Corey Taylor‘s wife Alicia has shared an update on her husband’s health after he announced last week that he’d tested positive for COVID-19.

In a tweet posted Sunday evening, Alicia wrote, “Corey is doing well and thanks everyone for the sweet thoughts and messages.”

“Ready to get him home as soon as it’s safe, so I can take care of him!” she added. “He (very luckily) hasn’t lost his sense of taste or smell so I send him stupid amounts of snacks, hydration powders, and yummy desserts.”

Corey revealed the news of his diagnosis last Friday, a day after he concluded a U.S. tour in support of his 2020 debut solo album, CMFT.

“I woke up today and tested positive, and I’m very, very sick,” Taylor said while announcing his scheduled appearance at last weekend’s Michigan pop culture convention Astronomicon would be canceled. He added that he’s vaccinated, and that he “should be OK.”
