She thinks that she might’ve had a “really mild” case of COVID-19 as she briefly experienced a “mild fever” and other cold symptoms. On the other hand, she acknowledges that she could’ve just been “drained” too.
Months have since passed and to this day, Lisa says she doesn’t know if she had the virus and doesn’t feel like she “needs” a test when others need it more.
In general, the 56-year-old says she feels lucky in many ways, especially since she was able to give her mother a funeral service that others have not been afforded during this time.
And she shares that she has a greater understanding of what health care workers are going through, not just in the hospital, but in regards to their lives at home. Kudrow shares, “That’s the stuff that breaks my heart, too, when I see parents, especially in the health care field, who come home from work and are like, ‘Hi, remember, we have to stay away from mommy.’ How is a 3-year-old supposed to understand that?”
