In an Instagram post, the "Pitch Perfect" actress shared that she was "extremely sick" for three weeks following a public outing without a mask.
"I was incredibly safe. I wore a mask. I used hand sanitizer," Camp shared with her fans. "One time, when the world was starting to open up, I decided to forgo wearing my mask in public. One. Time. And I ended up getting it."
Camp said the virus was nothing like having the flu and experienced persistent symptoms including dizziness, extreme fatigue, impacted sinuses, upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, fever and the complete loss of the sense of smell and taste.
"The panic of contracting a virus that is basically untreatable and is so new that no one knows the long-term irreparable damage it does to your immune system is unbelievably stressful," Camp wrote.

Although the actress has since tested negative for the virus, she shared that she still has lingering symptoms and can only smell about 30 percent of how she used to.
"I'm lucky. Because I didn't die. But people are. Please wear [your] mask," Camp said.
Camp urged her followers to do their part to curb the spread of the disease.
"I don't want any of you to go through what I did," Camp said.
