Sturgill Simpson has announced on Instagram that he has tested positive for coronavirus COVID-19. He details out that he was out on tour with Tyler Childers earlier this year before the shows were cancelled and he was sent home, but he started to notice issues right away. The scarier part is that he couldn’t get tested until very recently, and only got his test results about a month after first noticing the issues.

Almost one month later on April 6th my wife and I were both tested after finally finding a free drive-thru testing facility outside a National Guard depot. Yesterday on Friday April 10th, after almost one month without any symptoms, I received a call from the Nashville CDC stating that my test resulted in a positive detection for Covid-19. My wife (who has been by my side since Europe) tested negative.
