Lori Loughlin is reportedly afraid of contracting coronavirus while she’s serving her prison sentence from the college admissions scandal, according to Fox News.

What’s going on?

  • Loughlin is reportedly “scared to death of catching COVID-19, as the virus is ravaging the federal prisons in California,” an unnamed source told Us Weekly magazine.
