Jennifer Aydin, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, claims she tested positive for the coronavirus after her husband brought home the test results. Page Six picked up on a social media post from the reality star, whose husband is a doctor, in which she made her revelation.
Ever since she first started experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus, the reality star has been staying at home and away from her children. The reality star reported that she first started feeling sick this past week, including feelings of “extreme fatigue,” although, “no fever.”
As a precautionary measure, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star asked her husband, Bill, who happens to be a plastic surgeon, to bring her home a test which he did. The result of which proved she really did have the coronavirus, rather than just the regular flu.
Aydin stated on her social media account that her husband didn’t want to get her a test initially because he considered it a waste of resources, moreover, she wasn’t experiencing a fever or a dry cough so he thought she was in the clear.
However, to be on the safe side, he did get her a test and it came back positive, as it was noted above. A positive test or not, Aydin has been doing her part to help flatten the curve, including staying at home and also removing herself from her children.

I’ve been sick for the past 10 days and Monday is when my test came back positive. But today is the first day that I’m finally starting to feel better. Keeping my kids away has been the hardest and I’m grateful that I have no breathing issues. My days haven’t been so bad, aside from a lot of fatigue and sleeping. At night is when it’s the worst for me because of the mix of sweating and chills. I’m taking my vitamins and drinking hot liquids. We’ll all get through this. #staypositive #stayinside #covid19
