Oprah Winfrey announced last week the details of her very strict COVID-related "policy"
for anyone who wishes to come see her in her home - and bragged that her close friend Gayle King was barred from seeing her until she meets the requirements of "The Policy."
"Everyone who is spending Christmas at my house has to be vaccinated, boosted, tested, and quarantined,"
Winfrey posted to her Facebook account. "Stedman calls it 'The Policy' cause I'm that serious about it."
"This was release day for our bubble and we knew we had to throw a welcome celebration for Baby Luca, who none of us had met yet!"
Winfrey continued, referring to the grandson of King. "We missed his grandma Gayle King but she'll join us once she completes the policy!"
"Thank you to Bon Fortune Style and Ana's Balloon Creations for helping bring the fun to Baby Luca's first time at my house,"
the post closed. "Have a happy and safe holiday, everyone."
As noted by Fox News, King fell short in meeting standards of "The Policy"
by December 23, but met up with her bestie one day later, according to Winfrey's Facebook account.
On December 25, King posted to Facebook, "Followed all the protocols.. test results in! so cleared to join the group ... so happy! @oprah "ain't" playing with COVID takes no chances we all appreciate that..."
Winfrey isn't the only celebrity who has strict guidance for loved ones. Actress Jennifer Aniston in August revealed that she cut out people from her life who are not vaccinated against COVID-19, referring to them as "anti-vaxxers."
"There's still a large group of people who are anti-vaxxers or just don't listen to the facts. It's a real shame,"
Aniston told InStyle. "I've just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate."
actress said that it was her "moral and professional obligation to inform"
people about the COVID-19 vaccine.
"It's tricky because everyone is entitled to their own opinion - but a lot of opinions don't feel based in anything except fear or propaganda,"
A week later, the actress doubled down, telling Instagram users why she won't be around the unvaccinated. The Daily Wire reported:
In an Instagram post, Aniston responded to a fan who asked, "But if [Jennifer's] vaccinated she's protected correct? Why be worried about [having unvaxxed people] around her?"
"Because if you have the variant, you are still able to give it to me," Aniston explained, referring to reports that some who have had the vaccine have gotten the new Delta variant of the virus.
"I may get slightly sick but I will not be admitted to a hospital and or die," she said. "BUT I CAN give it to someone who does not have the vaccine and whose health is compromised (or has a previous existing condition) - and therefore I would put their lives at risk."
She later posted again, saying "What doesn't kill you mutates and tries again."
This month, it was "The View"
co-host Ana Navarro-Cárdenas who promoted a candle that reads, "If You're Not Vaccinated, Get The F*** Out Of My House."
"I love @gayguycandleco's products,"
the political strategist boasted via Twitter. "Unless you have a LEGITIMATE medical reason, if you're not vaccinated, I don't want to see you, talk to you, work w/you, socialize w/you or know you. It's enough. Your 'personal freedom' is holding the rest of us hostage. It's selfish and stupid."
