Corey Taylor (#8) membagikan kabar bahwa ia tertular COVID-19.
Ia dijadwalkan untuk hadir sebagai solo artist pekan ini di Astronomicon convention di Ann Arbor, Michigan, tapi dibatalkan setelah membagikan video update terkait kesehatannya melalui halaman Facebook event tersebut.
Dalam video yang dibagikan, ia mengabarkan: “I wish I had better news. I woke up today and tested positive, and I’m very, very sick. So I’m not gonna be able to make it this weekend. And I am absolutely devastated. I am so sorry. I hope everyone has a good time, and I promise you I will absolutely try to get back there as soon as I can. I should be okay — it’s the flu. I’m vaccinated, so I’m not worried. But I certainly wouldn’t want to spread it to anyone else. So, everybody be safe out there. And thank you so much. And I will see you again, I promise."
Penyelenggara Astronomicon menambahkan pesan: “Maintaining everyone’s health and safety is paramount in these times. COVID is no joke and can effect anyone, even those who have been vaccinated. Sadly, this includes celebrities. We have just received news via this video message from Corey Taylor, who will sadly no longer be able to make it this weekend. We wish Corey a speedy recovery and we urge everyone to remain vigilant. If you’re coming to Astronomicon, please remember to wear a mask to keep yourself and everyone at the event safe."
