Rachel Matthews, the actress who voiced Honeymaren in “Frozen 2,” announced that she has tested positive for coronavirus.

“Unsure of what the next step is (been getting mixed info so will keep you posted) but obviously will remain in quarantine until told to do otherwise,” the 26-year-old wrote in an Instagram story late Monday, revealing she’s been quarantined since last week. “I’m feeling better, but I will be posting some info that I hope will be helpful to some. Please feel free to reach out and ask me any questions.”

Matthews, who also appeared in “Looking for Alaska,” said she got tested because she had “been around a confirmed case,” but also warned that tests are “INSANELY hard to come by.”

“Our country is very behind, and we don’t have much of a system in place,” she wrote. “BUT receiving a test that shows you’re positive really doesn’t change much. It’s not like you receive a specific medication once positive so please, if you have symptoms at all but can’t find a test please just treat yourself as if you are positive (you most likely are). Rest, drink lots of liquids and SELF QUARANTINE.”

The actress also listed out her ever-changing symptoms, including sore throat, fatigue, a headache, fever, body chills, shortness of breath and loss of appetite.

Several celebrities have been diagnosed with coronavirus since the deadly disease began spreading, including Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and Idris Elba, who got his test back Monday.

“We live in a divided world right now. We can all feel it. It’s been bulls — t,” Elba said in a video. “But now’s the time for solidarity. Now’s the time for thinking about each other.

“There’s so many people whose lives have been affected, from those who have lost people they’ve loved to people who don’t even have it and have lost their livelihoods. This is real.”
