Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield has tested positive for COVID-19.

On Tuesday (July 14), the reality TV star took to Instagram to break the news to her fans. The video announcing her coronavirus diagnosis was the first thing that Whitfield shared on Instagram since July 3.

“Hey, guys. Just checking in. I know I have been MIA. I tested positive for COVID-19, and so I’ve just really been at home self-quarantining for the past week and a half,” Whitfield said in the short video.

“And I just want you guys to know that it is no joke. I’m feeling much better today. Thank you to everyone who knew that they haven’t heard back from me and just reached out.”

“If I have not reached back out, I will. I just have been out of it,” the former RHOA star said, reassuring her friends and loved ones that she’d get back to them eventually.

“I’ll post something after this if anybody has any questions or would like to know what my symptoms were,” she concluded.
