Fox 2 journalist Maurielle Lue shares personal health news while thanking online well-wishers for "all of the birthday love."

The morning anchor and reporter, who joined the local station in 2011, had anchored and co-hosted from home for pandemic safety. Her last remote segment apparently was a March 15 discussion of Grammys fashions.

"I believe it [the virus] came courtesy of a food or grocery delivery," she replies Sunday to a Twitter question. Lue, recuperating at home, also posts:

"I believe I had it last year during Mardi Gras, before the shutdowns and before we knew what it would be. I didn't have any more antibodies by the time I took the test, but I'm sure I had it before. THIS is much worse."

The broadcaster draws over 2,800 comments in less than a day below her Facebook post, which is shared more than 100 times.

She planned to make a brief Facebook Live appearance:

In addition to weekday anchor duties, Lue hosted "The Nine," a morning news talk show, and has been a co-host of "Let it Rip Weekend."
