Jillian Michaels reveals she contracted COVID-19 ‘several weeks ago’ from her glam squad gal pal

The Biggest Loser alum Jillian Michaels revealed Tuesday that she contracted the coronavirus ‘several weeks ago’ from her glam squad gal pal.

‘I haven’t even spoken about this publicly really, and a very close friend of mine gave me COVID several weeks ago,’ the 46-year-old Daytime Emmy nominee told Fox Business host Liz Claman.

‘I literally get my guard down for an hour with one of my best friends who does my hair and makeup and got it. It’s just that simple. So if you’re not in a mask and that person is not in a mask, and they have COVID and have no idea.

‘Because, by the way, I had no idea that I had it for six days [and] my friend had no idea that she had it when she gave it to me.’

Jillian continued: ‘I’m fortunate to have gone into it being healthy and I was able to get on the other side of it pretty quick. But not everyone is that lucky, as we know.’

Michaels (born McKarus) discouraged people from exercising in gyms, even if pandemic restrictions have been lifted in your city.

‘Anticipate that you will likely get it in an environment like that,’ the LA fitness expert explained.
