Trisha Yearwood is the latest celebrity to test positive for COVID-19.
A health update from the country music superstar and husband Garth Brooks on Wednesday (Feb. 24) noted that the power couple began quarantining at home following positive coronavirus test by a member of their team.
Brooks, fortunately, has tested negative.
“The Queen and I have now tested twice,” he said in a statement , adding, “Officially, she’s diagnosed as ‘on her way out of the tunnel’ now, though, which I’m extremely thankful for.”
“Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together,” he continued, noting that he’ll be spending some time laying low, pausing his weekly Inside Studio G conversation on Facebook for the time being. “And anyone who knows her knows she’s a fighter and she’s been doing everything right, so I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.”
While Yearwood is doing alright, Brooks asked for prayers and good thoughts from fans, as she is still experiencing symptoms. “If anyone asks, that’s what you can do for her. That’s what I’m doing,” he said. “Living with her, I sometimes take it for granted she’s one of the greatest voices in all of music, so the possible long-term effects on her concern me as her husband and as a fan. We’re very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers.”
Back in July, Brooks shared that his 24-year-old daughter Allie Colleen had a mild case of the coronavirus. Later that month, Brooks and Yearwood postponed their July 7 Facebook concert due to potential exposure. “While Garth and Trisha are fine, the Garth/Trisha camp has possibly been exposed to the Covid-19 virus. To be smart about this, they are all quarantining for 2 weeks and thank everyone for their concern,” a press release announcing the postponement read.
