Two American actresses, whose popularity rose when they were teens in the early 2000s in shows like Lizzie McGuire and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, went on social media over the weekend to share that they tested positive for the COVID-19 virus despite already being fully vaccinated.
Thirty-three-year-old singer and actress Hilary Duff had just began shooting for the upcoming How I Met Your Mother sequel How I Met Your Father when her diagnosis came out. On her Instagram Stories last August 20, she shared all the various symptoms she was experiencing. She wrote, “ That delta … she’s a little bitch. symptoms: bad headache. No taste or smell. sinus pressure. Brain fog. Happy to be vaxxed,” followed by a peace-sign emoji. Hilary is a mother of three and is married to singer and songwriter Matthew Korma.
A day before Hilary’s post, 45-year-old Melissa Joan Hart shared through a video post her battle with the virus after experiencing difficulty breathing as her main symptom. In the video she cites her children’s exposure at school as the possible cause for her getting sick.
She shared, "One of my kids I think, has it so far. I'm praying that the other ones are okay. I think as a country we got a little lazy and I'm really mad that my kids didn't have to wear a mask at school. I'm pretty sure where this came from. I'm just scared and sad, and disappointed in myself and some of our leaders. I just wish I'd done better, so I'm asking you guys to do better. Protect your families. Protect your kids. It's not over yet. I hoped it was, but it's not, so stay vigilant and stay safe. I’m not posting this to be political or gain pity, I just want to share my journey. This isn't up for debate, it's just how I feel today on my page," she explained. Melissa is a mom of three is married to musician husband Mark Wilkerson.
