UNFD have issued a statement following the news a member of Ocean Grove testing positive for COVID-19 aka coronavirus and urged fans who attended their meet & greets last week to self-isolate for two weeks to prevent the spread of the disease
In a statement on Facebook they said:
We’ve just received unfortunate news that a member of Ocean Grove has tested positive for COVID-19 (Coronavirus). After what was first interpreted as a common headache, he began experiencing other symptoms associated with the virus on Monday, March 16 upon which he was tested. The results have just come back today, and he is currently in good spirits while being treated.
Having just completed a promotional run of meet & greets over the weekend in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, Ocean Grove and UNIFIED felt a social responsibility to share the news immediately. If you attended one of these events, please follow the Australian Government’s advice to self-isolate for 2 weeks to prevent the spread of the virus to other people. In the event you start to experience symptoms associated with COVID-19, please seek medical attention.
Even if you are not experiencing any symptoms and/or did not attend one of the meet & greets, please consider practicing self-distancing and good hygiene to stop the virus from spreading.
We’d like for you to please keep the Ocean Grove guys (and others affected) in your hearts and minds during this time.
We’ll keep you posted…
