Richard Schiff, best known to the viewing public as The West Wing's Toby Ziegler and The Good Doctor's Aaron Glassman, M.D., continues to fight the good fight against the infectious disease known as COVID-19.
On Monday, he updated his fans and said that he was now being treated in hospital and thanked them for their support during this time. You're making it so much easier for @thesheilakelley and me.
'I am in the hospital on Remdesivir, O2 and steroids showing some improvement every day. Meanwhile, Kelley is at home and recovering, but also still ill.
"Covid update. Richard is definitely slammed a bit harder than me or @schiffboat Gus and I are having a better day than yesterday.@Richard_Schiff had a better day yesterday. Please send lots of prayers".
Schiff and Kelley tested positive on Election Day (November 3) but didn't announce it until a week later on November 10. This has been the most freaky week of our lives'.
But in an update, the former "West Wing" star announced he's now being treated with anti-viral medication, oxygen and steroids, whilst his wife remains "fairly ill" at home. "@thesheilakelley is also positive", he tweeted.
She shared her own update, saying the last 72 hours had been "tough". We root for everyone out there who are struggling with this thing.
Sheila added that the illness has given her a new perspective to how she feels about herself. We have both tested positive for COVID-19. We're quarantined in our home in Vancouver, recovering, ' Sheila wrote. Symptoms change radically daily even hourly.
Production on The Good Doctor has continued in the midst of the pair's health struggle, with the filming schedule being reworked to factor in their temporary absence. For now, though, we wish him and Kelley good health, and hope that they can be feeling back to normal before too long.
