Good news Betty White fans ... more than a year into a pandemic and the Hollywood legend's still healthy and safe at home, but she's looking forward to summer when she can safely enjoy the outdoors and regain her freedom.
Betty's been keeping herself busy at home reading, watching TV and doing crossword puzzles ... so says her rep, Jeff Witjas. We're told there's one thing the pandemic has severely affected in her life ... her ability to regularly interact with friends face-to-face.
We're told, however, she still pens plenty of letters, makes phone calls and has limited visits with friends and loved ones through the window of her home.
Betty has always been a champion for animals, but currently has no house pets, so that's an empty spot in her life ... especially for a senior who is isolated from friends and family. She does, however, have a couple ducks on her property that we're told walk up to her door every day to say hello.
As for whether or not 99-year-old Betty's been vaccinated, Witjas is mum, saying it's a personal matter.
We're told it's unclear if and when Betty will ever return to work. But, after a Hollywood career that's spanned 60-plus years ... a break is well-deserved.
As we first reported .... Betty took COVID seriouslyduring the pandemic. She rarely left her home. Someone did her grocery shopping and ran errands for her, so she rarely left the house.
