The Rock Confirms Himself, Wife and Two Daughters Tested Positive for COVID-19

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has ushered in September with some discomforting news.

The 48-year-old former WWE wrestler revealed in an Instagram video that he, along with his wife Lauren Hashian, and two daughters (Tiana, 2 and Jasmine, 4) have all tested positive for COVID-19. In his statement, the Rock says that receiving the diagnoses “has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me personally too. And I’ve gone through some doozies in the past.”

Johnson adds, “I’ve gotten knocked about, gotten my a** kicked a little bit in the past, with some challenges, but testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries or being evicted or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times. And the reason why I feel like this is different is because my number one priority is to always protect my family. Protect my children. My loved ones.”

Thankfully, Johnson confirms that he and his wife and children are relatively in the clear when it comes to bearing the worst of the virus.

He states, “I am happy to tell you guys that we as a family are good. We are on the other end of it. We’re on the other side. We’re no longer contagious and we are, thank God, we are healthy. We’ve gotten through COVID-19 stronger and healthier. Believe me, I am counting my blessings.”

In the caption of his Instagram post, Johnson advised anyone reading or watching his video to “Stay disciplined. Boost your immune system. Commit to wellness. Wear your mask. Protect your family. Be strict about having people over your house or gatherings. Stay positive. And care for your fellow human beings.”
