Blangiardi said he was feeling sluggish on Tuesday, April 12, so he took a COVID-19 test on Wednesday morning. The result was positive for COVID-19. He reported his symptoms were mild since he got his booster shot.
“I had an occasional cough, an occasional sneeze, kind of a runny nose,” said Blangiardi. “Candidly if I didn’t know about COVID or if we didn’t know about COVID. I would’ve thought I just had a cold. I feel fortunate. I think the challenge of this whole thing was to stay home for five days.”
