Barring a spread of COVID-19 in prison, "Fuller House" actress Lori Loughlin will serve her entire 2-month prison sentence in the college admissions scandal, TMZ has revealed.

According to a new report by TMZ, actress Lori Loughlin will serve the whole 2-month prison sentence at Dublin Federal Prison in Nothern California; the only reason this will not happen is if there is an outbreak of COVID-19 in prison.

It is only under such circumstances that the actress will be let out early. Sources in the know revealed to TMZ that Loughlin would be isolated for the first two weeks of her prison stay.

Her isolation is a routine procedure with officials keen to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in prison. However, even if that happens, Loughlin may still not be released from jail early.

The judge in the actress's case is unlikely to release her early and has previously made it clear that he wants Loughlin to serve the whole of her sentence in prison.

The Board of Prisons do have the power to release Loughlin early if there is a spread of the pandemic in prison, but that is not on the table for discussion now. Loughlin reported to the Federal Prison in Dublin on Friday to begin her 2-months sentence. A prison spokesperson confirmed the news to CNN.

Following her sentencing, the actress expressed her fears about going to prison amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The actress was sentenced in August over her involvement in the college admissions scandal. She was sentenced along with her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, who will serve five months behind bars.

Before sentencing Loughlin, the federal judge presiding over her case accepted a plea deal that will see the actress pay a $150,000 fine and complete 100 hours of community service.

Giannulli, a fashion designer, will also pay a $250,000 fine and complete 250 hours of servitude to the community. In May, the couple admitted their involvement in a fraud scheme that ensured their daughters would gain admission into the University of Southern California as fake athletic recruits.

Following her sentencing, the actress expressed her fears about going to prison amid the COVID-19 pandemic. A source told PEOPLE in August that although Loughlin and Giannulli were relieved that their long legal battle was over, the former was terrified of going to prison.

With fears of contracting COVID-19 in prison, Loughlin did her best to stay as healthy as possible, taking supplements to boost her immune system. Hopefully, for the actress, her sentence will come and go quickly without any health scares.
