Arie Luyendyk Jr. has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
On Thursday, the former Bachelor, 39, shared in a video on Instagram Stories that he was diagnosed with COVID-19 “nine days ago,” saying that the experience has been “rough” for both him and wife Lauren Burnham.
“Many of you have been wondering why we haven’t done Bachelor Brunch, why we’ve been so absent on social media and why I’m sitting like 25 feet away from the girls. It’s ’cause I actually tested positive for COVID,” Luyendyk Jr. begins. “Tomorrow, I get to go in and see if I’m clear.”
“It’s been rough. I gotta say, it’s not been easy being separated,” he continues.
