Game of Thrones' Kristofer Hivju Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Kristofer Hivju, best known for his role as Tormund Giantsbane on the HBO series Game of Thrones, has announced that he tested positive for coronavirus.

The 41-year-old actor has been working on the second season of the Netflix series The Witcher and production has now been shut down. The company announced that they will be doing a “deep cleaning and disinfection” of the set following the diagnosis.

Kristofer says that he is only experiencing mild symptoms and that he will be self-isolating at home with his family “for as long as it takes.”

“Greetings from Norway!” he said Instagram. “Sorry to say that I, today, have tested positive for COVID19, Corona virus. My family and I are self-isolating at home for as long as it takes. We are in good health — I only have mild symptoms of a cold. There are people at higher risk for who this virus might be a devastating diagnosis, so I urge all of you to be extremely careful; wash your hands, keep 1,5 meters distance from others, go in quarantine; just do everything you can to stop the virus from spreading. Together we can fight this virus and avert a crisis at our hospitals. Please take care of each other, keep your distance, and stay healthy! Please visit your country’s Center for Disease Control’s website, and follow the regulations for staying safe and protecting not just yourselves, but our entire community, and especially those at risk like the elderly and people with pre-existing conditions.”
