Bon Jovi keyboardist David Bryan announced he has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).
In a post to his Instagram, Bryan wrote:
“I just got my results back today and tested positive for coronavirus. I’ve been sick for a week and feeling better each day.
Please don’t be afraid!!! It’s the flu, not the plague. I’ve have been quarantined for a week and will for another week. And when I feel better I’ll get tested again to make sure I’m free of this nasty virus.
Please help out each other. This will be over soon… with the help of every American!!”
Bryan joins the likes of Andy Cohen, Idris Elba, Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson as celebrities who have come forward with testing positive for COVID-19.
