Actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee recently made headlines after her Goregaon building was sealed and declared as a containment zone by the BMC after a resident tested positive for COVID-19. Some reports suggested that Devoleena’s cook had tested positive for COVID-19 and that she was also placed under quarantine. Because of this, the actress has been quarantined for 14 days.
However, now the actress has rubbished all these reports. Devoleena Bhattacharjee, in an Instagram, clarified that her house help was not COVID-19 positive, but he was placed under quarantine because he worked for the same family whose member was affected by the virus.
Confirming the same, Devoleena Bhattacharjee told TOI, “My housing society has announced a containment zone after a person in my building tested positive a few days back. It was so sudden that it took me some time to get my head around it. I started my day like any other, only to find that the complex has been sealed off. I dialled a few fellow residents and that’s when I learnt that someone had tested positive for COVID-19.”
Devoleena Bhattacharjee also revealed that her help was indeed tested and contrary to reports, he had tested negative, but for precautionary purposes, he was placed under quarantine. “My domestic help works for the family whose member has tested positive. Fortunately, he tested negative, but for safety purposes, he has been kept under quarantine. Our movements have been restricted and we aren’t allowed to step out of the premises,” revealed the actress.
Devoleena Bhattacharjee went on to reveal that she is well stocked up on essential food items but for anything that is required urgently, their building’s security staff has been of huge help. She added that she is lucky to have all the essential items like milk and vegetables and that the security staff at the building is also helping her out.
