Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are COVID-free!

The superstars were potentially exposed to the novel coronavirus and were forced to postpone their Facebook Live concert to self-quarantine.

“While Garth and Trisha are fine, the Garth/Trisha camp has possibly been exposed to the Covid-19 virus,” Brooks’ publicist shared on July 6. “To be smart about this, they are all quarantining for two weeks and thank everyone for their concern.”

On Monday (July 13), Brooks returned to his weekly Facebook Live, Inside Studio G, where he revealed that he and Yearwood tested negative for the virus.

“We all tested. Everybody tested negative, including the possible exposure, which ended up not being a possible exposure…So we’re back,” the superstar shared.

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood will go live tonight, Tuesday, July 14, to take requests from fans during #GarthRequestLive2. The feed, which begins at 7pm ET, will be live for 24 hours.
