Carrie posted the news on Instagram, saying: "Hey everyone, I have tested positive for Covid-19. I’m home with some symptoms and will be sequestering as per the CDC guidelines, resting and taking care of myself.
"I have been in a very safe environment following all the guidelines and safety protocols and it still found it’s way to me. So, this is a friendly reminder to be extra careful this holiday season. Wear your masks, socially and physically keep your distance, and wash your hands. Take care everyone. And I’ll keep you updated on my journey."
