In a statement on Twitter on Thursday (June 23), Melissa said, “It has always been a dream of mine to be nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award and to bring my parents to the show. It was about to come true, until I tested positive for Covid yesterday afternoon. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to celebrate with everyone on Friday. I’ve cried lots of tears.”

“Thankfully, I’m asymptomatic. I’m super grateful no one in our home is sick. What a blessing,” Melissa continued. “To my Daytime community, have the best time. Wish I could be there but I’ll be watching from home and cheering on all of the nominees! Y&R bring home the gold! Love you all! And to everyone at CBS and Sony thank you for everything. So grateful to play Abby.”

“To my amazing parents, I’m so sorry that this weekend has fallen apart. I was so excited to attend the awards with you. This nomination was because you always believed in me. I love you. To everyone who’s cheered me on, sent me well wishes and love and support, it means more to me than you’ll ever know. I love Daytime and I’m honored to be a part of this talented group! Cheering from my couch!” she concluded.
