Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive," she wrote in an Instagram post.

Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative," Pink said in the post, alongside a picture of her with her son. She also called for testing to be made free and more available, saying it was an "absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible."

The Broncos, they got free tests; it’s right down the street.' Two days later they tell me I had the coronavirus."
