“I was working on a movie, and someone in the movie contracted coronavirus,” Haddish told Fauci, per People. “I was not in direct contact with them, but they sent all of us home; we stopped the movie. They suggested I go get tested. I got tested, got the results back two days later. They said I didn’t have the coronavirus.”
Then she found out another person she knew contracted the coronavirus. “Get the tests the second time. I’m not feeling any symptoms or anything, and it comes back like two days later, and they said I did have the coronavirus,” she said. “Then I went and tested again, didn’t have the virus, and then I got tested for antibodies, they said I had antibodies. That was three months ago, I’ve been tested 12 times now because I’ve been working and everything.”
Haddish added that she got tested one more time for the virus and the antibodies and came up negative for both. “So I think I’m superhuman.”
The fitness trainer says she contracted COVID-19 from a close friend. “I would love to tell you that’s not the case, but the reality is I literally [let] my guard down for an hour with one of my best friends who does my hair and makeup and got it,” she told Fox News during an interview. “It’s just that simple.
“If you’re not in a mask and that person is not in a mask, and they have COVID and have no idea—because, by the way, I had no idea that I had it for six days [and] my friend had no idea that she had it when she gave it to me—anticipate that you will likely get it in an environment like that,” she continued, warning against going to a public gym to work out.
Vivica A. Fox
Fox was forced to bow out of cohosting Live From the Red Carpet: The 2020 Emmy Awards pre-show special after testing positive for COVID-19. “I am terribly sorry I cannot be with my E! family tonight! Unfortunately, I have tested positive for coronavirus. So, in an abundance of caution, I am isolating myself at home,” Fox said in a statement, per BET. “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.”
Fox isn’t the only one. “As I go into my 20th year on the E! red carpet I have to say I do not take missing an award show lightly, but unfortunately this year is just so different,” she revealed during the stream, per the Hollywood Reporter. She found out she was positive due to E!’s “very strict testing guidelines.”
