Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Confirms He and His Family Tested Positive for COVID-19

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has recently spoken about him and his family having contracted COVID-19.

Trying Times

Johnson says that he, his wife, and two daughters caught the virus despite being “disciplined” about taking coronavirus precautions.

So, receiving the positive tests was “a kick in the gut” for him.

The actor posted a video on his Instagram explaining that he and his wife Lauren, 35, and their daughters Jasmine and Tiana, aged four and two, contracted the virus about two-and-a-half weeks ago.

The actor explained that his daughters experienced “a little sore throat” but no other symptoms, but that he and wife Lauren Hashian had a “rough go.”

“I can tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family,” the former WWE star said in the video.

“And for me personally too, as well. And I’ve gone through some doozies in the past… but testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries, or being evicted, or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times.”

Message to Fans

The Jumanji star said that they caught the virus from “very close family friends” who, in turn, had no idea how they had been infected.

That’s why the Rock urged his fans to exercise extreme caution when interacting with others to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“If you guys are having family and friends over to your house, you know them, you trust them. They can be quarantining just like you guys. You still never know. You never know,” he emphasized, suggesting to have visitors “tested the day before.”

“Don’t let your guard down, boost your immunity with antioxidants, vitamins, things of that nature,” he added.

“It baffles me that some people out there, including some politicians, will take this idea of wearing masks and make it part of a political agenda. It has nothing to do with politics. Wear your mask. It is a fact. And it is the right thing to do.”
