Singer Pink revealed in an Instagram post on Friday that she and her three-year-old son Jameson had showed symptoms of COVID-19, and that she later was tested and came up positive, USA Today reports. "My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative." The singer also called it a "an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible." The singer also pledged $500,000 donations to a couple of organizations battling the outbreak, one in Philadelphia, and the other in Los Angeles. "THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones," she said, in closing. "You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home."

Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive. My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative. It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible. This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities. In an effort to support the healthcare professionals who are battling on the frontlines every day, I am donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center. Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund. THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home.❤️
