Just a day before New Year's eve, 'Will & Grace' actress Debra Messing tested positive for COVID-19. 

Messing took to Instagram to reveal that she had been infected. "I'm COVID POSITIVE. Yup. Happy New Year!
Actually, it is the perfect end to 2021. The juicy cherry on the proverbial cake," the 53-year-old actress captioned a photo of herself on Thursday. The actress can be seen with a sheet mask on her face and a pink hair bonnet over her head.

"So for the next 10 days - while in quarantine- I will beautify…..Or maybe I'll sleep…" she continued, adding that she has "a lot of work to do" before asking her followers for show recommendations to pass the time in between tasks.
