Here’s what we know
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are quarantining for two weeks after someone in their camp tested positive for COVID-19. The country superstar couple shared the vague news late Thursday (Feb 11th) evening via social media.
“Due to someone on their team testing positive for COVID-19 and out of an abundance of caution, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are cancelling everything and testing and quarantining for two weeks,” the post says.
The cancelations include guest co-hosting duties for a special Valentine’s Day edition of Ellen that was set to air tomorrow (Fri, Feb 12th). Fans will miss a full band performance of their latest single “Shallow” that was to be featured on the episode.
“Before you do any major television, they have you do pre-tests for COVID, then they have you do the final test,” Brooks tells All Access. “On the pre-test, our small little group all tested negative. On the final test, one of the people that were in our little group tested positive. And, so, they did a second test – that came back positive. So we decided just not to risk anything.”
Brooks’ Inside Studio G and Yearwood’s T’s Coffee Talk on Facebook Live are also canceled for the next two weeks.
Last summer, the pair postponed all livestream events for two weeks due to Brooks’ daughter Allie contracting the virus. As of this writing, neither Brooks nor Yearwood have contracted the virus.
