Connie Britton talks recovering from COVID-19

Connie Britton took to her Instagram for the first time in a month, revealing she’s currently recovering from COVID-19.

The 54-year-old actress opened up with a lengthy post about her recovery process from COVID-19, including a photo of her with dog Merle. 

She revealed the hardest part of recovering was not being able to be close with her 10-year-old son Eyob, who she adopted in November 2011 after he was born in Ethiopia.

‘I just got over COVID. Usually I’m pretty private but I wanted to share a little bit of my experience with y’all, particularly if you’re a parent trying to manage keeping your little ones negative in the same house, or vice versa,’ she began. 

‘Because whooo that was not easy. When I tested positive I called my doctor in a panic and he broke it down for me. Masks. If you’re both masked and avoid face to face contact, that can keep the virus from spreading,’ she continued.

She admitted that, ‘avoiding face to face contact with your 10 year old is no easy feat (I can’t imagine if I had a real little!).’

She continued that she, ‘basically stayed in my room (here seen with Merle, who along with my other 2 dogs, was great company) and told Yoby the kitchen was off limits.’

‘Then I could go in there masked and prepare meals for both us which we’d eat in separate rooms,’ she continued.

‘Honestly the worst was not being able to hug or even make close eye contact with my son who has spent 1/5 of his life now upended from this pandemic,’ Britton said.

‘Kids, and all of us, have been living in fear of this thing for 2 years. And now mom has it!! And he might get it! So frightening,’ she admitted.

‘So many lives have been lost, families have been ravaged, so much fear and suffering and loss over this thing,’ she said. 

She said that she was fully, ‘vaccinated and boosted,’ and that her case was, ‘so mild,’ adding that, ‘if it wasn’t COVID I wouldn’t have missed a day of work.’

‘I was so grateful, having feared the damage, particularly to the lungs, that a bad case of COVID can do. This was the thing we’ve been running from in fear for 2 years,’ she continued.

She said that she does believe, ‘my vaccines made it more mild. And my son’s vaccines protected him and made it so he could go to school after an initial isolation as long as he was masked and remained negative, which was so much better for him than knocking around a house trying to avoid his mom like the literal plague!’

She pleaded with her 722K followers to, ‘Please do whatever you can to keep your immune system strong, stay masked, and get the vaccine. This is our job right now.’

‘And particularly do it for those who have to be out working and then go home and keep their kids safe. Let’s help each other be healthy and well.
