Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Shereé Whitfield revealed Tuesday in a social media post that she tested positive for COVID-19.

“I know I have been MIA,” Whitfield said in a video posted on Instagram. “I tested positive for COVID-19, so I’ve kind of just really been at home self-quarantining for the past week and a half. I just want you guys to know that it is no joke. I’m feeling much better today. Thank you to everybody who knew they had not heard from me and just reached out. If I have not reached out, I will. I just have been out of it.”

The reality star added that she plans to share more details later, and offered to answer any questions her followers might have about the virus and the symptoms.
