Trisha Yearwood has tested positive for COVID-19. 

The news comes nearly two weeks after Yearwood and her husband, fellow country superstar Garth Brooks, revealed that they were canceling all scheduled appearances after someone in their camp tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Yearwood has contracted the virus, while Brooks remains negative. 

“The Queen and I have now tested twice,” Brooks confirms, adding, “Officially, she’s diagnosed as ‘on her way out of the tunnel’ now, though, which I’m extremely thankful for.” 

The winter storm in Tennesee delayed their testing. Now, they are quarantining together. 

“Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together,” he shares.

Brooks also explained that he will remain out of the spotlight for the time being to be by her side.

“And anyone who knows her knows she’s a fighter and she’s been doing everything right, so I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together,” he adds. 

Yearwood is reportedly okay, however, she is dealing with symptoms. 

“She’s tough. She’s stronger than me,” Garth says, adding that they welcoming prayers for Yearwood. “If anyone asks, that’s what you can do for her. That’s what I’m doing,” he says.

“Living with her, I sometimes take it for granted she’s one of the greatest voices in all of music, so the possible long-term effects on her concern me as her husband and as a fan,” he continues. “We’re very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers.”
