According to Sylvia, on March 24, she and her husband were brought to Cardinal Santos Medical center in San Juan after having chills and experiencing shortness of breath. They were made to take the COVID-19 swab test and have isolated themselves since then.

“A week later, we finally received the results and we came out positive for COVID-19,” the seasoned actress said in her social media post.

Sylvia asked those people whom she had contact with before the community quarantine to examine themselves for any symptoms similar to what they have experienced.

“We would like to request those whom we saw prior to the community quarantine to monitor for symptoms of shortness of breath, cough, fever, LBM and sore throat,” she said.

The actress assured that she and her husband are doing well at the moment and have been strictly following their doctor’s orders.

“Art and I are getting better each day. Although this is slower than our usual recovery, we know that with prayers and strict compliance with our doctor’s orders, we will get there. Until then, we will keep you updated on how this progresses,” Sylvia shared.

She ended her post by reminding people to stay home while frontliners are containing the deadly virus.

“Most importantly, stay home to help prevent the spread of the virus,” Sylvia ended.
