Exodus Guitarist Gary Holt Tested Positive For COVID-19


Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has officially received a positive test result for COVID-19. Both Holt and his wife got tested earlier this month after displaying various symptoms. While Gary came back positive, his wife Lisa did not. Gary commented via social media on a since-deleted Instagram post:

“So I finally received my test results back and positive it was. Lisa’s came back negative, and it’s been long enough since my symptoms that I am officially in the clear to do the only things I’m allowed, like buy my own groceries! I feel great, made it through the tougher moments, and my health feels 100 percent normal. Thanks to everyone who had wished us well. Now it’s time to start working on some new Exodus riffs while I’m still basically stuck in my house!”

Gary experienced moderate symptoms of the disease and as he stated, is thought to have since recovered from it.

He and members of Testament and Death Angel all contracted the disease amid returning from their European tour together earlier this month. In addition to members of their road crews showing symptoms, Testament frontman Chuck Billy and his wife Tiffany both tested positive for the disease. Likewise, Death Angel drummer Will Carroll also received a positive diagnosis and wound up in ICU on a ventilator.
