Jackson Browne Tests Positive For COVID-19
Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
The 71-year-old Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame inductee told Rolling Stone he was tested for the virus after he developed a cough and fever after returning to L.A. from a charity gig in New York City.
“My symptoms are really pretty mild, so I don’t require any kind of medication and certainly not hospitalization or anything like that,” said Browne, who self-quarantined as soon as he felt ill.
The “Take it Easy” singer said a lot of people might have COVID-19 and not know it, meaning they can inadvertently pass it on to others. Browne said young people especially need to heed the advice of experts.
“They need to take part in the global response to stop the spread,” he said. “That means not going anywhere, not getting into contact with anybody, not seeing anybody.
“They can spread this disease by not taking it seriously. They can spread it to somebody by presuming they won’t have any adverse effects themselves, and they can therefore keep partying and going where they want to go. It’s just not true.”
