Alex Gonzaga is certain that she and her family members contracted COVID-19 from a person living with them. It can be remembered that Alex said this in her "COVID-19 journey" vlog, and she reiterated it once again after a netizen on Twitter asked her last October 24 if she was indeed sure that that is where she got the virus.

"Paano mo naman nasabi na sa kanya ka talaga nahawa? I mean, sobrang specific naman? Ang daming pwedeng maging cause kung saan pwede mahawa or maging carrier," a netizen asked on Twitter.
Alex then explained that she and her family utilized contract tracing. She claimed that it would have been impossible that she got the virus from work — she did a shoot in Nueva Ecija recently — since she tested negative before she came home.
"Meron po tinatawag na contact tracing. Kakauwi ko lang galing Nueva Ecija shoot at kakatapos lang swab namin at nag-negative ako. May una lumabas ang symptoms at lahat kausap niya after three days lumabas symptoms. Ako, since asymptomatic Mommy Pinty, sa kanya ako nahawa," she explained.
She continued in another tweet, "The first time we did swab testing nag positive na sila plus mommy. Kami—Mikee (Morada) and Daddy (Bonoy)—nag-negative pa but we knew nahawa na rin kami if my mom has it since we eat together. So before our second test nag-quarantine na rin kami and nag-positive kami. We always do swab test for work."
Now fully recovered, Alex emphasized the importance of being selfless during this pandemic for the benefit of everyone.
"My real takeaway after my COVID-19 journey is during this pandemic, let's all be selfless. Let's stop thinking about ourselves first and think about the people around us kung paano natin sila pwede maapektuhan. If you take care of yourself you are caring for other people too," she said in a tweet.
