“In the meantime, please assume no news from me just means I’m quietly spending the pandemic the way people are – failing to make sourdough bread, caring for my loved ones, and doing my best not to spread a virus that is still affecting so many people,” Watson states. “I am sending so much love to you, hoping you’re ok and as well and happy as you can be in these strange times. And again, thank you to everyone working so hard to keep us safe and well.”
