Country legend Joe Diffie is the latest celebrity to test positive for coronavirus. The singer released a statement about his condition on Friday afternoon (3/27).

“I am under the care of medical professionals and currently receiving treatment. My family and I are asking for privacy at this time,” he said in a press release. We want to remind the public and all my fans to be vigilant, cautious and careful during this pandemic.”

The crooner previously posted about the pandemic, addressing fans about the numerous concert cancellations sweeping the planet.

“I just want to say to all the fans, the show cancellations are not my idea of a good time,” he wrote. “Promoters, venues etc are postponing these events, as expected with everything going on. These shows that are postponed are affecting all of us musicians and our bands, crews, drivers, etc. Please pray for all of us and hope we can get America back on track and back to normal. We definitely will miss all of the fans and we plan on rescheduling any shows postponed! Thanks for being the greatest fans ever! Stay well and see you out there soon!!”

Diffie joins others including Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks, Idris Elba, Prince Charles and others who have all tested positive for the virus and are currently in recovery.
