Corey Taylor is ‘Very, Very Sick’ After Tested Positive For COVID-19

Corey Taylor has revealed that he has been tested positive for COVID-19.

 As a result of his diagnosis, Slipknot and Stone Sour will be unable to appear at the Astronomicon eclectic pop culture convention in Ann Arbor, Michigan this weekend.

Corey said in a video: “I wish I had better news. I woke up today and tested positive, and I’m very, very sick. So I’m not gonna be able to make it this weekend. And I am absolutely devastated. I am so sorry. I hope everyone has a good time, and I promise you I will absolutely try to get back there as soon as I can. I should be okay — it’s the flu.

“I’m vaccinated, so I’m not worried,” he added. “But I certainly wouldn’t want to spread it to anyone else. So, everybody be safe out there. And thank you so much. And I will see you again, I promise.”

The Astronomicon organizers added in a message: “Maintaining everyone’s health and safety is paramount in these times. COVID is no joke and can effect anyone, even those who have been vaccinated. Sadly, this includes celebrities. We have just received news via this video message from Corey Taylor, who will sadly no longer be able to make it this weekend. We wish Corey a speedy recovery and we urge everyone to remain vigilant. If you’re coming to Astronomicon, please remember to wear a mask to keep yourself and everyone at the event safe.”
