Reverend Jesse Jackson and his wife Jacqueline, remain hospitalized with COVID-19 Monday at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Their son, Jonathan Jackson, shared an update on his parent's condition Sunday with ABC7.
"She had been real lethargic with flu-like symptoms [and] went to the hospital Friday," he said. "Then it was diagnosed that she and my dad both had contracted COVID."
According to the family, the couple is now resting comfortably and responding positively to treatment.
"She is having some oxygen, but is able to function and breathe on her own without a respirator," Jonathan said. "Nothing severe. Because of her age and her current health, it is more challenging."
Reverend Jackson, who is 79, was fully vaccinated back in January, receiving two does of the Pfizer vaccine.
