"The perfect post norovirus #ootd. Basically chic PJ's," she captioned the photo. Norovirus is also called the "winter vomiting bug" and is described as a "stomach bug that causes vomiting and diarrhea. It can be very unpleasant, but usually goes away in about two days".

Julianne appears to be over the worst of her illness as she later shared a video of herself dancing in her dressing room backstage at her Broadway show, POTUS. "Ain't no norovirus can keep me from getting to all of you babes," she captioned the fun clip.

The play is described as a "riotous comedy about the women in charge of the man in charge of the free world".

POTUS has been praised by critics and fans, and Julianne recently received a standing ovation when her character made a passionate plea about healthcare.
