head coach of the New Orleans Saints, Sean Payton told ESPN that he tested positive for coronavirus and gave them the following message, "This is not just about social distancing. It's shutting down here for a week to two weeks. If people understand the curve, and understand the bump, we can easily work together as a country to reduce it. Take a minute to understand what the experts are saying. It's not complicated to do what they're asking of us. Just that type of small investment by every one of us will have a dramatic impact. I was fortunate to be in the minority, without the serious side effects that some have. I'm lucky. Younger people feel like they can handle this, but they can be a carrier to someone who can't handle it. So we all need to do our part. It's important for every one of us to do our part."


Louisiana has reportedly been one of the states where the virus is most prevalent, so Payton says, "The concern with Louisiana is the amount of people that come in and out of this area after Mardi Gras season. This is an area that doctors are concerned about. So our parents, and those that are more susceptible to this virus, deserve everyone doing their best to combat it. There are hundreds of people right now in tough predicaments, fighting for their lives. Let's be part of the solution, not the problem. We can easily help reduce the numbers of those impacted. We have to do our best to beat this, and I know we can."

Payton is currently resting at home.

I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10 days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only 4 days ago.”

She went on to say, “At this stage I would like to urge you all to practice self isolation and get tested if you have the signs I am feeling ok, like a normal flu and a mild fever, however we need to be sensible citizens at this time and think of all around us. We can get through this without panic only if we listen to the experts and our local, state and central government directives. Wishing everyone good health. Jai Hind!”

"After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive for Coronavirus," he wrote in the caption on his Instagram post. "As much as I felt like I could push through whatever I was feeling to do #WWHL from home, we’re putting a pin in that for now so I can focus on getting better. I want to thank all the medical professionals who are working tirelessly for all of us, and urge everybody to stay home and take care of themselves."

Underwood uploaded his video messages to both Twitter and Instagram, sharing just slightly different, though not conflicting, information in the captions on each platform.

On Twitter he wrote, "This virus doesn’t care how old or healthy you are. Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones and stay home. For those wondering what my symptoms are: headache, body aches, night sweats, fever, shortness of breath and a cough. Currently I get winded doing simple tasks like walking up the stairs getting out of bed."

And on Instagram, he added, "I tested positive and I have been following all of the social distancing rules since last week. My symptoms started a few days ago, I was tested and just received my results today. For anyone out there that is hesitant to self quarantine... please do yourself and your loved ones a favor and stay home. We will all beat this and come out stronger on the other side. I’ll keep you posted, Love y’all."

I figured maybe I got the flu or..Corona? I had had cocktails the evening prior, and smoked a few cigarettes. I figured I had jacked my immune system from having a fun night with friends. I found this kind of a CRAZY criteria for a NY’er as I had taken the subway, gone to the theater, the grocery store, the pharmacy, hair salon, etc. I was the Mom who was trying to prepare the home and get supplies & bleach wipes, dry goods. extra food etc. A friend told me that CityMD/Urgent Care in my neighborhood had test kits, which appealed to me as I wanted to stay away from the hospital. I went on 3/17. First I was tested for the flu-which was negative. Then they tested me for Covid-19. I was sent home and told to quarantine myself until I had results, which would take 3-7 days.”

By far the worst virus I have ever endured despite being a healthy individual with strong lungs(no smoking/sport), living a healthy lifestyle and being young (least at-risk demographic). Although the most severe symptoms (extreme fever) have eased, I am still struggling with serious fatigue and a residual cough that I can’t shake. Any physical activity like walking leaves me exhausted for hours.”

He went on to say, “The loss in body conditioning has been immense and can only feel for the athletes that contract Covid-19 as they will suffer a great loss of current conditioning through the last training cycle. Infection closer to [a] competition being the worst. Athletes will continue to train as there is no clarification re summer Games and thus are exposing themselves to unnecessary risk — and those that do contract will try rush back to training most likely enhancing/extending the damage/recovery time.”

Two+ weeks ago, everyone in my house had a bit of a cough and my son came home from school with a high fever. Everyone recovered, but I deteriorated. I isolated from my family and have been in solo quarantine since Saturday the 14th. I had a fever for 11 days, difficulty breathing and was diagnosed with pneumonia. I’m confident that I have finally turned the proverbial corner and am fever free today for the first time since this all started. I was told to stay isolated for another 72 hours before I acclimate back into my family. So, nice try coronavirus, but I have another 4-5 decades worth of experiences to have with these guys.

This is the one that's going to get it done. This one will make sure to get it done. They said that she went sideways and things had went sideways quick. And her lungs were extremely getting worse, and she was having trouble breathing and they were just explaining to me that she had to be put on a ventilator. And she was getting worse, and she was confused by everything, and I'm trying to talk to her about everything and encourage and stay positive, just talk through everything with her."

Towns said that his family is trying to remain positive and ended the video by stressing to fans to practice social distancing. "This disease needs to not be taken lightly. Please protect your families, your loved ones, your friends, yourself. Practice social distancing. Please don't be in places with a lot of people; it just heightens your chances of getting this disease, and this disease ... it's deadly. It's deadly.

