Garth Brooks’ daughter, Allie Colleen, has tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus).
Allie Colleen’s Diagnosis
Brooks made the announcement that their entire family was tested for COVID-19 during a press conference on Wednesday (July 30). He also revealed that Colleen tested positive for the virus.
“Her husband works with us every day,” Brooks said during the media event, according to Taste of Country. “So that was the possible scare. So everybody went and got tested, and everybody tested negative, so we were back up and running pretty quick. She quarantined for another fourteen days after her time as well, so she’s feeling great.”
Brooks shared that his daughter’s coronavirus symptoms were mild with a sore throat. “Truth is, as a parent, nobody knows what COVID is going to do in the future,” he added. “So you just watch over them, you pray a lot and hopefully she’ll come out of this thing with just that. That would be wonderful.”
For the first time, Colleen updated fans via Instagram about her diagnosis. “First day back in the gym since COVID,” she wrote alongside a video of walking on a treadmill at a gym. “Been walking evenings to get my lungs back. Do I feel awesome today? No. But happy to be here.”
Prior to her diagnosis, she shared numerous photos and videos of her wearing a face mask. She even pleaded with her followers to be safe and to wear facial coverings.
