Brandon Hoover, guitarist for metalcore band Crown the Empire, says that he's tested positive for the coronavirus and is currently at home under self-quarantine.
"Welp…I tested positive for the Coronavirus. I’ve been told to self-quarantine for 14 days (or until further notice). I believe I contracted it through traveling to all these different countries over the past couple of months, but honestly who the f--k knows, it could of happened anywhere," Hoover tweeted on Monday (March 16).
The guitarist said he started getting a sore throat, congestion and fatigue about a week ago and then quickly developed severe body aches and a 102 degree fever. "I was in bed for a couple of days sleeping in puddles of my own sweat. Honestly I thought I just had the flu!," he wrote. "So I went to the emergency room and got tested for that as well as the Coronavirus and got my results back last night confirming that I have it.
