I just wanted to update you all that I've found out that I've tested positive for COVID - 19. I've been in quarantine since Broadway shows shut down on Thursday (March 12) and I'm feeling much better." He added, "I consider myself extremely lucky that my symptoms have been very mild - cold with no fever - as so many are experiencing much more serious symptoms because this is a very dangerous virus."

In his post, Aaron stated that he has been experiencing loss of taste and smell. "One thing I have been experiencing is the loss of taste and smell, which I think, is a big sign for people who are otherwise asymptotic," he wrote.

Hey everyone. I just wanted to update you all that I've found out that I've tested positive for Covid-19. I've been in quarantine since Broadway shows shut down on Thursday, March 12th, and I'm feeling much better. I consider myself extremely lucky that my symptoms have been very mild - cold like with no fever - as so many are experiencing much more serious symptoms, because this is a very dangerous virus. One thing I have been experiencing is the loss of taste and smell, which I think is a big sign for people who are otherwise asymptotic. I was tested last Monday, and just found out the results, however, I have been taking this situation extremely seriously, even before I was tested. I want everyone to realize that this can affect anyone. And even if you aren't feeling sick or showing drastic symptoms - please take heed, stay safe, stay healthy and I hope to see everyone at the theater again soon. And I wanted to post this with a picture of Miles because, they're loving all this extra time at home with their Humans!
