Underwood, who appeared in Season 23 of ABC’s “The Bachelor” in 2019, urged others to self-quarantine for their own good and the good of their loved ones.
“For those wondering what my symptoms are: headache, body aches, night sweats, fever, shortness of breath and a cough,” Underwood tweeted. “Currently I get winded doing simple tasks like walking up the stairs getting out of bed.”
Underwood said he is self-isolating in Huntington Beach, California, at his girlfriend’s family home.
“I tend to be a pretty optimistic person and I look for silver linings in situations,” he wrote on social media. “My thought today: ironically our earth will probably be the cleanest and healthiest it’s been in a very long time after these next few months.”
