The actor, 48, his wife, Lauren Hashian, and their daughters Jasmine, 4, and Tiana, 2, are all gradually feeling better in the weeks since the diagnosis, he said. 

“I wanted to give you guys a little helpful update on things that have been going on on my end for the past two-and-a-half to three weeks now. So the update is this: my wife Lauren as well as my two baby girls and myself, we have all tested positive for COVID-19,” Johnson said in his video — check it out below. 

“I could tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me, too, personally as well,” he continued. “And I’ve gone through some doozies in the past.”

The “Jumanji” star added, “Testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries, or being evicted, or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times,” Johnson said, adding that “my No.1 priority is to always protect my family. And protect my children, my loved ones.”

Johnson said that he and his family contracted the potentially deadly respiratory virus from “close family friends.” 

“I wish it was only me who tested positive, but it wasn’t, it was my entire family, so this one was a real kick in the gut. But I am happy to tell you guys that we as a family are good. We’re on the other end of it, we’re on the other side. We’re no longer contagious, and we are — thank God — we are healthy.”

Johnson said his daughters “bounced back” pretty quickly while he and his wife “had a rough go at it.”

“We are counting our blessings right now because we’re well aware that it isn’t always the case that you get on the other end of COVID-19 stronger and healthier. I have had some of my best friends have lost their parents, their loved ones, to this virus that is so incredibly relentless and unforgiving, and it is insidious,” he said.

“So for our babies, Jazzy and Tia, they had a little sore throat the first couple of days, but other than that, they bounced back and, and it’s been life as normal, happy babies running around and playing.”

He went on to urge fans to “boost your immunity with antioxidants, vitamins, things of that nature.” 

“The other thing is wear your mask, we have been in quarantine for months, we wear our masks every day,” Johnson continued. “This baffles me that some people out there, including some politicians, will take this idea of wearing mask and make it a political agenda of a political agenda, politicizing. It has nothing to do in politics.”

“Wear your mask. It is a fact, and it is the right thing to do. And it’s the responsible thing to do,” he said.
