The actress, 55, shared the news with a selfie on Instagram, along with a length caption detailing her battle with the COVID-19 disease.
She wrote: “I AM OK! About a month ago my entire home (husband and two teen daughters) got an odd bug- Low grade fever, headaches, sore throat, body aches, ears ringing and a dry cough.
“It cleared up quickly. Seasonal I thought? but it felt unusual/different… Two weeks later, March 15th, I woke up with all those same symptoms but super intense body aches, and 102.4 fever.
“I figured maybe I got the flu or..Corona? I had had cocktails the evening prior, and smoked a few cigarettes. I figured I had jacked my immune system from having a fun night with friends.
Debi continued: “I called a doctor/friend to ask if I could get the Covid-19 test on 3/16. He said NO, I didn’t meet the criteria. I hadn’t recently traveled out of the country& I hadnt been with someone who had actually tested positive.
“I found this kind of a CRAZY criteria for a NY’er as I had taken the subway, gone to the theater, the grocery store, the pharmacy, hair salon, etc.
“I was the Mom who was trying to prepare the home and get supplies & bleach wipes, dry goods, extra food etc.”
Debi stars as Maggie Amato on the TVLand sitcom Younger, which also stars Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff and Nico Tortorella.
