“Hi guys. Unfortunately, this post isn't one I ever thought I would have to make. I'm asking for prayers and positivity sent this way for my daddy, Michael who tested positive for COVID-19 and this morning had to be placed on a ventilator,” the Oscar-nominated actress penned. “We are continuing to stay positive and know he's under great care. I'm extremely thankful for the nurses and doctors who are working hard to make sure he fights this virus. I have faith that things will turn around at any moment, but in the meantime, please continue to wear your masks and follow COVID protocol.”

Following her Instagram post, Breslin took to Twitter to double-down on the seriousness of COVID-19, revealing that despite taking all of the preventative measures to avoid it, her father was still exposed.

“All I can say is this: COVID is never more real until you’ve experienced it firsthand or through a loved one. It’s unpredictable and relentless,” she wrote. “My dad has been incredibly careful and hasn’t left home since it began except for doctors appointments. Please be safe. Please.”
