“Hey guys. I just wanted to let you know that I’ve contracted the COVID-19 but I’ve self-isolated myself for the past week. And I’ve been taking care of myself and following the doctor’s instructions.
“This is just a reminder for you all to stay at home, take care of the people you love and help us all to not spread this disease.
“Stay home and stay safe.”
