COUNTING On's Jill Duggar had to get tested for coronavirus this week after developing concerning symptoms.
The mother of two had revealed the family of four had gotten tested and were back a second time.
Jill, 29, recently revealed on her Instagram and her blog that she had gotten tested for COVID-19.
She described she had developed symptoms, such as a cough, fever, rashes on both arms, and body aches.
The former reality TV star also revealed her feet felt like they were burning.
On Instagram, she wrote: "Well…we did it…a few weeks ago we got tested for the Coronavirus after developing several of the symptoms."
"P.S. We are all well now, praise the Lord!"
While in her blog The Dillard Family, she said that she developed some of the basic symptoms for coronavirus, and after getting tested, "her results came back negative."
However, after a few days, she developed even more symptoms, got retested, but it came back negative once more.
The Counting On alum also posted two videos where she described her symptoms and then showed her fans how testing went.
In the first video, she's talking about the rashes she developed under both arms and how her feet felt like they were burning.
She had a mask covering her face but she often took it off to talk. Her children and husband, Derick Dillard, did not wear theirs.
In the second video, Jill is seen getting tested.
A testing site worker swabs both of her nostrils, which clearly make Jill uncomfortable as she closes her eyes in pain.
Once the testing is done, Jill tears up and has a coughing fit which she covers with her mask.
Thankfully, her results came back negative a second time.
Her coronavirus test comes just one day after Derick claimed he was “strongly discouraged” from talking to family members about compensation from their reality show Counting On, he exclusively told The Sun.
The allegation caused a rift with Jill’s parents Jim Bob, 54, and Michelle, 53, as the patriarch banned them from the family compound.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Derick said he is “not sure” if other family members, including adult children Jana, John David, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah and Joy-Anna, were paid for their appearances.
He said: “We were strongly discouraged from talking to other family members about payment or lack thereof.”
Derick also claimed he was “not allowed” to speak with anyone at the TLC network regarding payment.
Derick has been outspoken regarding TLC and his father-in-law since they stopped filming Counting On in 2017.
He said of why he’s now chosen to speak out: “First and foremost, I want to do what’s best for my family.
"This includes the timeline of what I share, when I share it, and how I do so.
“We also don’t know what we don’t know. Our own knowledge of the situation has been constantly evolving for years.”
Derick revealed on Instagram in December that he was under the impression Duggar children and spouses “didn’t make any money from the show.”
He wrote: “But rather, it was presented to us kids as something that was done as a ministry that TLC periodically subsidized in the form reimbursements for things like gas, restaurants, travel, etc… but not any actual pay on top of that.”
He revealed Jim Bob is the "only one with a contract.”
Since the shocking claims, their relationship with her parents has been strained.
He previously told The Sun how their feud has caused a rift in their relationship with her siblings.
Derick said: “Because our visitation to the Duggar house has been restricted and that is where they and their spouses hang out, we have not been able to see other family as much as we would like, so that is difficult.
“We do try to invite brothers and sisters-in-law over as much as they can come.”
Derick continued: “We hope and pray God would restore relationships where there is brokenness.
“But, at the same time, we recognize that only God can change people’s hearts and bring healing.”
As for his claim of being banned from the family compound, Derick said: “I think he’s mainly worried about the influence we might have on his children.”
Jill and Derick have rebelled against the conservative family in recent years.
Jill has broken the family’s modest dress code, as she’s worn jeans and tank tops.
The mother of Israel, 5, and Samuel, 2, also got her nose pierced and cut her hair short.
They chose to enroll their oldest son in public school, despite the Duggar tradition of homeschooling their children, and they allow their children to listen to rave music as opposed to strictly Christian songs.
