Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood Self-Quarantining Out of an Abundance of Caution

Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood Self-Quarantining Out of an Abundance of Caution

Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood were getting ready to step in as co-hosts for The Ellen DeGeneres Show when they got some unexpected news…which they shared on social media.

“Due to someone on their team testing positive for Covid-19 and out of an abundance of caution, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are canceling everything and testing and quarantining for two weeks.”

Garth explains how this positive test was caught, “Before you do any major television, they have you do pre-tests for COVID, then they have you do the final test. On the pre-test, our small little group all tested negative. On the final test, one of the people that were in our little group tested positive. And, so, they did a second test – that came back positive. So we decided just not to risk anything – we cancelled everything for the next two weeks. The Queen and I will be quarantining…living on love…and testing every 72 hours. And our thoughts and prayers are with the one person in this group that has already tested positive…and hope that’s as far as it goes, and hopefully we get past this thing.”

While their Friday appearance on The Ellen Show will not happen — tWitch stepped in as guest-host to welcome guests Ciara and Russell Wilson — you will still be able to check out Garth and Trisha on Sunday Night’s NBC special, Grand Ole Opry: 95 Years of Country Music, as that was pre-recorded before this positive test. Garth’s weekly Facebook Live Studio G sessions will also be postponed due this this result.

We wish Garth and Trish well, and a speedy recovery to their team member that did have the positive test.

Trisha Yearwood Tests Positive For COVID – but “On Her Way Out of the Tunnel” Now

Trisha Yearwood Tests Positive For COVID – but “On Her Way Out of the Tunnel” Now

A couple of weeks ago Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood announced they were going into quarantine because one of their team members tested positive for COVID.

As fans expected to the see the super star couple resume their public events, news comes that their isolation will last a bit longer as Trisha has now also tested positive. Garth is testing negative as of now.

Speaking on the matter, Garth says “The Queen and I have now tested twice.” In regards to Trisha’s diagnosis, Garth shares, “Officially, she’s diagnosed as ‘on her way out of the tunnel’ now, though, which I’m extremely thankful for.”

The snow and ice storm that the Nashville area experienced last week prevented the couple from getting tested until almost a week after their initial exposure; once they did, they continued to quarantine together.

Garth shared “Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together, and anyone who knows her knows she’s a fighter and she’s been doing everything right, so I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.” Garth fully admits, “She’s tough. She’s stronger than me.”

Garth says, though he welcomes any prayers and good thoughts anyone wants to send Trisha’s way. “If anyone asks, that’s what you can do for her. That’s what I’m doing. Living with her, I sometimes take it for granted she’s one of the greatest voices in all of music, so the possible long-term effects on her concern me as her husband and as a fan,” Garth continues. “We’re very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers.”
