Samantha Bernardo is currently under home quarantine after contracting COVID-19.
The Miss Grand International first runner-up and former Pinoy Big Brother housemate made the announcement on her Instagram account on Monday after her RT-PCR test came back positive.
“It’s unfortunate because I was supposed to do a lot of work, but this calls for home quarantine and rest days. I remember our Bahay Ni Kuya moments where we don’t need to wear masks and we can hug each other,” wrote Samantha who ended her Pinoy Big Brother stint just days ago.
The 29-year-old beauty queen went on to share that she’s “feeling weak and have colds as symptoms but I am still able to smell and taste”.
“I promise that I will take care of myself and hopefully recover faster,” Samantha assured her fans saying she would continue to update them through livestreams.
“Stay safe and healthy everyone. Health is wealth! Love you all,” she added.
Samantha was among the Top 5 finalists of PBB Kumunity Season 10 celebrity edition. She made her exit from the TV reality show on January 1.
