Bialik expressed regret for taking her mask off “ever” outside, and revealed that COVID has zapped her energy.

“The exhaustion is very special. I had mononucleosis when I was in college, and it’s a little bit like the exhaustion hits like that, where you cannot be awake,” she said in her Monday video. “You can try to be awake, but all of a sudden, it’s just like, you need to sleep.”
