More stars are taking to social media to share their stories and encourage fans to stay at home and practice social distancing. The number of celebrities with Coronavirus keeps growing. Today, former Bachelor star and NFL player Colton Underwood announced he has contracted it too.
He gave an update on an Instagram video today. "I want to let you guys know: I’m 28, I consider myself pretty healthy, I work out regularly, I eat healthy, and I became symptomatic a few days ago, got my test results back today, and they are positive."
He added that the virus is making him tired, and he feels wiped out from simple activities like walking up a flight of stairs.
To do his part in self-isolating, the season 23 star of The Bachelor is staying inside his girlfriend, Cassie Randolph's home in Huntington Beach.
Colton and Cassie met during his time on the reality show.
He went on to say, "I’m doing okay, I’m at Cassie’s family’s house in Huntington [Beach, California], so I’m fortunate to have them. Unfortunately, that means we’re all in this together, at this point."
According to Colton, his symptoms started a few days ago. He was tested and received his results back today.
In his latest post, he encourages fans to take the situation seriously.
He wrote, "Please do yourself and your loved ones a favor and stay home. We will all beat this and come out stronger on the other side. I’ll keep you posted. Love y’all."
Last week, the two took a local beach trip where Cassie got stung in the foot by a ray. He shared a video of her soaking her feet in an ice bucket while trying to distract herself with a game of Uno.
From the looks of things, she's doing better, and she's helping take care of Colton too.
His announcement came shortly after Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Idris Elba, and Daniel Dae Kim confirmed they have Coronavirus. Andy Cohen also revealed he tested positive and temporarily suspended planning for his show.
