Matthew Broderick Gives Update on His Sister, Who Tested Positive for Coronavirus

Matthew Broderick is speaking out to give a status update on his sister Janet Broderick‘s health, two days after it was revealed that she tested positive for coronavirus.

The 57-year-old actor says that Janet is “on the road to a full recovery” after being admitted to the ICU this week for a “severe form of pneumonia.”

“My entire family is grateful for the concern about, and the well wishes for, my sister Janet,” Matthew said in a statement to Deadline. “I’m happy to say she is feeling much better and is on the road to a full recovery. We are all very appreciative for the wonderful care she received from the amazing doctors and nurses at Cedars Sinai.”

Janet is the rector of the All Saints Episcopal Church in Beverly Hills. The church believes that she contracted COVID-19 while attending a religious conference last month in Kentucky.

In a statement released by the church, Janet said, “Jesus has been so close to me the whole time and scriptures have upheld me. I so look forward to being together again in worship, to praying with you and singing a hymn.”
