Shemar Moore has tested positive for COVID-19.
The 50-year-old actor shared on Instagram on Thursday that he initially thought he had food poisoning, and then got symptoms including chills and aches, but is now feeling better.
“Just found out moments ago… I am gonna stay wrapping presents… Yes… I have been tested and told that I HAVE COVID!!!” he said on Instagram.
As of the time of his posting, Moore still had his senses of taste and smell and didn’t have any respiratory problems.
“I feel fine now… but I have to be responsible!!!” he wrote. “My Xmas n New Years is clearly not gonna be the best… my last year and a a half has not been the best… but I WILL BE OKAY!!!”
It is unclear what Moore is referring to, but he suffered the loss of his “The Young and the Restless” co-star Kristoff St. John in February 2019.
“I’m raised an only child, but Kristoff is truly the closest thing to a brother and a brother’s love and a brother’s mentorship that I’ve ever known,” Moore said at the time of his friend’s death.
