According to reports, Idris Elba’s wife, Sabrina Dhowre, has also tested positive for the Coronavirus. Her Golden Globe-winning husband tested positive the previous week after being in close contact with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife, Sophie Trudeau, who also has the virus. On March 21, Sabrina told Oprah Winfrey that she and Idris didn’t change the way they interacted. Said Sabrina: “But I made the decision to want to be with him and still touch him.” Sabrina said she wasn’t suffering any symptoms and the couple are being quarantined together in New Mexico. Meanwhile, Formula One race car driver Lewis Hamilton was also on the stage with the group, but at press time, hadn’t been tested.

Just this past weekend, some 50 students participated in a virtual session. Kudos to the UNL board, staff and it’s incredible leader, Careshia J. Moore, president and CEO.
