Positive: Actress Angela Kinsey has revealed that she’s tested positive for novel coronavirus, as her husband Joshua Snyder continues to battle the virus
Just over three hours before making the revelation, the Louisiana native disclosed in a lengthy video that she wasn’t feeling well, after isolating at home.
She said in the self-shot footage: ‘I showered, I blow-dried my hair, because I needed to feel like a human. I’m still congested… which you know, because i’m in a house with people who have Covid… I am going to get retested today.’
After whispering that the prospect of testing positive was ‘freaking [her] the f**k out’, the star continued: ‘I’m going to do a rapid test, because I’m just feeling a little off… Maybe I’m just rundown…’
Turning her attentions to her husband and family, she said: ‘Josh is feeling better, but he’s just really fatigued.

‘But he doesn’t have the nausea and the headache and the tightness. He just feels tired. He’ll have breakfast and then he kind of just needs to sit for a minute.
‘You guys that follow me know he’s super athletic and he works out a lot, and I think just not being able to do anything major is making him crazy. He’s feeling the limitations of being sick.
‘Kids are great. Kids, totally fine, bouncing off the walls. My mom is doing better, but they want to keep her in hospital a few more days just to really make sure and she’s so ready to go home and that’s hard.
‘So I just keep having the kids make her videos and I make her videos and thank goodness for smartphones… because we’re staying connected that way. But it’s hard knowing she’s there and she’s by herself.’

Angela and Days Of Our Lives actor Joshua, 43, recently celebrated their four-year wedding anniversary, having tired the knot in Topanga, California, in November 2016.
‘Our wedding was more than just two people coming together, it was a family coming together,’ Angela shared with Martha Stewart Weddings.
‘Josh and his sons and my daughter and I. We were so proud of our children. They each wrote something to say during the ceremony,’ she added.
She has daughter Isabel Ruby Lieberstein, aged 12, with Warren Lieberstein, who she was married to from 2000 until 2010.

Angela said: ‘They wanted us to know how much it means to them that we were becoming a family. It was truly moving. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room!’
Angela confirmed her engagement in August of that year, recalling of the proposal: ‘We were going out to dinner and my daughter said that first she wanted to show me the fort in the backyard that she and my boyfriend’s sons had been working on.
‘She led me outside and there was a blanket by the pool and she said I had to sit on it. His sons brought me flowers and then he came around the corner with a ring.’
Angela, who co-hosts the Office Ladies podcast with Jenna Fischer, added: ‘He had called my mom and asked for her blessing… that would have made my dad so happy.
‘He proposed and I said yes. The ring is an emerald… all three of our kids’ birthstone. The kids made me cards and pictures and I cried. I cried that happy ugly cry.’
Mother: The star also revealed that her mother remained in hospital as she battled the virus
