EXODUS and SLAYER guitarist Gary Holt has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus.
Holt said he received his results today (Tuesday, March 31), 11 days after he was tested.
The San Francisco Bay Area-based axeman, whose wife was also tested, took to his Instagram earlier today to write: "So I finally received my test results back and positive it was. Lisa's came back negative, and it's been long enough since my symptoms that I am officially in the clear to do the only things I'm allowed, like buy my own groceries! I feel great, made it through the tougher moments, and my health feels 100 percent normal. Thanks to everyone who had wished us well. Now it's time to start working on some new EXODUS riffs while I'm still basically stuck in my house!"
