On Thursday night it was announced that an unnamed member of the Melbourne band Ocean Grove had tested positive for COVID-19 after experiencing symptoms on Monday, March 16.
The sick member of Ocean Grove is currently in good spirits whilst undergoing treatment. The remainder of the band are also undertaking all of the necessary precautions to prevent the virus spreading to them.
There are however grave fears for fans of Ocean Grove; the group completed a publicity tour last weekend, which saw them coming into close contact with fans at meet-and-greet sessions.
“We understand we just completed a promotional run of meet and greets over the weekend in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, and therefore feel a social responsibility to share this news with you immediately,” said a statement on the band’s social media pages. “If you attended one of these signings, please take into consideration the Australian Government’s advice to self-quarantine for two weeks to prevent the spread of the virus. In the event you begin experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, please seek medical attention.”
