The actor went on to say that even as she adhered to all COVID-19 protocols, she went in for a second test later. “Since I hadn’t developed any symptoms whatsoever and neither had anyone that was in contact with me, just to be sure, before I announced it on social media, I tested again on the 30th of December and that report turned out to be negative. I continued to quarantine and to confirm this, I did another test on the 1st of January. As of today, I have now tested negative twice,” her note further read.
