Palin tested positive for COVID-19 in March 2021.

At the time, she urged people to take steps to guard against the coronavirus, such as wearing masks in public.

"Through it all, I view wearing that cumbersome mask indoors in a crowd as not only allowing the newfound luxury of being incognito, but trust it’s better than doing nothing to slow the spread," Palin told People magazine at the time.

She now says she has natural immunity and does not need the vaccine.
