The 79-year-old singer said he tested positive for coronavirus on July 5, even after following COVID-19 guidelines, and is now in self-quarantine at home.
“I wore a mask, washed my hands often, and kept my social distance,” he said in the video. “This is just a reminder of how contagious this virus is.”
Little Joe added a warning to others during this current COVID-19 pandemic that has seen a recent rise in positive cases throughout Texas and the United States.
“Remember, if you feel you have the systems, flu-like symptoms, have yourself tested,” he said. “It’s not just about you, but those around you, your family, your friends, your loved ones. You have to protect yourself to protect others. We all have to protect one another.”
According to a subsequent social media post, “The King of the Brown Sound” is doing well and will keep fans informed on his health progress. He is very grateful and appreciative of concerns and asks for privacy during the quarantine.
Little Joe released his eighth live concert album Better Than Ever on May 29 and a book about his life and over half a century legendary music career titled No Llore Chingon! An American Story: The life of Little Joe on May 13.
