The Bachelor Star Colton Underwood Reveals Diagnosis

“So, there’s a lot of information going out in the news and media right now about [the] coronavirus, saying it’s for the elderly or young people don’t want to do this,” Underwood shared in an Instagram post with his two million followers. “I wanted to let you guys know I’m 28 and I consider myself pretty healthy. I work out. I eat healthy. I became symptomatic as of a few days ago. I got my tests back today.

“And they are positive [for the coronavirus],” Underwood continued. “It’s been kicking my [butt], to put it very bluntly. The main thing is I can’t walk up a flight of [stairs] without getting out of breath or go to the bathroom without having to sit down because I’m exhausted. I guess the reason I’m sharing this is not to cause fear or panic but to hopefully encourage you guys to stay home.

“I’m doing okay,” he adds. “I’m at Cass’ house…I’m fortunate to have them; unfortunately, it means we’re all in this together at this point. We’ll keep you posted. We’re in good spirits and I just want to encourage everybody to stay at home and stay in your house. Do your part and take care of one another, all right? Love you guys.”

Underwood’s girlfriend, Cassie Randolph, posted: “Love you ❤️.” Also, #BachelorNation fan Chrishell Stause (ex-Jordan, Days of our Lives) wrote: “Oh nooooo so sorry!!! Hope you get better asap 🥺🙏🏼.”

Randolph endured her own health malady recently when she was stung by a stingray (owie). Underwood posted: “while we were in isolation yesterday we decided to take a quick trip to the ocean and swim. It was cut short after a sting ray stung @cassierandolph in the foot. Mother Nature sent us a warning shot to get back inside 😉…

“I tried to take her mind off of it by playing UNO (It did not work). Thank you all for your prayers and concerns… after about 5 hours of pain and a weird reaction to the venom…Cass is doing much better ♥️ stay safe y’all!” For information on the coronavirus and COVID-19 check out the Center for Disease Control website at CDC.gov.
