The coronavirus is having a profound effect on Hollywood, with numerous films and TV shows having stopped production due to health concerns for cast and crew. The pandemic, unfortunately, hasn’t stopped there, as several high-profile celebrities have tested positive for CO-VID 19. Now, Frozen II’s Rachel Matthews has also contracted the virus, and she has a pretty clear message for her fans:
Matthews, who lent her voice to Honeymaren in Frozen II, revealed the news in an Instagram story and has been relatively candid about her diagnosis thus far. She later returned to her account to answer some of her followers’ questions and concerns:
Although dealing with something like this can’t be easy, Matthews understands that the best thing she can do right now is be proactive when it comes to keeping herself healthy:
There is an issue when it comes to the availability of coronavirus tests, a point that Matthews acknowledges. However, she still urges anyone to seek one if they're experiencing symptoms:
It sounds like Rachel Matthews has the right idea when it comes to combating the coronavirus, and she’s not the only celebrity who’s using social media to spread information about the disease. Tom Hanks has been providing regular updates on his health since he and wife Rita Wilson were diagnosed in Australia. The recently diagnosed Idris Elba has also been using his platform to keep the public informed.
Given the current state of the pandemic, the public would be wise to heed Rachel Matthews’ advice. It may be hard for some to remain in their homes, but there are things people can do to pass the time.
Coincidentally, Frozen II was released on Disney+ three months early due to the growing number of people self-isolating. This move has been generally well received, yet there are some parents who are already tired of hearing Elsa sing “Into the Unknown” for the tenth time.
