WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley tested positive for COVID-19. He made this announcement during a post on Friday night. He believes that he was exposed to the virus during a December 12th virtual signing. He has a good update for fans.
The 55-year-old Foley is getting out of quarantine. He is no longer contagious and has gotten over the virus. This was a real eye-opening situation and he pleaded with people to be responsible and wear their masks.
Foley also took the opportunity to explain his symptoms and the timeline of his illness. Thankfully, Mick Foley seems to be doing better.
I tested positive for the coronavirus following a December 12 virtual signing. As soon as I learned that I had been exposed and even before the test result, I began isolating in a hotel room – and have been here for 19 days. I am no longer contagious and will be checking out tomorrow. Fortunately, my symptoms were not too serious – body aches and headache for a few days, followed by loss of my sense of smell and just within the last few days, my hearing has been affected.
Worse than the physical symptoms was missing the holidays with my family – Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s. I tried to do my best to be safe these past ten months, but looking back on it, there were a number of occasions where I did let my guard down. Since mid-March, I have only done four virtual signings, two personal appearances, two guest appearances on reality shows and my appearance on WWE Raw at The Undertaker’s farewell. In 2019, I flew 150,000 miles on Delta Airlines – in addition to tens of thousands more on other airlines. In 2020, I flew less than 10,000. Still, there were several occasions where I could have been more careful. Moving forward, I will do my best to do better. I hope all of us can do a little better for as long as it takes to put this terrible pandemic behind us.
I appreciate all the well wishes and prayers that I have always received on social media. I’m lucky… things could have been worse.
In a little bit of good news, enthusiasm on Cameo in December resulted in my being able to donate $5,000 to the Daniela Conte Foundation – a foundation created by the parents of a very special little girl who was lost way too soon.
Foley’s airmiles went from 150,000 in 2019 to less than 10,000 in 2020. That is a big difference and 2021 doesn’t seem to be booking up very fast at all either. Hopefully, there are much brighter days ahead for everyone. That could certainly see Foley add more miles to his travel schedule this year.
