The actor documented his illness on social media, reminding everyone of the importance of self-isolating in the pandemic.

"Sheltering in place works like this: You don't give it to anyone – You don't get it from anyone. Common sense, no?" he wrote.

"Going to take a while, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts … this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out."
