In one of her latest updates from August 22nd, Duff appeared to be on the mend as her sense of taste has started to return.

In other posts, Duff details more of her quarantine activities, including getting an IV vitamin infusion and marathon watching all three seasons of Yellowstone, joking in a caption that she's able to ride a horse and happy to join the cast. As for her next move, she'll be taking on Hulu's drama-thriller Nine Perfect Strangers, which she showcased with a swanky package from the show complete with a giant crystal and aromatherapy items.

According to the CDC, breakthrough cases in the vaccinated are expected, particularly with the highly contagious Delta variant becoming the dominant strain of the COVID-19 virus in the United States. If you develop symptoms for the COVID-19 virus, you can visit your state, tribal, or local health department for testing or contact your primary care physician.

Here's to a speedy recovery for Duff and some quality streaming marathon watches.
