Meghan King Tests Positive For Coronavirus; Says “I Am Feeling Poorly But I Am Ok”

Meghan King has tested positive for the coronavirus. The former Real Housewives of Orange County alum revealed on Sunday that she was self-isolating after getting back a positive COVID-19 test, according to PEOPLE.

"I tested positive for COVID. I have been safe while traveling but I had an exchange on Tuesday where I did not protect myself and this is when I had been infected. I have been safe with distancing and masks since Tuesday, including when I went to dinner solo and stayed distant and wore a mask at Hayes's soccer," she shared on her Instagram Story.

"My kids have been at their father's but Hayes will quarantine due to a brief (1 hour) proximity to me," King added. "I have contacted everyone and will isolate for 10 days minimum per CDC guidelines. My children will have to stay with my parents as they cannot stay at my house while I'm sick."

The former Bravo reality star then gave fans an update on how she's feeling. "I am feeling poorly but I am ok. I went in to be tested mainly due to extreme lethargy, but I just knew I was positive," she explained. "I don't have a fever. I do have extreme exhaustion, sneezing, a mild cough, and diarrhea. I think I'm losing my sense of smell. I ordered a regimen of vitamins and getting tons of rest, water, and food delivery. None of my friends or family are infected or have any symptoms."

The mom of three went on to explain that she originally thought she has a cold, but that the extreme fatigue made her think it could be COVID-19.

"I have been under immense amounts of stress recently and I knew my immune system was low bc of that. So despite having been directly exposed multiple times, this was the time that got me," she said.

She added, "Going to take a nap now. Updates to come."

King also clarified that she was still feeling healthy when she went out to dinner and to her son's soccer game and did not know she had been exposed.

"I did stay at home! Let me make myself very, very clear. The millisecond I thought I could have something other than a cold I went and got tested. I would NEVER go out in public whilst even believing in the slightest I could have Covid," she wrote. "But even when I believed I was healthy I still social distances and wore masks while in public (unless I was with my bubble). I believe I caught ut at the very beginning before normal symptoms developed. I don't even have a fever."

King is mom to 2-year-old twins Hart and Hayes as well as 3-year-old daughter Aspen. She shares her three children with ex-husband Jim Edmonds, who tested positive for the virus in April.
