In People magazine this week, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she contracted Covid-19, along with other members of her family, and she urges people to continue wearing masks and take other precautions against the virus.
She said she had “bizarre” symptoms, such as loss of taste and smell, which led her to conclude it was “unmistakable COVID caught me,” she told the magazine. “That day I finally tested positive — like millions of other Americans.”
“I strongly encourage everyone to use common sense to avoid spreading this and every other virus out there,” she said in her statement to the magazine. “There are more viruses than there are stars in the sky, meaning we’ll never avoid every source of illness or danger … But please be vigilant, don’t be frightened, and I advise reprioritizing some personal time and resources to ensure as healthy a lifestyle as you can create so when viruses do hit, you have at least some armor to fight it.”
