Brian did not elaborate further on his symptoms but said that he was good. 

He wrote on Instagram: "Sometime we take things for granted and we think some of the bad things that happen in the world would not affect us until it's on your door step. A few days ago I tested positive for COVID-19, when I thought it would be something that wouldn't even get close to me [sic]."  

He added that he was especially fearful after learning that an industry friend had died from the coronavirus.
