As many couples across the country who don’t live together weigh whether or not to quarantine with each other, Rosario Dawson says she and boyfriend Sen. Cory Booker decided to do so separately.
The actress, 40, told Entertainment Tonight that she has been staying with her “high-risk” parents, Isabel and Craig. Her dad is recovering from pancreatic cancer. Booker remains working in Washington, D.C. The decision was a tough one for the couple, who were supposed to be vacationing following the end of the senator’s presidential run.
“He’s been campaigning the whole year and it was just only a couple of months since we started dating,” Dawson said. “So we’ve not really had a really good chunk of time together because of our work and our family and all the other things. It ended up being what was supposed to be our longest time together (is) now our longest period apart from each other. So, that’s definitely been really challenging.”

Dawson confirmed in March 2019 that she and the senator were dating, following months of speculation after Booker told “The Breakfast Club” radio show he had a “boo.” Over a year later, the two are still going strong, even if they can’t be physically together.
“We just gotta make really careful decisions about moving,” Dawson said. “I just want to do anything and everything we can in this next year or year and a half, whatever period it is, of just being as safe as possible. It’s hard to think about when we are going to be flying again and doing anything that was planned. Like plans, what are those? We’re just taking it every day at a time.”