Although I am fortunate enough to be cared for at home, this is possibly the worst illness I’ve ever had. For those of you who still do not believe the COVID-19 virus is real, or think it is a ‘hoax’ or part of some conspiracy, my advice to you is to understand right now that this is a deadly illness spreading like wildfire throughout the world. PLEASE make every attempt to stall the spread of this virus by: 1) staying home- the only way we can stop the spread right now is by self-quarantine 2) washing your hands as many times a day as you can and don’t touch your face and 3) follow the SCIENCE.”

Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive. My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative.”

She continued, writing, “It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible. This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities. In an effort to support the healthcare professionals who are battling on the frontlines every day, I am donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center. Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund. THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes!”

A post shared by Savannah Faith Chrisley (@savannahchrisley) on Apr 8, 2020 at 7:15pm PDT

The Chrisley Knows Best star and his wife opened up about his health diagnosis on a recent episode of their podcast, Chrisley Confessions. 

Chrisley said, "Can we talk about this b*ch called corona? I have been battling corona for 3 weeks. I was in the hospital for 4 and a half days, fever between 100 to 103 [degrees] and it has been the sickest I have ever been on this earth. Hopefully, I will get better every day, but as of right now, folks, I still am not clicking on all cylinders. I am probably about 70 to 75 percent of what I normally I am, but that last 25 percent is kicking my a*s."

His daughter, Savannah, also recently shared a message through Instagram about her father's stay at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She wrote, "I have never been so scared in my life. When dad started getting sick I immediately started worrying... he and I are the worriers of the bunch. After a couple days mom and I talked him into going to urgent care... he went in and he was showing all symptoms of COVID-19 so they tested him. So before people say... 'OH HE ONLY GOT TESTED BECAUSE HE'S A CELEBRITY...' u are WRONG! He went into an urgent care just like the rest of [you] would. After getting tested he went back home and stayed quarantined in his bedroom for 7 days and then his test came back... POSITIVE... when mom and I read that our hearts dropped."

She then went on to say that her mother took him to the emergency room. "When she got there they made her drop him off and leave because of all the strict guidelines. He stayed at Vanderbilt for 3 days and those were the hardest 3 days I think I've ever endured. I talk to my daddy 10x a day! He's my best friend... I also never go to bed a single night without a 'Goodnight and I love you' text.. and now my dad was sitting in a hospital room by himself and I had no idea how he was. At one point I fell on my hands and knees and begged God to not take him..to not take my best friend..I would give everything I had if it meant keeping my daddy. I was so desperate that I dropped photos of our family off at the hospital and said 'If he sees these I know he'll keep fighting!' So I guess the point of me telling u all this is so that u take it seriously...STAY HOME! SOCIAL DISTANCE! And most importantly..LOVE HARDER THAN EVER! Life is so short."

53. Bebe Winanas and his family have the virus.

The 57-year-old gospel singer opened up about his health in a radio interview recently. He revealed that he, his brother and mother have all contracted the virus. 

He said, "Sometimes, for some reason, we as a people, when we look in and we look at television and various things that's going on around us, we somehow say, that can't happen to me for some reason. I don't know why, but sometimes we believe that, and even myself being cautious, when the outbreak started, I did just a little travel. I was actually in New York and I was like, well, I'm going to Detroit because I had a friend pass and we were having a funeral and just that little travel, I caught it.”

He also opened up about his symptoms, saying, “I just started coughing out of nowhere. And, you know, you get concerned. And the fatigue came on, and the chills, and appetite went away.”

He called his doctor, but didn't go to the hospital because “if you're not in need of a respirator they won't even take you.” 

Winans also spoke about his family's symptoms. “My brother, now, got to the point where he had to go to the hospital ... A fever and pneumonia set in and so for four or five days, he was there,” He also said that his mother was also “touched by it for four or five days.” 

Luckily, he is now on the road to recovery. "I'm a man of faith and just raised in and in my mind, I'm just concrete in the subject matter that God is greater than everything. So, being on the other side of it now, I'm just grateful that the word — I just finished my run and through the whole run, I was just saying, 'God, I thank you. I thank you because it could have been a different outcome for me and my family.' Forget about homes and automobiles and all these things. You can't take none of that. That means nothing to you when your health is gone.”

54. George Stephanopoulos has tested positive.

The 59-year-old anchor's wife tested positive for the virus two weeks ago and now, Stephanopoulos has revealed his diagnosis as well. He announced it on GMA, saying that it wasn't really a surprise that he had tested positive.

The news anchor has been working from home for the past several weeks. 

More and more celebrities with coronavirus seem likely to appear.

Now that the virus seems to be spreading on a larger scale in the US, it's likely that more celebrities will test positively for COVID-19 in the upcoming days and weeks. It can definitely be a scary situation, but remember to wash your hands and stay away from large crowds if you are able. Our thoughts are with those suffering from the virus, and we wish them a speedy recovery.
