*Sharon Stone is urging people to take the coronavirus seriously after both her sister and brother-in-law were hospitalized after testing positive for the deadly contagion. 

The actress shared a video of her sister Kelly Stone struggling to breathe, and noted that Kelly’s husband Bruce Singer is also fighting for his life from the COVID-19 ward at a hospital in Montana where the couple live. 

“I beg you to know that this is real,” Kelly said in a video shared on Instagram over the weekend. “I’m gasping for every breath with oxygen. Please do this for the people that you love — stand behind more tests, more masks, demanding everyone wear a mask. You never, ever want to feel like this. I promise you I only have love in my heart, it is breaking for people that can’t breathe.”

In a separate video, Sharon noted that her sister has lupus and expressed frustration over the lack of available testing in Montana.

“The stress, the strain, the exhaustion that is happening in that hospital is met with the conflict around the courthouse, where people are carrying guns and saying it’s their freedom not to have to wear a mask,” Sharon said, referencing Governor Steve Bullock’s mask mandate, which prompted protests outside the state’s Capitol building, per PEOPLE

“This is the situation in Montana, where the governor, Steve Bullock, is not returning my calls. Where the health department, where I continuously call, is hanging up on me,” Sharon said. “This is the state of affairs in the middle of our country. Where you, the people in the middle of our country are at great risk of dying from COVID.”

“They keep saying that the risks are so small and that you might not die and that it’ll be fine,” Sharon added. “But I’m telling you what’s going on with my family. My grandmother died of COVID, and my godmother died of COVID. My sister and her husband are fighting for their lives and my sister is not doing well.”

“There was no one to help them while they were home alone because there are no kind of nurses that can come to the house there because there’s no tests for them,” the actress said.

“When they say there are tests for everyone they are lying. When they say there are tests even for the nurses in the hospitals, they are lying. People are dying and fighting for their lives because there’s nothing but lies,” she continued, 

Stone then called on fans to take action by voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in November. 

“The only thing that’s going to change this is if you vote. And if you vote for Biden and if you vote for Kamala Harris,” she said in the video.

*This Tuesday, the First Lady’s chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, shared that Melania Trump has decided not to accompany President Trump to a campaign rally this evening in Erie, Pennsylvania, out of an “abundance of caution.”

In a statement, she claims Mrs. Trump continues to feel better every day following her recent recovery from COVID-19, but has a ”lingering cough,” The Hill quotes.

As we previously reported, the Trumps announced that they had both tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month. The President was hospitalized for a few days but was later released after receiving “treatment.” Melania previously said she was experiencing mild symptoms but told her supporters that she felt great. This event would’ve been her first public engagement since contracting the coronavirus.

VIDEO: How NJ’s Most Segregated County Fueled COVID: Racism & Coronavirus Made a ‘Vicious Circle’

USA TODAY: In New Jersey’s most segregated county, racism and coronavirus made a ‘vicious circle’

*Housing segregation has made New Jersey ripe for the pandemic’s spread, according to a new six-part series in USA TODAY that examines how racism fuels COVID-19 deaths.

One of the stories focuses on NJ’s Essex County, home to some of the most segregated and impoverished communities in the U.S., where some residents jam together in cramped apartments, multi-generational homes and housing projects. Essex County was among the top 10 in the country for its death rate from the novel coronavirus during the first wave of the pandemic, and still hovers in the top 15 months later.

New Jersey leaders try to address the inequities that allowed COVID-19 to hit parts of Essex County harder than communities that have more whites. They point to decades of housing policies – some unspoken, some written –  that banned white property owners from selling homes to Black buyers. Those practices also excluded Black residents from the midcentury homeownership and wealth-building boom, and they kept communities of color concentrated in often poor and neglected neighborhoods.

Below, a video from the story by USA TODAY writers Deborah Barfield Berry and Kameel Stanley.

Pixar’s ‘Soul’ to Release COVID-Documentary About Filming Amid Pandemic

*Pixar is taking audiences behind-the-scenes of the making of “Soul” to show the stressful challenges of completing the film amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Kemp Powers, co-director and writer on the film, shared the news during a virtual press conference, EW reports. 

“We ended up actually creating a documentary about the process of finishing Soul remotely that’ll come out at some future date,” he says.

Producer Dana Murray said there were “seven weeks of production left” when the shelter-in-place ordinances came down at the onset of the pandemic in America. 

“I guess we were really lucky and blessed of where we were at in production because the back-end is highly technical. So, people were able to literally grab their machines and go home with them, and we were up and running in a day or two,” she explains. “Our systems team is incredible. Everyone was just really resilient.”

“Usually when we complete these films, we get to celebrate it,” Kemp says. “We have this big theater full of everyone celebrating the film being completely done and we weren’t able to do that. So, it just dawned on me fairly recently that outside of just a handful of people, most of the folks who worked on Soul have not seen the completed mixed film. It’s something that we still haven’t been able to share with the team that’s done it.”

We previously reported…”Soul” will premiere Dec. 25 on Disney+. The animated feature is the first for Pixar with a predominantly Black voice cast featuing Jamie Foxx, Questlove, Daveed Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, Angela Bassett, and Richard Ayoade.

Foxx voices a jazz player who suddenly dies and his soul attempts to make its way back to Earth to keep on living.

Honored to be the first ever African American lead in a Pixar film. 100 days away. I cannot wait for you all to see this beautiful story,” Foxx wrote on Twitter back in March, sharing the poster for the film. 

Directed by Powers and two-time Academy Award-winner Pete Docter, the idea for the story is 23 years in the making, per MovieWeb.

“It started with my son, he’s 23 now, but the instant he was born, he already had a personality,” said Docter. “Where did that come from? I thought your personality developed through your interaction with the world. And yet, it was pretty clear that we’re all born with a very unique, specific sense of who we are.”
