Jillian Michaels confirmed she contracted coronavirus.
Jillian shared the news during an interview with Fox Business . She said she got the virus from a close friend and advised people against going to public gyms.
“If you are afraid of covid, you should not go to the gym. And I actually am a person who let my guard down, I haven’t even spoken about this publicly really, and a very close friend of mine gave me covid several weeks ago,” she shared.

Michaels said a public gym is the easiest place to get the virus. “All I can tell you is, if you are afraid of getting COVID, a public gym is probably a place where you will get it.”
She also added that her friend wasn’t aware that she had the virus, and it took days after their meeting before they discovered they both had it.
” I had no idea that I had it for six days … my friend had no idea that she had it when she gave it to me”, She said.
