Betty White Is Okay

Giphy

Everyone, please don't panic: Betty White is safe.

According to Fox News, White is in quarantine and staying out of danger, like many of us. Fox News cites TMZ, which says that according to a source, America's sweetheart is following sensible advice and taking part in social distancing to further reduce her risk of contracting the coronavirus.

TMZ writes:

"Sources close to the Hollywood legend tell TMZ ... Betty's in good health as she continues to self-isolate at her Los Angeles estate. We're told she has very limited in-person interactions, and she's only coming in contact with people being equally cautious of the virus.

Our sources say 98-year-old Betty's essential errands, like groceries, are being taken care of for her so she never has to leave the house."

White has reassured her fans that she will “be in the saddle forever," and we're going to hold her to that.

TMZ adds that Los Angeles is under a "stay-at-home order," which means that people are only recommended to go outside to get essential things and maybe get some exercise. White is said to be just chillaxing inside her home.

Another good thing? Fox News says White is only interacting with others who are taking coronavirus very seriously, which can increase the chances she'll stay healthy.

On March 12, Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said that COVID-19 "seems to be a disease that affects adults and most seriously older adults. Starting at age 60, there is an increasing risk of disease and the risk increases with age."

But that was March 12. Today, various news reports continue to circulate about younger people with no comorbidities coming down with the virus and getting very sick.

And that's not the only thing. There continues to be a shortage of masks, ventilators, personal protective equipment and other supplies needed to successfully fight the coronavirus.

Most people are doing everything they can to stay away from others to help flatten the curve and lower the spike of cases, though it seems these days it's a losing battle.

Please Stay Safe Everyone

"Someone get Betty White into her own quarantine... we can’t lose her #CoronaOutbreak," wrote @MBarber_22 on March 11.

Other seniors are also getting special attention, including Elizabeth Warren, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jimmy Carter, Willie Nelson and Morgan Freeman.

We don't want to lose anyone to coronavirus, but hearing that Betty White is weathering the storm is encouraging news.
