Trisha Yearwood has tested positive for COVID-19. The country legend and her husband, Garth Brooks, have been quarantining together at their home in Tennessee after being exposed to a crew member with the coronavirus several days ago but were only able to get tested recently. According to a statement to Fox News, the "severe winter weather in Tennessee" delayed the process. Brooks' results were negative but he has chosen to still quarantine with Yearwood.

"Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together," the star said. "And anyone who knows [Yearwood] 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."

Brooks explained that he and Yearwood have been tested twice and that his wife was showing "some symptoms" but was otherwise "doing OK."

"She’s tough. She’s stronger than me," Brooks continued, adding that he was concerned about how the long-term effects of the virus could impact Yearwood's musical career.

"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 said. "We’re very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers."

Yearwood joins an increasing list of celebrities to have tested positive for COVID-19. Most recently, Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that she had contracted the virus at the start of the pandemic.

"I had COVID-19 early on, and it left me with some long-tail fatigue and brain fog," she wrote in a post to the website of her company Goop. "In January, I had some tests done that showed really high levels of inflammation in my body. So I turned to one of the smartest experts I know in this space, the functional medicine practitioner Dr. Will Cole. After he saw all my labs, he explained that this was a case where the road to healing was going to be longer than usual."
