Liv Tyler has been reunited with her family after a “wild” two weeks battling COVID-19.

“Reunited with my loves … what a wild 2 weeks” she began the lengthy caption.
“I tested positive for covid 19 on New Year’s Eve day. S**t I had made it all the way through 2020 keeping myself and my family safe,” she explained, sharing: “Suddenly on The morn of the last day of 2020… boom it took me down (sic).”
Confessing the virus brought with it “feelings of fear, shame and guilt” Tyler added that fortunately the rest of her family tested negative.
“There are so many strange elements to this sickness,” she continued, “It effects (sic) everyone so completely differently. I was so lucky and had corona light as my momma @realbebebuell called it but It floored me for 10 days in my bed.”
Tyler concluded her message by wishing others with the virus love.
“We are all connected through this experience. I am Humbled and filled with gratitude . to be well , a gift and beaming love and light to all those who have left this world because of this virus and those who are suffering (sic),” she wrote.
