He went on, “It has been kicking my ass, just to put it very bluntly. The main thing is I can't walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath or go to the bathroom without sitting down because I'm exhausted.”
The reality star shared the news, not to spread fear or panic, but to encourage people to “stay home” and “do your part.”
For now, he's with Cassie Randolph's family in Huntington Beach. “I'm fortunate to have them,” he said of his girlfriend and her family, adding, “We are all in this together at this point. We will keep you posted, but we are in good spirts.”
In the caption, he wrote, “we got this… I tested positive and I have been following all of the social distancing rules since last week. My symptoms started a few days ago, I was tested and just received my results today. For anyone out there that is hesitant to self quarantine... please do yourself and your loved ones a favor and stay home. We will all beat this and come out stronger on the other side. I'll keep you posted, Love y'all.”
