Anna Camp is begging everyone to wear masks after she said she recently contracted coronavirus after a one-time case where she was not wearing a mask.
“I felt it was my responsibility to share that I ended up having Covid-19,” the camp, 37, began in a long note shared on his Instagram Tuesday. “I have since tested negative, but have been extremely ill for over three weeks and still have persistent symptoms.”
The “Pitch Perfect” actress said that since the start of the pandemic, she has remained “incredibly safe, wearing a mask while being aware of the use of hand sanitizer.
