Joe Rogan tested positive for COVID-19 last week. Rogan was isolated from his family before testing positive and has since recovered. A couple of days ago, the 54-year-old podcaster confirmed that he had tested negative on Instagram.
He recounted his COVID experiences in a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience.
"I got better pretty quick! When I woke up in the morning, I was definitely hungover. But I was also feeling a little out of it and not good. It's hard to describe! If I had COVID, it was just like beginning stages... When I got home, I was like something just feels off. I told my wife you should probably keep away from me, let me isolate. In the middle of the night, I was sweating and got fever. I wasn't feeling good. I woke up in the morning and knew it was 90% COVID. I got tested and turned out positive. This was Sunday... On Monday, I felt pretty good. I rested, didn't do sh** but watch TV. I actually enjoyed the first couple of days because this is like a legit, solid excuse where I don't have to do anything," said Joe Rogan.
