As careful as I’ve been self-quarantining, staying home–I might have did and went got something to eat or something or did some stuff like that. Simple stuff like that, nothing crazy. Stayed in my truck, had [my]mask, gloves, everything on and my test came back positive.”
He continued: “So y’all gotta take this stuff seriously. Sit home, self-quarantine, do not come outside for however long they’re saying. If you have symptoms, you need to go get checked out or whatever. I’m good, I feel good. I don’t got no problems right now. The other day I had a slight fever and a cough; I feel better now. I have no fever or nothing like that so I feel like I’m good, though. Y’all better take it seriously, it’s real out here.”
