The metal community isn’t immune to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and the latest metal band to be impacted by the virus is Testament.

The California thrash metal band took to social media today (March 22) to announce that band members haven’t been feeling well since returning from their recent European tour. Now, one of them has officially been diagnosed with COVID-19: Chuck Billy and his wife, Tiffany. Some crew members have also tested positive for the virus.

“We wanted to reach out to everyone who has been supporting us and expressing concern to inform you that we are doing what’s right, and what’s safe and have all been quarantining ourselves since our return home, since before we were even tested,” the band said in a statement.

They added, “We are of course concerned for our families, our friends, our crew, our fellow musicians, and our fans. We’ve reached out to support our fellow Bay Area Bands who are also being proactive in their own camps, staying quarantined and safe, and will speak on their individual situations if and when they are ready to.”

Band members say they are “currently focused on staying safe and quarantined, resting, getting ourselves back to health, and of course, sending well wishes, prayers, and positive energy towards our friends who are also sick.”

The statement concludes, “We also want to send well wishes to all of our fans and supporters in this time of crisis. We’re taking all the necessary steps to stay safe at home and we ask our friends and fans to do the same. Please take care of each other, and stay healthy so we can continue to thrash in the not so distant future!”

Testament’s upcoming tour is on hold due to COVID-19.
