Young & The Restless' Greg Rikaart Has Coronavirus, Calls it the 'Hardest Experience' of His Life

The Young and the Restless star Greg Rikaart has revealed that he tested positive for coronavirus and he calls this the “hardest experience” of his life.

The 43-year-old actor started feeling sick over two weeks ago and he has been in solo quarantine, separate from his family, since March 14.

“I just tested positive for coronavirus. I am a pretty healthy 43-year-old who doesn’t smoke, doesn’t drink much, eats well and exercises regularly and this has been the hardest experience of my life,” Greg wrote on Instagram. “Two+ weeks ago, everyone in my house had a bit of a cough and my son came home from school with a high fever. Everyone recovered, but I deteriorated. I isolated from my family and have been in solo quarantine since Saturday the 14th.”

“I had a fever for 11 days, difficulty breathing and was diagnosed with pneumonia. I’m confident that I have finally turned the proverbial corner and am fever free today for the first time since this all started. I was told to stay isolated for another 72 hours before I acclimate back into my family. So, nice try coronavirus, but I have another 4-5 decades worth of experiences to have with these guys. Furthermore, I want to thank you all for the well wishes and I hope you heed the warnings. Stay safe, stay healthy and stay inside. ❤️,” Greg added.

Greg has been playing the role of Kevin Fisher on the soap opera since 2003. He and husband Robert Sudduth are the parents of a three-year-old son Montgomery.
