Aaron shared a picture of his dog Miles and captioned the post as, “Hey everyone. I just wanted to update you all that I’ve found out that I’ve tested positive for Covid-19. I’ve been in quarantine since Broadway shows shut down on Thursday, March 12th, and I’m feeling much better. I consider myself extremely lucky that my symptoms have been very mild – cold-like with no fever – as so many are experiencing much more serious symptoms because this is a very dangerous virus”.
