In the update, she revealed that she suffered a loss of taste and smell.

“I’ve been trying really hard to do the whole perspective thing, but a few of my friends have been like, ‘Kaitlyn, it’s okay to be scared and to be upset and to be frustrated at this.’ And so today, I’m just allowing myself to be bummed out,” she said, adding she’s “a little bit depressed,” as well as “super anxious and scared” about how the virus will affect her in the long term.

“I’m worried if, like, what if my smell and taste never comes back? Then I get scared [of] what if tomorrow I wake up and I can’t breathe? What if the next day I’m not okay? I’m doing all these what-ifs and I’m spiraling, and I feel really, really anxious today. I hate when things are unpredictable, and COVID is definitely unpredictable,” she continued.

She added a more lighthearted video of herself using a device from CVS to steam Vicks VapoRub into her nose.

“This is not an ad — you do not get a discount code, but you do get a little bit of hope,” she joked.

All of these celebrities have also tested positive for coronavirus.

'DWTS' Winner Kaitlyn Bristowe Got COVID-19 After the One Person She Allowed Over Tested Positive

Kaitlyn Bristowe has a lesson to teach people about COVID-19… even allowing just one person you trust into your pod can bring the virus into your home.

The 35-year-old former Bachelorette star, who just won the latest season of Dancing With the Stars, has tested positive for coronavirus alongside her boyfriend Jason Tartick.

“Unfortunately, this is our Christmas card this year. We have Covid 😭,” Kaitlyn captioned the below selfie. “Jason and I had been trying to quarantine before seeing family. We thought we were making a responsible decision to have ONE person over, who had been tested daily for work. Negative tests 4 days in a row. The day we saw her, she became positive which we all found out the next day.”

Kaitlyn continued, “Now, like many, we will spend Christmas by ourselves. We just want to let everyone know that we thought we were being safe, but covid is bigger than us. Today, We are thinking of everyone who is spending the holidays alone, anyone who is sick or overcoming something, (as 2020 has taught us to overcome a lot), and all of the healthcare workers who have been away from family, taking care of others for months, and months now. We will be ok!! Be safe and happy holidays!!”

Jason added, “We had a responsible quarantine plan in place so that we could see my family for the holiday. Shame on us, we didn’t stick to the plan. We made an adult decision to allow a friend over during the quarantine time [because] for a project she was working on she was required to be tested and showed 4 negative tests in a row for her work. On her way home Sunday, her Saturday morning test result came in positive.”

“I had a good cry, didn’t somehow ruin my eyeliner. I honestly am so tired that anything will set me off right now, plus I am PMSing so great combo,” she said in a follow-up video on her Story.

“But I felt my feelings. I got it out, sometimes I like to be honest on here but not always be ‘woo, happy.’ I had a weak moment, cried it out, felt it all, now poured myself a glass of wine, and remember what’s important in life.”
