Hugh Jackman tests positive for COVID

Australian actor and singer Hugh Jackman says he’s tested positive for COVID-19.

Jackman has shared a Twitter post saying he will be unable to perform in The Music Man on Broadway in New York.

“I just wanted you to hear it from me that I tested positive this morning for COVID,” the actor said in a shared video.


“My symptoms are like a cold … a scratchy throat and a bit of a runny nose but I’m fine. I’m just going to do everything I can to get better ASAP and as soon as I’m cleared I’ll be back on stage.

“Please stay safe, be healthy, be kind,” Jackman said.
