Kaitlyn Bristowe has a lesson to teach people about COVID-19… even allowing just one person you trust into your pod can bring the virus into your home.
The 35-year-old former Bachelorette star, who just won the latest season of Dancing With the Stars, has tested positive for coronavirus alongside her boyfriend Jason Tartick.
“Unfortunately, this is our Christmas card this year. We have Covid 😭,” Kaitlyn captioned the below selfie. “Jason and I had been trying to quarantine before seeing family. We thought we were making a responsible decision to have ONE person over, who had been tested daily for work. Negative tests 4 days in a row. The day we saw her, she became positive which we all found out the next day.”
Kaitlyn continued, “Now, like many, we will spend Christmas by ourselves. We just want to let everyone know that we thought we were being safe, but covid is bigger than us. Today, We are thinking of everyone who is spending the holidays alone, anyone who is sick or overcoming something, (as 2020 has taught us to overcome a lot), and all of the healthcare workers who have been away from family, taking care of others for months, and months now. We will be ok!! Be safe and happy holidays!!”
Jason added, “We had a responsible quarantine plan in place so that we could see my family for the holiday. Shame on us, we didn’t stick to the plan. We made an adult decision to allow a friend over during the quarantine time [because] for a project she was working on she was required to be tested and showed 4 negative tests in a row for her work. On her way home Sunday, her Saturday morning test result came in positive.”
