CrimeOnline’s Nancy Grace and her family have tested positive for the coronavirus, the Daily Mail reports.
Grace’s mother, 88-year-old Elizabeth Grace, has been hospitalized in the COVID-19 ward of an Atlanta hospital.
In fact, it was Elizabeth who came down with the disease first, getting a test last Friday after a few days of lethargy, coughing, and not wanting to eat.
When the test came back positive on Monday, Elizabeth went straight to the hospital.
Nancy, husband David Lynch, and twins John David and Lucy Elizabeth were tested and quarantined the same day, and their tests came back positive on Wednesday.
“Covid is no joke, we thought we had done everything right,” Nancy told the Daily Mail. “Please keep wearing masks, social distancing and stay safe – no family should go through this.”
Nancy said her mother is slowly improving.
“We’re praying for my mom that she returns home as soon as she can,” she said. “We’d like to thank the tremendous doctors and nurses who are taking such wonderful care of her.”
Nancy said that she and John David have lost their sense of smell, and that she has a cough and flu-like symptoms. Her husband has severe headaches. Other than John David’s loss of smell, the twins have mild symptoms, she said.
“David, the twins and I, will continue to isolate at home while we recover and we look forward to mom coming home as soon as we are all better,” she said.
