‘American Idol’ Alum Casey Goode’s Newborn Son Catches COVID-19 From Medical Worker
In an Instagram post detailing the harrowing situation, the social media influencer reveals she and her two-week-old baby boy are currently quarantining in the PICU.
AceShowbiz -Casey Goode’s maternal bliss has been cut short by her newborn son’s health scare. At two weeks old, the baby named Maximilian Vaughn Goode tested positive for coronavirus, his mother revealed on Sunday, October 4.
The “American Idol” alum, who is better known as Quigley, shared the upsetting news on Instagram, revealing that Max likely contracted the virus from a medical worker who had cared for him. “Max tested positive for COVID-19 early Saturday am. We took him into the ER after he was running a fever in the middle of the night,” she wrote along with pictures of her with her baby. “We had confirmation that he was exposed from direct contact with a medical professional who had cared for him earlier in the week.”
“This has been a total shock to us,” she continued. Quigley shared that she’s “currently quarantining with baby Max in the PICU.” The mother-of-one added of her own condition, “They are treating me as if I have been exposed and are likely positive as well, although I am showing no symptoms yet.”
Last but not least, Quigley asked her fans and followers to “please send good energy to our little bub so he recovers fast.” Noting that she’s “not sure what happens next from here…,” she informed her followers that “I expect to be offline for a while as we recover.”
Quigley, who auditioned for “American Idol” in 2009, gave birth to her first child with her husband Alex in late September. She went into labor at exactly 37 weeks, right as she and Alex were leaving their “babymoon” in Ojai, California.
