Sharon Stone’s younger sister, Kelly Stone Singer, and Kelly’s husband, Bruce Singer, have tested negative for COVID-19.
The Basic Instinct actress revealed Aug. 15 that the two had contracted the virus. At the time, Stone was angry with people who neglected to wear masks, because she blamed them for her sister’s diagnosis. She said that her sister, who already struggles with the autoimmune disease lupus, “does not have an immune system” and that they only place she had gone was the pharmacy. She pleaded with people to wear face coverings.
On Monday, Stone thanked those who backed her family. She had shared some information about Singer’s situation in Montana, where she and her husband live, regarding the testing procedure and how long it took to get results, as well as Stone’s own efforts to reach the governor, which she addressed in the update.
“Your love, support & rampant discord made changes in policy,” the Oscar nominee tweeted. “You were heard. & no the governor didn’t return my call nor get tests for those 600 front line Montana medical workers.”
