Johnson shared her diagnosis in a since-deleted Instagram Story post, revealing how she had just gotten her results back and she was admittedly nervous.
“Not going to lie…I’m nervous knowing I’m positive,” she wrote in the post.
“It’s been a long two weeks of RSV [Respiratory syncytial virus] with Drew and now this…my body is just exhausted.”
Johnson began to list off some of her initial concerns with contracting the novel virus.
“1: I don’t want to get my family sick. 2: I have asthma and have had it my entire life so this scares me a little extra,” she shared.
“3: had a very close family member fight for his life last month while battling Covid so it’s a serious topic of concern/hits home in our household.”
Johnson described her symptoms as a “cough, terrible sore throat, and headache” along with fatigue.
“That’s pregnancy,” she then quipped.
“Not looking for any kind of pitty party. Just a reminder to take care of yourself. Drink an extra water tonight and wash your hands.”
She concluded her message with: “Yours truly aka the quarantiner in the corner bedroom.”
