Runaway June’s Jennifer Wayne Reveals She Contracted COVID-19, Says It ‘Rocked Me’

JENNIFER WAYNE of Runaway June went public yesterday to say she has COVID-19.  The good news is that she “kicked its ass” . . . and if that doesn’t sound like something her grandfather John Wayne would say, nothing does.

She shared with fans the news along with a list of things that helped her fight it off.

“I loaded up on Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, B complex; chaga mushrooms and lots of zinc.  I drank more water and Gatorade than I ever have [to] flush it out of my system.  The vitamins, staying hydrated, and getting rest were a lifesaver for me.”

She’s also paying it forward by donating her blood and plasma to help others.

She included in the post on Instagram “three things she’s grateful for.”  One is that her parents didn’t get it.  Secondly, she’s grateful to her body for fighting it off, and the last one is her “incredible family and friends.”

I’ve been struggling with whether or not to share, because to be honest it’s kind of rocked me and I wasn’t sure that putting it on a public platform was right for me. But as I’ve been telling people, I’ve had so many people reach out and say they have/had the virus and what did I do, what were my symptoms etc. So anyway, I am sharing this because I did contract Covid 19 (I’m assuming from the grocery store, it’s the only place I’ve been?!) and I had some great advice from doctors and friends and family (@travelingwithfinn !)… and this helped me kick this things ass. Everyone is different, and each body’s immune system fights it off in a different way, so I am definitely not saying I have any answers… just wanted to share what I did in case it helps. I loaded up on Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, B complex; chaga mushrooms and ZINC! Lots of Zinc. I also drank more water and Gatorade then I ever have in my life. I wanted to flush that thing out of my system. Those vitamins and staying hydrated and rest were a lifesaver for me. I’ve read lots of articles about what to do as far as self isolation etc… but not so many on what to do to combat it because there is so much unknown. But that seemed to really help me and I really felt I needed to share. Next up, donating my blood and plasma to help others. Sorry for the long post, and sending LOTS of love to all of you and hope you are staying healthy and safe!

Glad to see Jennifer is feeling better and can’t wait to hear new music from Runaway June when they can get back in the studio.
