“As careful as I’ve been self-quarantining, staying home, I might’ve went got something to eat…nothing crazy…stayed in my truck, had [a] mask, gloves, everything on, and my test came back positive.”
He added, “Y’all gotta take this stuff serious. Sit home. Self-quarantine. Do not come outside for however long they saying. If you have symptoms, you need to go get checked out.”
