Gary Holt (Exodus, Slayer) confirms COVID-19 diagnosis

Exodus and Slayer guitar player Gary Holt has revealed that he's tested positive for COVID-19. Holt was tested 11 days ago and finally received his results within the last day. Fortunately, Holt has essentially recovered from his illness. Holt had this to say via a since-deleted Instagram post:
"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!"
