While the past week has been incredibly exciting for Black Veil Brides fans with the release of the band's epic new single Scarlet Cross, behind the scenes one of their members has been suffering with the nasty effects of coronavirus.

Taking to social media to warn followers about COVID-19 and encourage everyone to continue to stay safe throughout this pandemic, guitarist Jinxx writes, "Last Saturday, I woke up feeling extremely rundown, feverish and had a nasty cough. I didn't hesitate to take my family down to get tested right away. We got our results back late Sunday night. @moggycatz and @mommajinxx came back negative, mine positive.

"Immediately we began quarantining in separate rooms. So far, Alice and Lennon are showing no symptoms, waiting on a second test results for my mom. Monday night the fever lifted, but I had lost my sense of taste and smell. The cough had moved into my lungs and last night noticed tightness in my chest, did some breathing exercises and it eased up. Today I'm just really tired and dizzy. Hoping the worst of it has passed."

After detailing his experiences, Jinxx continues: "I just wanted to say to everyone to continue to stay safe and please wear a mask! No matter how annoying it is. And take this seriously. This is no hoax, and cases are spiking everywhere, and no-one is immune. And just because you got a negative result doesn't make you immune or mean you may not have just contracted it, so be cautious and maybe think twice about travel and gathering plans over the holiday."

Get well soon, Jinxx! Wishing you a very speedy recovery.
