Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line posted a COVID-19 infographic on his Instagram story earlier this morning. The graphic shows the effectiveness of wearing masks.

Hubbard posted the graphic to his story after having previously tested positive for COVID-19. He spent 13 days quarantining in his tour bus in the driveway of his home. He celebrated being COVID-19 free yesterday.

The graphic shows a transmission rate of up to 90 percent for two people interacting without masks on. The transmission rate can be as high as 60 percent if one person is talking without a mask even if the other person is wearing one. It’s 30 percent if the person talking is wearing a mask, and only 5 percent if both parties are wearing a mask.

Finally, in a bit of a joke, the graphic notes there is a zero-percent chance to catch the virus if you speed away on a motorcycle.

He captioned the image “it’s proven.”

Tyler Hubbard Contracted COVID-19 in Early November

Hubbard discovered he tested positive for COVID-19 in early November. To prevent spreading the virus to his wife and daughter, Hubbard moved a tour bus into the driveway of his home. The singer quarantined in the tour bus for the duration of the illness until he was symptom-free.

In a series of social media posts, Hubbard hinted to fans that he may have contracted the virus. He first revealed the tour bus, asking fans if they knew why he might have parked it in the driveway. He then confirmed that he contracted the virus.

Hubbard wrote, “Some of y’all guessed it….. Got the Rona. Asymptomatic. Quarantining on bus. Miss my family. Writing songs. Thankful.”

While quarantining, Hubbard spent the time writing new songs. He also continued to post updates regarding his health on social media.

“Good morning everybody, a quick update from the bus. I’m feeling okay,” Hubbard wrote in an Instagram story. “I woke up this morning for the first time and was like ‘okay, this is real. This is real. I can feel it in my head. I just wanted to say thank you to everybody for all of the prayers, messages and everybody that’s checked in on me. It means a lot.”

Hubbard Celebrates Being ‘COVID Free’

Hubbard celebrated being COVID-19 free yesterday by sitting around the dinner table again.

He shared the heart-warming family photo on Instagram. In the photo, Hubbard sat around the dinner table with his wife and three children. In celebration of the good news, all four, minus newborn Atlas, threw their hands up in excitement.

Hubbard wrote, “After 13 days of being on the tour bus in the driveway, I’m finally covid free and back in the house. Family dinner never felt so good. So thankful.”
