The former Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe seems to be changing her holiday plans soon. The 35-year-old television personality announced through Instagram on Dec. 24 that she has been contracted with coronavirus along with her boyfriend, Jason Tartick.
“Unfortunately, this is our Christmas card this year. We have Covid,” Bristowe wrote. “Jason and I had been trying to quarantine before seeing family. We thought we were making a responsible decision to have ONE person over, who had been tested daily for work. Negative tests 4 days in a row. The day we saw her, she became positive which we all found out the next day.”
“Now, like many, we will spend Christmas by ourselves. We just want to let everyone know that we thought we were being safe, but covid is bigger than us,” she continued. “Today, We are thinking of everyone who is spending the holidays alone, anyone who is sick or overcoming something, (as 2020 has taught us to overcome a lot), and all of the healthcare workers who have been away from family, taking care of others for months, and months now. We will be ok!! Be safe and happy holidays!!”
The 32-year-old banker wrote on his own page that “We had a responsible quarantine plan in place so that we could see my family for the holiday. Shame on us, we didn’t stick to the plan.”
“You just can never be too cautious and careful. There’s no out thinking this god awful virus, lesson learned,” he added. “Thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have been impacted by Covid, to those who have endured a challenging 2020, to the healthcare workers putting their lives on the line every day for others and to those who are family less during the holiday.”
