Black Veil Brides guitarist Jinxx (Jeremy Ferguson) has tested positive for coronavirus.
The guitarist revealed the news in a statement via his social media on Wednesday (Nov. 18).
Jinxx explained that he first got sick last weekend saying: “Last Saturday, I woke up feeling extremely rundown, feverish and had a nasty cold, I didn’t hesitate to take my family down to get tested right away. We got our results back Sunday night.”
He continued, “Monday night, the fever lifted, but I had lost my sense of taste and smell. The cough had moved into my lungs and last night noticed tightness in my chest, did some breathing exercises and it eased up. Today, I’m just really tired and dizzy. Hoping the worst of it has passed.”
“I just wanted to say to everyone to continue to stay safe and PLEASE wear a mask! No matter how annoying it is,” the guitarist said. “And take this seriously. This is no hoax and cases are spiking everywhere, and no one is immune. And just because you got a negative result doesn’t make you immune or mean you may not have just contracted it. So be cautious and maybe think twice about travel and gathering plans over the holidays.”
