‘Bachelor’ star Colton Underwood tests positive for coronavirus

Former "Bachelor" Colton Underwood announced he tested positive for the new coronavirus on Friday.

"I tested positive and I have been following all of the social distancing rules since last week", he said in a post.

"If we have it probably a lot of other people out there have it too even if they haven't been tested for it". Colton Underwood will be releasing his new book, The First Time, on March 31 via Gallery Books.

He continued, "It's been kicking my a**, just to put it pretty bluntly". "We'll keep you posted".

The reality star went to her Instagram page to post a video informing her two million followers of her diagnosis, saying, "I got symptomatic a few days ago and got my test results today".

"After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive for Coronavirus", The Watch What Happens Live host wrote on Instagram on Friday.

Underwood appeared on "The Bachelor" in 2019 after he was a contestant on "The Bachelorette" in 2018.

Underwood said he wasn't sharing the severity of his symptoms with the goal of getting others to panic, but to encourage other younger people to take social distancing and other precautionary measures seriously.

He described himself as a 28-year-old healthy male that works out regularly and eats healthy.

Underwood said he was recovering at his girlfriend's family home in Huntington Beach, CA, where they will be self-isolating for the foreseeable future. We've been quarantined for a week now ... "After 2 days in the house, we chose to go play in the waves (don't worry, the beach is pretty empty) and I got stung by a stingray".

To keep Underwood, 28, away from her family, Randolph revealed he is "currently on the third story" and she is "taking care of him by bringing him anything he needs (food, medicine, water, blankets, games)". Randolph noted that her brother had been experiencing chest pains, noting, "I don't know if that's part of it or what".
