Meghan King has revealed that she has tested positive for Coronavirus.

The 36-year-old former Real Housewives of Orange County star took to her Instagram Story on Sunday (November 15) to share with fans that she is currently battling the virus.

“I tested positive for Covid. I have been safe while traveling but I had an exchange on Tuesday where I did not protect myself and this is when I had to have been infected,” Meghan wrote. “I have been safe with distancing and masks since Tuesday including when I went to dinner solo and stayed distant and wore a mask to Hayes’s soccer [game].”

If you didn’t know, Meghan shares her three kids – daughter Aspen, 3, and twin sons Hart and Hayes, 2 – with ex husband Jim Edmonds.

“My kids have been at their father’s but Hayes will quarantine due to brief (1 hour) proximity to me,” Meghan continued. “I have contacted everyone and will isolate for 10 days minimum per CDC guidelines. My children will have to stay with my parents as they cannot stay at my house while I’m sick.”

In another post, Meghan revealed some of the symptoms she’s experiencing.

“I am feeling poorly but I am ok. I went in to be tested mainly due to extreme lethargy, but I just knew I was positive,” Meghan said. “I don’t have a fever. I do have extreme exhaustion, sneezing, a mild cough, and diarrhea. I think I’m my sense of smell. I ordered a regiment of vitamins and getting tons of rest, water, and food delivery. None of my friends of family are infected or have symptoms.”

We hope Meghan King gets well soon!
