Former WWE champion and Hall of Famer Mick Foley revealed Friday that he tested positive for COVID-19 last month.
Foley, 55, was part of a virtual signing on December 12th where he shared a room with two others. One of the people tested positive for the virus, and Foley was tested five days later and was alerted he was positive.
He noted symptoms he has experienced include fatigue, loss of smell, body aches, and affecting his hearing.
He has been isolating in a hotel room for the past eighteen days, which means he missed Christmas and New Year’s with his family and instructed those watching to take the virus seriously. He felt he was very good about being cautious and advocating for mask-wearing but added he could have done better.
Foley noted he cut back dramatically on his events this past year noting four virtual signings he participated in, a pair of reality shows he did, two personal appearances, a commercial, and the appearance at the Survivor Series since March.
We wish Mick a full and speedy recovery from the virus.
I tested positive for COVID following a December virtual signing, and have been isolating in a hotel room for the past 18 days.
Please continue to take this virus seriously – mask up, social distance, look out for one another.
Wishing all of you a happy, healthy new year. pic.twitter.com/WFcM8iuUmi
