Johnson explained that he, his wife Lauren and their daughters, 4-year-old Jasmine and Tiana, 2, tested positive after spending time with “very close family friends.”
He urged fans to strengthen their immune systems and be strict about the people who you allow into your home right now. He followed that rule in the past, he said, but plans to be even more so in the future.
“Get everybody tested before they come over,” Johnson advised. “Get everybody tested the day before.”
“It baffles me that some people out there, including some politicians, would take this idea of wearing masks and… make it part of a political agenda,” Johnson said. “It has nothing to do with politics. Wear your mask. It is a fact. It is the right thing to do, and it’s the responsible thing to do, not only for yourself and your family and your loved ones, but also for your fellow human beings.”
“Wear your mask,” he said. “I’m not a politician. I’m a man though who cares about my family deeply.”
He called it “one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me, too, personally as well.” Seeing his family, which he always protects, affected has been especially painful, a “real kick in the gut,” he said.
Johnson summed up his strategy with one phrase: “Control the controllables.”
