  'Feeling Fabulous' at 50: Inside Megyn Kelly's Intimate Milestone Birthday Celebration "I have never had a more exciting time with a small group of people where I laughed so hard my stomach hurt," Megyn Kelly tells PEOPLEOver the weekend, the Megyn Kelly Show podcast host — who turned 50 on Wednesday — was surprised by her husband, Doug Brunt, their three children and a few close friends with an intimate celebration.

RT.com supports Covid - 19 testing and other widely-adopted public health measures developed to fight the pandemic. It turns out that tests that deliver a simple binary “ positive or negative” result are not fit for purpose, as they tell us nothing about the contagiousness of each person.

Was tested for covid four times today. Two tests came back negative, two came back positive . The tweet sparked a heated debate on social media, with some accusing the billionaire businessman of being “irresponsible” by suggesting that Covid - 19 tests are unreliable.

Awaiting round two of their covid tests, my seven year old son tells his Dad, "I hope I have COVID, so I can hug mom."

That statement, so simply, so sad, shows the culmination of what quarantine feels like.

And we're the lucky ones. The ones with a comfortable, large and well equipped home. With friends who deliver food and, most notably, an asymptomatic COVID case.

I have COVID-19.

A statement I dreaded ever saying, and not for the right reasons. I feared saying it not because I feared getting it. I feared saying it because of the social judgment I expect to accompany it and for the fear of spreading it to more vulnerable people.

  Kelly Stafford, wife of Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford, apologizes for comparing Michigan to 'dictatorship' Kelly Stafford apologized Thursday for comparing Michigan to a 'dictatorship' during social media post about state's new COVID-19 restrictions."should never have used the word 'dictatorship,' " Kelly Stafford wrote Thursday in her Instagram apology. "i got caught up in the heat of the moment, that is my fault. i don't know the answer and i won't pretend to. i care about the people who are losing their lives or battling this.. and also the medical staff who care for them. and it is hard knowing these local business owners and watching them struggle and having to lay off their employees, not knowing how they are gonna make it. so i'm sorry.

So, you could test positive in March 2020, then die in March 2040, and still be recorded as having died of Covid . ‘Britain is an outlier internationally in not reporting the number of people who have recovered from Covid - 19 alongside statistics on deaths and numbers of identified cases.’

Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania are the latest members of Congress to test positive for Covid - 19 , their offices announced Friday. Kelly said in a separately released statement later in the day, "When I started experiencing mild flu-like symptoms earlier this week, I consulted my primary care physician.

Now, in what I hope is the height of the second wave, I reflect on the social stigma of COVID-19.

Now I'm talking (or rather, writing)

I am a very public figure. Still, I didn't want to write or talk about this positive test.

We are supporters of mask wearing, with hand sanitizers stashed everywhere. Still, my son goes to school and we've partaken in sport and small, socially distanced gatherings.

So, where/how did we get it?

Hockey … most likely.

Although the effects of the pandemic have been felt far and wide, our community has been largely untouched by the disease itself. For the most part, our numbers where well under 10 cases in a valley that includes Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise, Alta. Considering that hundreds of thousands of tourists continued to pour through this area over the summer months, this fact was a source of pride.

Then, Halloween came and far too many people partied. The numbers have since skyrocketed and we're now one of the highest (if not the highest) rate of positive tests per capita in Alberta.

Scary stuff

My husband and I are both on-ice volunteers with my sons U9 team. After a Monday night practice, we received word, late Wednesday evening that someone on the ice had tested positive. We were required to go into 14 days of quarantine — all three of us.

First things first, we booked in for testing the following day, even though we knew it wouldn't shorten our quarantine period. Thankfully we did.

Test results came back (much later than expected). First for my son and husband on Saturday morning, then mine late that evening. They were negative, I was positive.

I wear a full visor on the ice. This makes it a bit harder to hear and be heard, so I get extra close to the kids. Plus, we were, more or less, told that masks weren't welcomed on the ice, even though they are mandatory everywhere else in the building.

Viral tests will only pick up cases of Covid - 19 , not colds or flu.

Researchers at King's College London say the loss of sense of smell and taste could be the best way to tell if you have Covid - 19 after tracking symptoms via their app. 59% of the people who had tested positive reported these symptoms.

Thankfully, I'm asymptomatic. However, that fact also showcases why contract tracing is so vital. I would never have gotten tested had I not been told I was exposed.

From what I can tell — and I called everyone I crossed paths with while potentially contagious — I didn't pass on the disease. Making me extra thankful I was practicing social distancing and mask wearing.

Now what?

For now, I sit in my basement, largely on vacation, as my husband cares for my son and delivers my meals.

I write, thankful for the care I'm receiving and for being the luckiest of COVID patients — asymptomatic.

Still, I am acutely aware of the impact isolation is having on my family. My sons emotions are frayed and my husband is exhausted both from the work load and from the unknown. Did I pass COVID onto them? Will our quarantine be extended? And most notably, the fear of knowing symptoms may be just around the corner.

Now, with bated breath we wait for our second round of test results. Thankful, we have a breath to take.
