The 50-year-old Criminal Minds star confirmed the diagnosis on Thursday (December 24) on his Instagram in a snapshot of a text exchange.
“I HAVE COVID!!!! Just found out moments ago…. I am gonna stay wrapping presents… Yes… I have been tested and told that I HAVE COVID!!!” he wrote.
He added that he thought he had food poisoning at first due to “chills and aches all day,” but he still has his sense of smell and taste and “no cough, no runny nose.”
“I have to accept test results… I feel fine now… but I have to be responsible!!!! My Xmas n New Years is clearly not gonna be the best… my last year and a half has not been the best… but I WILL BE OKAY!!!!” he added.
“This is a hard time for ALL OF US… the WORLD!!! But… I BELIEVE in the sun shining through the rain!!! Stay safe and appreciate everything and everybody you have and had!! MUCH LOVE!!!!”
He ended his note with the hashtag “wear a mask.”
