Exodus and Slayer guitarist Gary Holt was tested and found positive for COVID-19. The guitarist received his results yesterday (Tuesday, March 31), 11 days after he was tested. Gary Holt announced being tested on his official account on Instagram and he announced also being positive there too.

“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!”
