Closer Weekly: Betty White Is Doing Well at 98 Amid COVID-19 Outbreak
Fans are still worrying about Betty White amid the coronavirus. Thankfully, the beloved actress remains in good health and is keeping her mind right.
Betty White's health seems to be as reliable as her undying humor. At 98, lots of fans were quick to sound a call of concern for the actress. According to Closer Weekly, they have nothing to worry about.
The "Golden Girls" alum reportedly spoke to the outlet this week as lockdowns continue across the nation. Like most others, White is spending most of her time at home.

Even if our bodies seem to be taking priority, White hasn't slowed down in caring for her mental health as well. Entertainer Tom Sullivan alleges that the actress reads the LA Times newspaper in full every single morning.
She also completes tons of crossword puzzles to "keep her mind jumping." One close friend said that White attempted to play Scrabble with her friends via a Zoom call. Unfortunately, it didn't work out.

For food, White enjoys whipping up a grilled cheese sandwich now and then and snacking on her favorite — hot dogs and french fries. Of course, she throws some alcohol in there in the form of a vodka martini.

White has advice for those fans to get through the current difficulty. A friend shared her message to slow down and enjoy what matters most in our lives, like friends and family.
When White turned 98 earlier this year, she was awarded the Guinness record for the longest TV career for a female. It all began in 1939. Since then, White has left her mark with comedic emphasis.
She was also the oldest person to host "Saturday Night Live." Off-screen, White is praised for her work as an animal rights activist and, interestingly enough, she wanted to be an opera singer before all the fame.
Despite her age, White is still giving fans screentime. Earlier this month, Lifetime Network announced that the actress was set to appear in a Christmas movie later this year.
White will reportedly be cast as a sassy drill sergeant at a Christmas boot camp that trains Santas and spreads the true meaning of the holiday. We hope by then all is safe for the beloved star.
