"You try to trust that people are vaccinated," he said.
Slipknot singer and solo star Corey Taylor has been very adamant over the past few months that COVID-19 is serious business. Two weeks ago, he revealed in a message to fans that he had tested positive for the highly contagious coronavirus and that he was "very, very sick."
He announced at the time that he would not be able to make it to that weekend's Astronomicon event in Ann Arbor, Michigan, saying he was "absolutely devastated... I am so sorry. I hope everyone has a good time and I promise you, I will absolutely try to get back there as soon as I can.”
Over the weekend, Taylor -- who noted that he's fully vaccinated in an earlier message -- dove further into the story behind his illness in a video he recorded for the pop culture festival in which he chatted with a fan about the battle with the novel coronavirus that had him quarantined in a Denver hotel room going stir-crazy. “I try to keep my mask up the entire time," he said of his safety precautions while on the road earlier this summer on his CMFT solo tour.
