Matthew Broderick’s sister is in an intensive care unit after testing positive for coronavirus.
“I am so thankful for your prayers as I have been ill,” she wrote in the statement announcing her diagnosis.
“Everyone has been so good to me and supported me with prayers.”
The reverend assured congregation members that she is improving in spite of her condition.
“I am through the worst of this and very very much on the mend,” she wrote.
She first fell ill in February while at a conference in Louisville, Kentucky attended by representatives from 500 churches around the country, according to her church.
While her church at first said that her illness was “a viral syndrome” that “did not warrant further concern,” Janet went to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles when another conference attendant tested positive for COVID-19.
A representative for Matthew Broderick did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
The news comes one day after Tom Hanks announced that he and his wife Rita Wilson tested positive for coronavirus.
