Rachel Matthews has tested positive for COVID-19.

Monday on Instagram Story, the actress — who voiced the character of “Honeymaren” in “Frozen 2” — announced her diagnosis, saying she has been quarantined for the past week.

“Hey guys, I tested positive for Covid-19 and have been in quarantine the last week. Unsure of what the next step is (been getting mixed info so will keep you posted) but obviously will remain in quarantine until told to do otherwise,” the 26-year-old wrote.

The “Happy Death Day” star said she got tested after she began showing symptoms and was around a “confirmed case.”

Despite her health battle, Matthews is “feeling better.”

Matthews also detailed her symptoms for the past seven days, though she noted that they “do vary” per person.

After experiencing “sore throat, fatigue, headache” on Day 1, Matthews began having a “mild fever (100.3), horrible body aches, chills, sharp pain in lungs” on Day 2 — in addition to having “a dry cough” and “no appetite.”

On Day 4, her symptoms became “more mild,” though she still had no appetite, shortness of breath, and lost her sense of smell and taste.

For the rest of the week, “everything has remained more or less the same” since Day 4.

On the subject of COVID-19 tests, Matthews says “they are INSANELY hard to come by” given the U.S.’s “lack of system.”

Even if one received a positive diagnosis, it “really doesn’t change much.”

“It’s not like you receive a specific medication once positive so please, if you have any symptoms at all but can’t find a test please just treat yourself as if you are positive (you most likely are),” Matthews exclaimed.

Overall, she urges fans to “rest, drink lots of liquids and SELF QUARANTINE.”
