Two and a half years into the pandemic, COVID is still a highly contagious illness. Unfortunately, former GENERAL HOSPITAL star Emme Rylan (ex-Lulu) revealed that coronavirus has finally found its way to her household.
“I made it… How long has this been going on? I made it two years without catching COVID. Until now,” the fan favorite said in a video shared on her Instagram Stories on July 5. “Oh my goodness.”
Lying in bed in her video, a congested Rylan filled in her followers that not only was she ill, but fiancé Don Money and eldest son Jackson were also sick. “Don’t know where we got it. Jackson, me, and Don, we all have symptoms,” shared Rylan, joking that even though she leads a healthy lifestyle, she was hit the hardest among her family members by the virus. “I’m the worst one because I eat more vegetables than them and drink more water, and always get sicker. And work out more than them too. It’s so unfair!”
All jokes aside, Rylan did have a rough go of things over the past few days but seemed to have turned a corner. “We’re okay-ish. I basically am coming out of a three-day straight fever,” she confessed, adding with a sarcastic smirk that being sick was “super fun.”
Rylan isn’t the only GH alum to recently been infected with COVID-19. Emma Samms (ex-Holly) revealed in late June that she was recovering from a second bout of the virus. Samms contracted COVID for the first time during the early days of the pandemic in March 2020 and has been dealing with debilitating long-term effects of the virus ever since.
Thankfully, Samms seems to have bounced back quickly after her latest illness. Hopefully, Rylan and her guys won’t be down for the count much longer and will also be back to resuming their normal activities in no time!
