“I have just tested positive for Covid-19. I AM OK!” she wrote alongside a picture of herself. “About a month ago my entire home (husband and two teen daughters) got an odd bug-Low grade fever, headaches, sore throat, body aches, ears ringing and a dry cough. It cleared up quickly.”

Debi said  she believed the illness to be seasonal, but it felt “different.”

“Two weeks later, March 15th, I woke up with all those same symptoms but super intense body aches, and 102.4 fever. Did I figure maybe I got the flu or..Corona?” she wrote. “I had had cocktails the evening prior and smoked a few cigarettes. I figured I had jacked my immune system from having a fun night with friends.”

The actress detailed the difficulties she experienced in trying to get tested for the virus, explaining that she’d been denied a test because she hadn’t traveled out of the country and didn’t have contact with anyone that had tested positive despite phoning a friend in the medical field.

“I found this kind of CRAZY criteria for an NY’er as I had taken the subway, gone to the theater, the grocery store, the pharmacy, hair salon, etc. I was the Mom who was trying to prepare the home and get supplies & bleach wipes, dry goods, extra food etc,” she explained. “Because we have Italian family in Italy and we follow the news closely, my biggest panic was why were they not closing schools in NYC & forbidding movement outside the home without permission, like China and all of Europe?”

Also, she revealed eventually managed to get her hands on a test after two days of exhibiting symptoms.

“A friend told me that CityMD/Urgent Care in my neighborhood had test kits, which appealed to me as I wanted to stay away from the hospital. I went on 3/17,” she continued in the lengthy post. “First I was tested for the flu-which was negative. Then they tested me for Covid-19. I was sent home and told to quarantine myself until I had results, which would take 3-7 days (in S.Korea it takes two hours)”

On Saturday, March 21 she received the result

“I’m hoping I’ve been through the worst of it already. Its very ‘Morphy,'” she said. “One day I feel crappy and the next I’m normal. Today my lungs are heavy, but I’m tough. I can breathe, and I’m going to heal here, in my own home!”
