Reba McEntire Didn’t Have Covid After All

It turns out Reba McEntire didn’t have Covid, after all!

She recently told fans via a Tik Tok livestream that she tested positive despite being fully vaccinated.  However, Monday (August 23rd), she clarified things, during her appearance on Talk Shop Live saying she had a false positive – and that she likely had the RSV virus.

She told show host Nancy O’Dell, “I did say that I had COVID, but when I got tested, my antibodies — it came up that I had not had COVID. I had my antibodies from my vaccine.  I had all the symptoms.  The test . . . said that I had it, but then the nurse that came and tested me for my antibodies said that I probably had the RSV virus.”

RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) is common and very contagious, with symptoms similar to Covid.
